Jimi Hendrix’ estate isn’t granting full participation for the film-makers of the upcoming biopic All Is By My Side. All Is By My Side is an upcoming movie of the rocker legend that’s supposed to star Andre 3000. According to reports, Experience Hendrix LLC will not release any of Hendrix’ recordings for the film.
The estate said: “Experience Hendrix, LLC, the family-owned company entrusted with safeguarding the legacy of Jimi Hendrix and administrator of the Jimi Hendrix music and publishing catalogue, has made it known many times in the past that no such film, were it to include original music or copyrights created by Jimi Hendrix, can be undertaken without its full participation.”
“Experience Hendrix CEO Janie Hendrix, sister of Jimi Hendrix, and the EH board have not ruled out a ‘biopic’ in the future though producing partners would, out of necessity, have to involve the company from the inception of any such film project if it is to include original Jimi Hendrix music or compositions.”
All Is By My Side, which is being directed by John Ridley, will show the guitar player’s life while in England in 1966 and 1967. | Full Story
