A vintage concert poster depicting the late musician Jimi Hendrix, is seen in a exhibition at the Handel House Museum, in central London's Mayfair area on Tuesday. George Frideric Handel and Jimi Hendrix both moved to Britain and changed the face of music, one with a harpsichord and a composer's pen, the other with an electric guitar, the AP writes. They also shared an address, living 200 years apart in adjoining 18th-century London houses. Now, 40 years after Hendrix's death, a new exhibition about his London years brings these two unlikely neighbors together.
