(Newser) – The London flat Jimi Hendrix called home for the last year of his life is being opened to the public next month for the first time since the rock legend's death 40 years ago. A museum next door devoted to George Handel—who would have been Hendrix's neighbor if he'd lived 200 years later—owns the apartment and uses it for office space. Both the flat and the museum have now been turned into a temporary Hendrix exhibition, the BBC reports.
