    Jimi Hendrix is Reborn Again
    John Ridley's Hendrix biopic, All Is by My Side, starring dead ringer and Outkast member André Benjamin as Jimi (but without any of Jimi's actual music), premiered last month at the Toronto Film Festival (to mixed reviews). On Nov. 5, Bloomsbury publishes Starting At Zero: His Own Story, a collection of Hendrix's own lyrics and writings — on hotel stationary, cigarette packs and beer mats — stitched together with interviews and lyrics. That same day, Experience Hendrix, Jimi's official estate, unleashes their own double-dose: American Masters: Jimi Hendrix — Hear My Train A Comin', a PBS documentary (beefed up with extras for the DVD), and Miami Pop Festival, a CD and double 12" vinyl release marking the first time the Experience's 1968 performance hits the non-bootleg market.
