Andre 3000 as Jimi Hendrix in "All Is By My Side"

Having debuted at last year's Toronto International Film Festival, All is By My Side, is coming to theatres (in the UK at least) in August as well as a host of film festivals. The film stars Outkast rapper Andre 3000 as Jimi Hendrix. Written and directed by John Ridley, who also 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.
