Written and Directed by Oscar-winning screenwriter, John Ridley, of 12 Years A Slave, ‘All Is By My Side’ takes a look into the formative breakthrough years of the legendary, American rock n’roll Musician/ Singer/Songwriter, Jimi Hendrix, before his before his accidental death from barbiturate-related asphyxia at the age of 27 in 1970.  Rapper/Singer/Songwriter/Multi-Instrumentalist/Producer and Actor, Andre Benjamin (aka Andre 300) nails his dead on portrayal as Hendrix in this soon to be released biopic. 

 

Like so many of us, Hendrix’s sound could be the soundtrack of our lives, so to simply say I am excited to see this film seems to diminish the potency of how much I was and am still heavily influenced by this musician’s music today. Below is a sneak peek clip from ‘All Is By My Side’ with Andre Benjamin alongside Actress, Imogen Poots who portrays model and muse Linda Keith, who inspired songs from Hendrix and past partner Keith Richards.
