Jimi Hendrix: how nine months in London made him a star

"Jimi Hendrix arrived in London on September 24, 1966, as an unknown guitar slinger. By the time he left in June 1967, he was one of the biggest acts in Britain, with a string of hit singles, a debut album that had made number two in the charts behind him, and a reputation for wild virtuoso live performances. Curator of 'Hear My Train A Comin' – Hendrix Hits London' and Hendrix fanatic Jacob McMurray guides James Lachno through the celebrated US musician's explosive first trip to London and how it made him a star. Hendrix died in an ambulance on the way to hospital, apparently suffering from a drug overdose, on September 18 1970."
