Death of Hendrix
18 September 1970
Jimi's body was found on 18 September at Samarkand Hotel at 22 Lansdowne Crescent in London, the coroners concluded that while he was unconscious from sleeping pills and red wine he choked on his own vomit. The inevitable controversy around his death led to all manner of theories as to why he died. His death was made all the more tragic by the losses of Jim Morrison and Janis Joplin in the same year.
