Personal Items Of Jimi Hendrix To Go On Exhibit At The Smithsonian

According to UPI, some of late rock icon Jimi Hendrix's personal items have been loaned by his sister to the Smithsonian's National Museum of the American Indian for an exhibit.

The museum said Janie Hendrix brought a colorful patchwork full-length leather coat, a leather necklace and a leather pouch to be shown in Up Where We Belong: Native Musicians in Popular Culture, which is to open July 1.

"These are among the very few of the rock legend's possessions sent home to his family from his apartment in New York after he died on Sept. 18, 1970. Though Hendrix's father asked that all of his son's belongings be sent home to Seattle, including 100 guitars, scant few arrived," the Smithsonian said in a news release Wednesday.
