Kirk Hammett, Paul McCartney In New Jimi Hendrix Documentary

(Classic Rock) A documentary focusing on Jimi Hendrix's performance at the Atlanta Pop Festival in 1970 will feature interviews with Metallica guitarist Kirk Hammett, Paul McCartney, Steve Winwood and others.

It's officially approved by Experience Hendrix LLC and receives its TV debut on the US Showtime network on September 4, followed by a DVD release via Sony on October 30.

Jimi Hendrix: Electric Church explores how promoter Alex Cooley secured him for the festival bill, just weeks before the guitar icon's death. It includes performance footage of classic tracks plus material that was to appear later, and a version of The Star Spangled Banner that Cooley says "knocked people's socks off." Read more here.
