A journalist walks around an exhibition devoted to US musician Jimi Hendrix, being held, at the Handel House Museum in central London, Tuesday Aug. 24, 2010. They were both immigrants in Britain who changed the face of music, one with a harpsichord and a composer's pen, the other with an electric guitar. George Frideric Handel and Jimi Hendrix 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. Handel lived at 25 Brook Street, a Georgian house in the tony Mayfair area for 36 years until his death in 1759. The museum devoted to his life uses the adjoining upstairs apartment where Hendrix lived as offices. (AP Photo/Lefteris Pitarakis)
