On September 18, 1970, Jimi Hendrix went to the basement apartment of his girlfriend, Monika Dannemann, at this location (apartment #22).

Hendrix had taken 9 of her prescribed Vesparax sleeping pills to help him sleep. This particular brand of Belgian sleeping pill was a much stronger presciption then he was used to, and the mix of red wine and sleeping pills cause him to asphyxiate on his own vomit. He was 27 years old.

There are a number of the prerequisite conspiracy theories surrounding Hendrix's death, but those are the established facts.
