Andre 3000’s been playing guitar 6 hours a day for upcoming Hendrix biopic

Outkast’s Andre 3000 spent six hours a day playing his guitar as a lefty in order to get ready to play Jimi Hendrix in the new biopic, “Jimi: All Is by My Side”, which is being screened at South by Southwest this week. It comes out in theatres in June.

The film’s producer Danny Bramson said: “I found a really patient teacher and put together a regimen for Andre when he came out to Los Angeles. He sat in a small studio, six hours a day, putting in dedication to play left-handed.”

The producer said that Andre was the movie’s “one and only choice” to play Hendrix.

VIDEO: Fight breaks out at MN gym

A huge fight at an LA Fitness gym in Roseville, MN started over a call on a basketball court, and led to 10 to 15 people being involved.

A police rep said, “People were actually throwing two and a half, five, 10 pound weights within the building,” but this recent fight is just part of a bigger problem.

Police say the gym has been plagued with crime in recent years, and they responded to

147 incidents there in 2013.

Police are frustrated with the gym because their requests to put in security cameras or have guards on site have all been denied, making it difficult for them to take action.

Three adults and three juveniles were arrested after this latest brawl, and one person was taken to a hospital and treated for a concussion.
