Help Jimi Hendrix Get His Way

There's an online petition to have West 8th Street in New York City co-named in honor of Jimi Hendrix.

In 1970, Hendrix opened Electric Lady Studios there, and it's still going in its original location.

The petition states that the "studio's cultural impact on New York's Greenwich Village is immeasurable. For almost 50 years, music's most celebrated recordings have been produced right here on West 8th Street at Electric Lady Studios... From Patti Smith, Stevie Wonder, David Bowie and The Rolling Stones to Lorde, Frank Ocean, St. Vincent and Adele, Hendrix's inspiration and influence is still felt to this day."

Peter Frampton agrees, tweeting, "This has to happen. It’s the least we can do in Jimi’s memory. So much historic music was made there. West 8th St is the place it all happened and still does!"
