Andre 3000 will portray Jimi Hendrix in All Is By My Side, which is currently filming in Ireland. Hendrix’s estate is unfortunately not allowing any songs written by Jimi in the film (?), however the producers have cleverly found a way around the hurdle.
Instead, Andre 3000 has cut cover versions of songs that Hendrix himself covered, including The Beatles “Sgt.
