The world's largest collection of Jimi Hendrix rock memorabilia, believed to be worth more than £8m, goes on display in London on Friday.
Hendrix' Fender Stratocasters are on display
Hundreds of unseen pictures, film footage and original recordings will be exhibited at the revived Marquee Club in central London over the weekend.
The venue is one of the first places Hendrix played in the UK.
The items are part of a collection amassed by fan Bob Terry, which is due to be sold off in 2005.
Mr Terry collected memorabilia for almost 40 years after seeing Hendrix play live in 1967.
The exhibition at the Marquee Club is just one-fifth of the £15m collection, which Mr Terry sold for personal reasons in 2003 to an anonymous American buyer.
The exhibition has footage of the star playing at Woodstock, the Isle of Wight and Monterey, where Hendrix memorably held up a burning guitar sealing his reputation as a rock 'n' roll legend.

Following his Monterey performance, Hendrix fame grew selling millions of albums in the US where he played to packed venues.
Hendrix died in London in 1970, just four years after he arrived in the city and set the music world alight with his revolutionary style of guitar playing.
"The collection covers every aspect of Jimi's life," Ted Owen, co-founder of auction house Cooper Owen told BBC News Online last month.
"He was like a hurricane when he hit London - and influenced the likes of Eric Clapton, Paul McCartney, John Lennon, John Mayall and Steve Winwood."
"The exhibition will show how Hendrix came to dominate the scene."
