First Look at Andre 3000 as Jimi Hendrix

Our first look at the upcoming Jimi Hendrix film, All is By My Side, has surfaced online.

The clip features Outkast rapper Andre 3000 as Jimi Hendrix and Imogen Poots, who is portraying Linda Keith.

The short clip features a conversation between Hendrix and Keith about the upcoming Monterey Pop Festival.  That festival has long been considered one of Hendrix's first big breaks.

The film will get its US premiere at this month's South By Southwest festival.

The film does not include any of Hendrix's songs, because his sister, Janie, refused permission.  There will be new versions of covers played by Hendrix.

 

Rolling Stone also shared a clip of Hendrix's manager attempting to convince the musician to move to London.
