    According to amc news, it looks like there's going to be a new biopic based on the legendary musician, Jimmy Hendrix.  The only problem is that the studio making the film failed to land to rights to use any of his songs from his estate, so in his own biopic, they will playing other songs from other bands that were popular during most of his era like the beattles and etc instead.  What do you guys think?

      Seems that the most crucial part of the movie will be missing which will really hinder the credibility of the story

      This film will be DOA. You cannot have a film about a musician without reaturing music made by that musician

    I think the Hendrix estate needs to quit being so tight-ass with their music licensing. This is not the first film project about Jimi that has run into this exact same problem. There was a made-for-TV bio about Jimi about ten or twelve years ago that had no music in it at all!!
