What do 18th-century composer George Frideric Handel and rock guitarist Jimi Hendrix have in common you may well wonder? The answer is an address: They were both residents of a swanky street in Mayfair in 17th and 20th centuries respectively. Handel lived at 25 Brook Street, Mayfair and Hendrix lived in a flat at the top of 23 Brook Street, and the two buildings are now open to the public as Handel & Hendrix.

This spring, the venue is hosting a short series of talks lead by guitarist and Hendrix expert Nigel Jones who will be talking about the rock star’s riffs, some of his seminal albums and guitar techniques. Possibly one for serious guitar and tech nerds than your average rock fan.
