First Clip: Andre 3000 As Jimi Hendrix

New footage shows the OutKast frontman playing the electric guitar hero, before the 1967 Monterey Pop Festival

The new Jimi Hendirix biopic, All Is By My Side, is on its way and here's the first clip.

A convincing Andre Benjamin (AKA, Andre 3000, of Hip-Hop duo OutKast) is shown trying to convince his friend and Keith Richard's ex Linda Keith – who Richards says he wrote 'Ruby Tuesday' about – to go away to California for the 1967 Monterey Pop Festival with him.

Jimi tells Linda that she inspired his song 'Red House', as she reminds him that his girlfriend, Kathy Etchingham, played in the film by Hayley Atwell, might not be too impressed.

As uncanny as Andre looks, and as spot-on as his voice seems to be, the film has one colossal spanner in the works.

As Hendix's estate did not give their permission to use his music, the film will contain non of Jimi's material.

We'll see if they manage to make it work.

The fim is scheduled for UK release on the 8 August, 2014.
