What people are saying:

Jimi Hendrix, famous American guitarist, singer and musician. Jimi's grandmother lived in Strathcona, an African-American community near Vancouver's Chinatown, where Jimi spent a lot of time. The Jimi Hendrix Shrine (the altar) was once open to the public, but it is now being repaired and no remains are seen.
