Released this week, “Jimi: All is By My Side” stars Outkast’s Andre
Benjamin as world-renowned, 60’s American guitarist Jimi Hendrix.
Written and directed by John Ridley, who wrote the
screenplay for 12 Years a Slave, “Jimi,”
chronicles one year of Hendrix’s life, the year he moved from New York
as a session guitarist and back-up musician to London where he steps
into his solo act and later becomes a reigning rock god.
