I’ll admit that my knowledge of Jimi Hendrix doesn’t extend further than ‘Purple Haze’, ‘Hey Joe’ and ‘The Wind Cries Mary’, yet his personal life and rise to fame is somewhat unfamiliar to me. This is strange considering that ol’ Jimi boy is regarded as one of the most influential electric guitarists in the history of popular music and one of the most celebrated musicians of the 20th century. ‘Jimi: All Is by My Side’ is set to change all of that as the film deals with Jimi’s pre-fame years, is directed by ’12 Years a Slave’ director John Ridley and stars
Jimi Hendrix himself Andre Benjamin.
It’s uncanny how much Andre looks like Jimmy.
You stay classy,
