SXSW 2014: Preview of 'Jimi: All Is By My Side'

Posted By on Mon, Mar 10, 2014 at 10:00 AM

This one is for the folks that have real jobs and can't afford to go to South by Southwest. John Ridley's highly anticipated Jimi Hendrix biopic Jimi: All Is By My Side is expected to debut at SXSW on Wednesday, March 12. Unfortunately, there won't be any songs written by Hendrix in the movie because the late guitarist's estate refused to give approval. Reportedly, Andre 3000 covered tunes by the Beatles, Muddy Waters, the Troggs and other major acts from the sixties instead.

Accordingly to Ridley, this project began some seven years ago when the Oscar-winning screenwriter behind 12 Years a Slave discovered instrumental rarity “Sending My Love to Linda” and decided to learn more about the woman of the title. Linda, according Ridley's film, was Linda Keith, a former girlfriend of Keith Richards who became close with Hendrix and encouraged him to work on original material.
