The first scenes of Outkast’s Andre 3000 as Jimi Hendrix in the biopic All Is By My Side have appeared on YouTube – not as trailers but as clips from the movie.
One excerpt shows Andre as Jimi (in an uncanny resemblance) meeting Linda Keith for the first time. Keith later helped to launch the guitarist’s career in London.
In the clip Andre appears opposite co-star Imogen Poots, detailing how the guitar-slinging legend first caught Keith Richards’ ex-girlfriend’s eye.
Another scene shows Hendrix being introduced by Keith to Chas Chandler (who was later to manage him).
Keith, who has been living in New Orleans for the past few years with partner/producer John Porter, will soon be back in the UK as the couple have decided to relocate there after decades in the USA. Prior to their New Orleans residency they lived in Los Angeles for many years.
The film officially debuts at Austin’s SXSW on March 12.
