Andre Benjamin aka Andre 3000 began filming All Is by My Side, a Jimi Hendrix biopic, today in Dublin, Ireland.
However, don’t expect to hear Jimi’s original music. Apparently, the estate is not on board with the biopic. The estate released a statement saying,
“Experience Hendrix CEO Janie Hendrix, sister of Jimi Hendrix, and the EH board have not ruled out a ‘biopic’ in the future though producing partners would, out of necessity, have to involve the company from the inception of any such film project if it is to include original Jimi Hendrix music or composition.”
This means that Andre 3000 will likely have to record covers of all Jimi songs used in the film.
