While the film may lack the authentic punch it possibly could have if they were allowed to use his real music, Andre 3000 comfortably steps into the shoes of Jimi Hendrix in the forthcoming biopic, All Is By My Side. Written and directed by John Ridley who penned 12 Years a Slave, it covers Hendrix’s life and career from 1966-1967 – tracing his rise from backup guitarist at NY’s Cheetah Club, through his tenure in the London music scene, and climaxing with his iconic set at the Monterey Pop Festival. All Is By My Side opens September 26.
