Guitar Shaped Jimi Hendrix Memorial Park to Open in Seattle Next Year
If you're the kind of person who loves public parks and famous musicians who died at 27 of drug-related causes, Washington is about to become your favorite tourist destination.
The Jimi Hendrix Park is set to open in Seattle in 2012, the year the legendary guitarist would have turned 70.
The park will be shaped like a guitar and will contain "lyrical stepping stones, rain drums, a sculpted butterfly garden, performance area, sound garden and a green space," as well as a fretboard-shaped bridge.
