Hendrix and Handel - level 2
Jimi Hendrix was a great guitar player. In 1942, he was born in Seattle, but in 1968 to 1969, he also lived in London. He died in 1970 at the age of 27.
People refitted his London apartment, and now it looks just as it did when he lived there. The refit cost 2.5 million pounds and took 2 years. The whole place will be open to the public.
The property is right next door to the Handel house where composer Handel lived for 36 years. The two musicians were something like neighbours – but neighbours who were two centuries apart.
Difficult words: apartment (a flat), refit (to restore, to make like new), property (a building).
