first clip from 'all is by my side'

John Ridley's Jimi Hendrix biopic All Is By My Side stars André 3000, and as MTV reports, the first footage from the film has finally surfaced online. a scene between Hendrix (Andrè) and model/muse Linda Keith (Imogen Poots).

The film won't feature any of Hendrix's original songs—the late rock'n'roll icon's estate objected to the film and refused to grant rights to his music. Instead, the film features scenes where Hendrix covers songs by the Beatles, Elvis Presley, Muddy Waters, and Elmore James.

All Is By My Side will screen at SXSW.
