Eric Gales is the man that should play Hendrix...lefthand Guitar and all...he can play the songs live standing on his head and has the style of a true Blues/Rock Guitar Player...keep the rappers out of Jimi's music...they have sampled his music now leave him alone.



This is ridiculous. I was kinda excited about this movie until I read that. You'd think something would have been at least discussed before the film got the green light. If it ever does see the light of day, I think Andre 3000 will make a great Hendrix as he actually is a pretty good actor.

I guess I won't get to see why Jimi is considered innovative.


You should know how much of an innovator he was just by hearing his music. If you can't figure that out, I don't think seeing the movie is gonna help you figure it out.


It's funny the real point is danced around they say it will need to be in cooperation with or production partners etc but really all it comes down to is $$$.

They should just come out and say it .We want this "insert money amount" up front to allow this movie to be made and include hendrix music and we want this "insert desired percentage" of back end profits.

It's really that simple



I think you hit the nail on the head.
$$$ makes things happen ALL THE TIME it seems.
Unless it is for a Led-Zeppelin tour.
