The first trailer for Jimi: All Is By My Side has arrived, and if you’ve ever wondered about the “origins” story of one of the greatest rock icons of all time, this is your flick.
Andre 3000 stars as Jimi Hendrix, and the film tells the story of how the Seattle native left his home and traveled to London to become a rock star in the middle of the British invasion.
We’re thinking that risk kind of worked out!
Hendrix headed to London and formed the Experience, his back-up band, and the rest would be history. But, as you see in the below trailer for Jimi: All Is By My Side, it was not the easiest thing, particularly when he fell in love with Imogen Potts’ character. The world was far from ready for an interracial relationship.
