Andre 3000 As Jimi Hendrix


This is the first official photo of Andre 3000 in costume as Jimi Hendrix for John Ridley’s film All Is By My Side. The image is from the Toronto Film Festival website where the film will premiere on August 20th. The Hendrix estate did not grant the director permission to use Hendrix’s actual music but Andre 3000 will do covers of Beatles’ songs that Hendrix performed and recorded. We are all curious to see the film especially since the real music will not be used but with Andre playing the lead Hendrix’s desire to reach
people beyond the rock and roll industry demographic will be achieved.
