Slash on Hendrix Biopic: 'If Anyone Should Portray Jimi, It's Andre 3000'
Discussing late guitar legend Jimi Hendrix, Slash touched on the matter of Hendrix biopic starring OutKast frontman Andre 3000.

Despite noting that he doesn't like seeing actors portraying musicians, the guitarist gave Andre kudos, dubbing him the perfect fit.

"He's electric rock 'n' roll guitar, personified," the axeman told Artisan News about Jimi. "He's somebody that created his own identity and it's as strong today as when he first came on the scene in 1966 or whenever it was."

Focusing on the biopic and Andre 3000, Slash added, "I actually hate seeing actors portray musicians, but if anybody would be a good choice, he definitely is."

During a separate Fuse TV chat, Slash announced plans to release his new studio record in September. "I'm thinking ... well, I'm more than thinking. I'm pretty sure, September," he briefly noted.

In the latest "Real to Reel" studio update, Slash unveiled some of the killer riffs from the upcoming effort, confirming that the recording of bass and drums is officially complete and describing the new material as "far and above the last record."
