The first picture of the upcoming biopic on Jimi Hendrix was released today, and if you didn't know, none other than Andre 3000 has the part of the legendary musician. This was revealed via the Toronto International Film Festival’s website, where All Is By My Side premieres in September.
The biopic will unfortunately not feature any songs by Hendrix, as his estate declined permission. But Dre will be performing songs from The Beatles and Muddy Waters as the film will focus on a year of Hendrix's life from 1966-1967. Here's the official All Is By My Side description to further entice you. Yeah, I really want to see this.
"Jimmy James, an unknown backup guitarist, left New York City for London, England in 1966. A year later he returned — as Jimi Hendrix. All Is By My Side brings authenticity and poignancy to the story of the man behind the legend, and of the people who loved and inspired him."
