The first footage of Outkast rapper Andre 3000 starring as Jimi Hendrix has been revealed.

The clip from the upcoming movie All Is By My Side sees Jimi have a heart-to-heart with Linda Keith (played by British actress Imogen Poots) in a London bar.

A girlfriend of Keith Richards in the mid-sixties, Linda said in a 2013 interview that she lent one of Keith’s guitar to Jimi and gave him a helping hand in the road to stardom.

In the one-minute YouTube clip, Imogen Poots says: "I've got all these men writing songs for me, then I go home and I listen to them alone.

"What is it with you rock and rollers, you can perform for a thousand people but you can't be honest with one?"

Directed by Oscar winning 12 Years A Slave screenplay writer John Ridley, ‘All Is By My Side’ will be screened at South By Southwest in Texas later this month and hits cinema screens in the summer.
