Unauthorised Jimi Hendrix Biopic Goes Ahead

The Jimi Hendrix biopic, All is By My Side, starring Andre 3000, will go forward with production; however, Experience Hendrix, LLC is not on board. This means that the film, which is supposed to concentrate on Hendrix’ time in London in 1966 and 1967, can not contain any of Jimi’s music.

Experience Hendrix issued the following statement:

Various media outlets have recently published accounts that indicate a feature-length Jimi Hendrix biographical film is nearing production.

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.

That doesn’t mean that an agreement is still out-of-the-question but Experience Hendrix is just making it clear that, at this point, there is nothing in place.
