A drama based on Jimi Hendrix's life as he left New York City for London, where his career took off.
Jimi: All Is by My Side is a 2013 British-Irish drama film about Jimi Hendrix, written and directed by John Ridley. It was screened in the Special Presentation section at the 2013 Toronto International Film Festival and at the South by Southwest film festival and was released in the UK on 8 August 2014. The film screened at the New Zealand International Film Festival (NZIFF) on 26 July 2014.
The film does not include any songs written by Hendrix, as the filmmakers' request to use them was denied by Experience Hendrix LLC (Hendrix's estate). Instead, the film set in London in 1966 and 1967 includes the songs that Hendrix performed during those years, shortly before the release of his debut album, Are You Experienced. All musical parts were played by Waddy Wachtel (guitar), Leland Sklar (bass), Kenny Aronoff (drums). Wachtel wrote bits of music for the film that sound similar to the Experience's early songs.View Complete TeamFX Credits
