LOS ANGELES, March 6 (UPI) -- Footage from the upcoming Jimi Hendrix biopic All is By My Side finds André 3000 taking on the role of the rock legend.

All is By My Side will focus of Hendrix's life before he became famous, a time when he was just a back-up guitarist named Jimmy James. Later, a fan named Linda Keith takes him to London in 1966 where he transforms into Jimi.

In the one-minute, 19-second clip, Hendrix and Linda (Imogen Poots) have a flirty conversation before he flies out to California. During their talk, Hendrix tells his former lover he's written a song about her.
