All Along the Watchtower

Did you know George Frederick Handel- Baroque composer- and Jimmy Hendrix– guitar hero- actually lived next to each other in 23 and 25 Brook Street in Mayfair, London.

Sure they lived there 200 years apart, but knowing that one can’t help fantasising what it would have been like for Hendrix and Handel to jam together. Handel providing an extempore harpsichord, or a chamber organ part for ‘All Along the Watchtower’.

But why wonder? It’s not as if there is any shortage of musical geniuses out there. Someone should be able to knock something up.

Hint! Hint!
