Jimi Hendrix biopic All Is By My Side trailer released

André Benjamin as Jimi Hendrix

A trailer of the forthcoming Jimi Hendrix biopic, “All Is By My Side”, has been released.

Due in theaters September 26 and directed by John Ridley (“12 Years A Slave”), the film features OutKast’s André Benjamin as the guitar icon.

“All Is By My Side” covers a year in Hendrix’s life from 1966-67, following his path as an unknown backup guitarist playing New York’s Cheetah Club to making his mark in London’s music scene up…right up until his triumphant performance at the Monterey Pop festival.

The film, which debuted last fall at the Toronto International Film Festival, does not include any of Hendrix’s music as the family-run estate refused to grant permission for the use of any material. Instead, producers feature cover songs performed by the guitarist and re-recorded especially for the project.
