It’s been a while since we found out that Outkast’s Andre 3000 would be playing the late guitar legend Jimi Hendix in a biopic called All is By My Side. The film so far was shown at the 2013 Toronto International Film Festival and the image above was used for its promotion, but otherwise, there’s been nothing released to the public and still no U.S. release date.

Now, the first look at All is By My Side is online in the form of a clip from the film, which you can watch here below.

The 80-second clip shows Andre 3000 as Hendrix talking with Imogen Poots, who plays Linda Keith, a Vogue model credited as being a major influence on the guitarist and an integral part of his rise to stardom.

Jack White Named Ambassador For 6th Annual Record Store Day
  |  

Jack White, harbinger of all things cool and creative, best known as the progenitor, singer/songwriter, and guitarist extraordinare of The White Stripes, whose main purpose was to simply usher back in the power of rock and roll for rock and roll’s sake in this day and age, has been named this year’s ambassador for Record Store Day, which is to take place on April 20, 2013.

That day becomes a celebration of all things vinyl, that black spherical piece of wax which for so many decades was the norm and rightful heir of how music was played, creating not just a “revolution” (pun firmly intended) in sound and sound production and presentation, but also created an entire lifestyle for so many of its fans and collectors.

In the wake of the supposed vinyl demise about a decade or so ago, when digital mediums became the norm in how one listens to and collects music, the vinyl record has become a sort of mainstay still, not just to those who have a penchant for the vintage and historic, but it’s also created a sub-genre unto itself of multitudes of fans who still swear by its sonic glories.

BBC Plays ‘Hey Joe’ After Report On Oscar Pistorius, The Olympian On Trial For Shooting His Girlfriend
  |  @   |  

Soon after the 9/11 attacks on America, Clear Channel issued a list to their numerous radio stations of songs not to play, due to what the company deemed as “questionable lyrics.” Tunes with titles like Blue Oyster Cult’s “Burnin’ for You,” The Gap Band’s “You Dropped a Bomb on Me,” and R.E.M.’s “It’s the End of the World as We Know It (And I Feel Fine)” unsurprisingly made the list, but so did any song that could even slightly be associated with terror attacks, flying, bombs, plane crashes, guns, smoke, or fires, as was anything considered ironic at the moment (Louis Armstrong’s “What a Wonderful World”, AC/DC’s “”Safe in New York City”).

One song that made it inexplicably onto this list was the Jimi Hendrix Experience version of “Hey Joe,” which is all about a man named Joe who shot his girlfriend after finding out that she cheated on him. While it involves gun violence, it was a stretch to be on a post-9/11 “do not play” list, especially since the song title itself isn’t controversial. But you know when it’s not a good idea to play “Hey Joe”? Right after reporting on the Oscar Pistorius trial, where the gold medalist stands accused of shooting and killing his model girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp.
