Jimi Hendrix’s Flat

Commemorating the 50th Anniversary
of the death of Jimi Hendrix in London on 18th September 1970.

Hitch a ride with The Rock Cab and let Stephen Channell, your Rock & Roll cabbie, transport you back in time to when Hendrix ruled the world.

Widely recognised as one of the most creative and influential musicians of the 20th Century Jimi Hendrix arrived in London when the swinging 60’s were in full swing. In just 4 years he left a legacy on the city unmatched by any of his contemporaries, a legacy that is as strong today as it was 50 years ago when tragically his life ended at just 27 years of age.

The Cross Town Traffic Tour is your 3 hour complete Hendrix extravaganza that will take you to 15 landmarks associated with the Godfather of Electric Guitar.

CROSS TOWN TRAFFIC TOUR - highlights include:

  • The Scotch of St. James – visit the west end club where it all began. Hear what happened on his first night in London when one short jam session changed the course of Rock history.
  • The Bag of Nails – venue for the legendary show case where a host of rock royalty including members of The Rolling Stones, The Beatles and The Who witnessed Jimi’s incredible talent for the first time and realised what they were now up against.
  • 34 Montagu Square – Stand on the steps of Ringo Starr’s former London apartment and hear how “The Wind Cried Mary” and the infamous drug trip that saw his illustrious tenants evicted.
  • Olympic Studios – now a cinema, cafe and restaurants, Olympic Studios gave birth to the Hendrix sound. This is where Hendrix recorded the bulk of his seminal debut album “Are You Experienced”. Hear all the stories, myths and anecdotes associated with this iconic album and how it became one of the most influential recordings in Rock History.
  • 22 Landsdowne Crescent – we finish the tour at the spot where Jimi breathed his last breath. The site of the former Sanmarkland Hotel will forever be etched into the hearts and minds of all Hendrix fans. We go back to September 1970 and relive the last fateful moments of his life with a day-by-day account of the events leading up to his sad demise.
