Jimi Hendrix Shrine Endangered
A so-called "shrine" to Jimi Hendrix is in danger of being razed in Vancouver, British Columbia. The "shrine" is an old building that was once part of a restaurant where Hendrix' grandmother used to work and where Hendrix spent time as a youth. The Chinatown area of Vancouver, where the building is located, has hit on hard times and the city would like to revitalize it. A local developer wants to see the area re-zoned to allow him to build a series of high rise apartments. As you might expect there are activists that don't want to see this happen.
