Hendrix Home Under Threat
The house Jimi Hendrix used to live in has been threatened with the demolition ball.
According to kirotv.com, the home where Jimi Hendrix used to play the ukulele as a teen has hit a sour note with the City of Renton, Washington.
The owner has to move it by March 27th or steps will be made to tear it down.
In 2006, the house was moved from Seattle’s Central District to a mobile home park across the street from where the guitar legend is buried. Renton had high hopes for the area, which attracts thousands of visitors every year.
Many local residents didn’t even know the home was there until it was brought to their attention.
“I think out of respect it should be in better shape,” said Renton resident Erin Pattison.
