"The film will be set in 1966 and 1967 and cover the period in which Hendrix was discovered in a New York club by Rolling Stone guitarist Keith Richard’s then girlfriend Linda Keith. She subsequently introduced Hendrix to manager Chas Chandler who brought Hendrix to London in 1966, where he recorded his debut album ‘Are You Experienced’ and had his first taste of success", writes the IFTN.
Here's a first look at Andre 3000 as Jimi Hendrix in the upcoming biopic 'All Is By My Side' directed by John Ridley, and currently being shot in Ireland.
