Jimi Hendrix's home to be demolished

The owner of a run-down home where Jimi Hendrix once lived plans to move it to suburban Renton, across from the cemetery where the rock legend is buried.

The owners have until Friday to provide completed plans for moving the house; otherwise, Seattle officials say they will demolish it.

The house was moved a few blocks three years ago to make way for a housing development. Its current location in the Central District, a vacant lot on South Jackson Street, was provided by the city to give the building's supporters time to find a new location for it or to buy the lot and fix up the home there.

The James Marshall Hendrix Foundation wants to turn the home into a music-oriented youth center. Hendrix's father, Al Hendrix, owned it from 1953 to 1956.

The city has given repeated warnings and deadlines to the owners of the house, who were originally supposed to move the house in February.

"Seattle has given the owners of this house 3 1/2 years to take care of this. We've worked with them, we've given them a place to store the house. They need to find a permanent solution," said Seattle spokeswoman Katherine Schubert-Knapp.

On Wednesday, co-owner Henry Lewis surveyed the property. He said city hasn't cooperated with the owners of the home.


"One thing that they had said earlier is that if we didn't move the house they were going to bulldoze it and charge us $30,000 to bulldoze the house ... what's fair about that," said Lewis.

John Franklin, director of departmental operations for the mayor's office, said the city doesn't have other plans for the property at the moment.

#1 Jimi's not using it anymore
#2 How do you own a house and not the property, is it a double wide?
#3 they have no plans for the property but they want the house removed, Something's fishy
#4 I don't really care, but i love Hendrix's music, I listen and can hear Jimi.

Thanks! :-/

I'm not a fan of that type of music, but I thought that some people would be interested in this.

No I'm not a rick and roll type of person. Some of it is OK, but most of it, IMO, is garbage. :-P

Went to the EMP (Experience Music Project) for the first time over Memorial Weekend. I was bored out of my mind. Now the SciFi Museum next door.... ;-D

I like the 80's and 90's hip hop type of music (C+C Music Factory, Paula Abdul). I like some country (Twain and Keith).

If you think Hendrix is crap, you're messed up on the head.

I'm searching for the Woodstock clip of him playing the National Anthem with his teeth. Absolutely insane.
