Hendrix Family Home Being Torn Down

The Central Area home where Jimi Hendrix spent much of his childhood is being dismantled in compliance with a Renton city mandate, writes the Renton Reporter. The residence is currently located in a mobile-home park, and hasn't been up to code since it was bought by Pete Sikov and wheeled out of its original location in Seattle several years ago. (Sikov had hoped to turn the home into a Hendrix-themed museum.) It's a pretty safe bet that everything from the floorboards to copper pipes will be auctioned publicly sometime soon, given people's unyielding propensity to cash in on the late guitar god's legacy.
