Jimi Hendrix may be one of the most exhaustively chronicled performers in rock music history, but a new book aims for a fresh angle on the legendary guitarist, whose life has been mythologized to the point where it often overshadows his music.

Producers of the upcoming Jimi Hendrix biopic say they never planned on using original songs from the guitarist, because the movie will be set before hits like ‘Purple Haze’ and ‘The Wind Cries Mary’ were released. ‘All Is By My Side,’ starring Andre Benjamiin (aka Andre 3000 of the hip-hop group Outkast) may be ready for the 2013 Sundance Festival.
