It appears that we will see André 3000 on the big screen portraying Jimi Hendrix in the legendary guitarist’s biopic,  All Is By My Side. The shooting of the movie will start next month in Ireland. Ironically, because Jimi Hendrix has played in many countries, but has never played in Ireland.

The Irish Film & Television Network has secured a plot of the film:

“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.
Over that period – 1966 to 67 – Hendrix went on to formulate some of the greatest guitar-driven records ever made.”
