This Sunday would have marked Jimi Hendrix‘s 80th birthday. To celebrate, over the next few days Louder will be running stories about this legendary guitarist and his impact on the world of rock music. And to start, we have an exclusive video of Grammy-winner Christone “Kingfish” Ingram playing Jimi’s blues classic Red House on the roof of Hendrix’s last-known residence in London, the Hard Rock Hotel (formerly the Cumberland Hotel).

Filmed on June 10, 2022, the performance celebrated marked Hendrix’s second Blue Plaque. An initiative by English Heritage, Blue Plaques (opens in new tab) adorn buildings that were once occupied by notable historical figures. Jimi’s 1968-69 residence in Brook Street in London’s Mayfair already has one. The 2022 plaque – which was unveiled by Jeff Beck and Jimi’s sister Janie Hendrix – marks his last London residence at what was then known as the Cumberland Hotel (now the Hard Rock Hotel (opens in new tab)).
