The word legend is bandied around a bit too easily these days. To carry that title you've got to do something different, something truly groundbreaking, that echoes through time long after your body has called it a day.

Jimi Hendrix is a true legend. You could argue that there isn't one guitarist playing today who hasn't at some point taken influence or inspiration from the man who wrote Little Wing, If 6 Was 9, Crosstown Traffic, Purple Haze and many more. Almost as importantly, he left behind a truly memorable style template – half bohemian hippie vagabond, half afro-ed revolutionary icon – more 60s than Harold Wilson driving a tie-dyed VW campervan.

Now we get to see the great man's style emulated by another celebrated dandy, as Outkast's André 3000 attempts to fill Hendrix's Chelsea boots in the big screen biography, Jimi: All Is By My Side.

At first glance, it looks like he's nailed it, from the voice and the philosophical approach to shredding to – of course – the paisley-patterned perfection of the outfits. Take a look at the trailer below.
