“What is it with you rock and rollers, you can perform for a thousand people but you can’t be honest with one?”
The Jimi Hendrix biopic was on. Then it was off. Then it was on again. Then it was off.
Turns out, the life and times of one of music’s most enigmatic and revered names is all systems go thanks to actual physical evidence. Hendrix – played by some guy most may have heard of by now in Andre 3000 – is shown speaking with Linda Keith who reflects on how both Jimi and Keith Richards had both written songs for her in All By My Side’s first official trailer.
“I’ve got all these men writing songs for me, then I go home and I listen to them alone.”
Three Stacks looks like a natural in the film that will focus on Hendrix’s – born Jimmy James – rise to fame between 1966 and 1967.
As for a release date, one is not set in stone as of yet, but Side will debut March 12 at SXSW.
