andre 3000 jimi hendrix all by my side First Footage Of Andre Benjamin (Andre 3000) As Jimi Hendrix In All Is By My Side

Open Road and XLrator have debuted this first clip from writer-director John Ridley (Oscar-winning ’12 Years a Slave’ screenwriter) and Andre Benjamin’s Jimi Hendrix project, ‘All Is By My Side.’ Described by Ridley as one of the most rarely told stories in rock history, ‘All Is By My Side’ charts just over a year in a man’s life.  The year he blossomed and became Jimi Hendrix.  The year he spent as a young musician trying to make it on the streets and in the clubs of London, England.  The lovers, friends, and musical collaborators, who helped him get there.  Starring Andre Benjamin as Hendrix, ‘All Is By My Side’ also features a stellar supporting cast including Hayley Atwell, Imogen Poots, and Ruth Negga. Expect a release date shortly. As a huge Hendrix fan as well as a huge Andre fan, I’m excited for this!
