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. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band”, as well as “Wild Thing,” “Hound Dog,” Muddy Waters’ “Mannish Boy” and Elmore James’ “Bleeding Heart,” plus “Future Trip” and “Driving South,” on which originally Hendrix played backup on for Curtis Knight and the Squires.

    Biopic with no actual material from the artist? Sounds like they should have shelved this if they didn’t get approval IMO. I was interested in seeing this but this news is a huge red flag that either it completely sucks or his estate sucks, either way sounds like the end result will be lacking at this point.
