Hendrix Estate Not Backing Movie

If the recently announced Jimi Hendrix biopic, All By My Side (story), makes it to the silver screen it may have to get there without the cooperation of or rights to Hendrix material that the late guitarist's estate has control over.  A release from Experience Hendrix, LLC addressing the film says, '...the family owned company entrusted with safeguarding the legacy of Jimi Hendrix and administrator of the Jimi Hendrix music and publishing catalog, 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.'  The production company involved in the film casting rapper Andre 3000 in the title role has declined to respond directly to the verbal warning shot, other than to remark that the issue of whether Hendrix music will be featured in the movie is a, '...valid question, but we're not getting into specifics of what we've shared so far.'
