If the wig fits, WEAR IT!

Earlier this month, we reported that Andre 3000, formally of Outkast, was tapped to play the legendary Jimi Hendrix in a new biopic.

Filming began this weekend in Dublin, Ireland and Andre was transformed into the guitarist to the amazement of all who looked on.

It's a pretty spot on look! We're having a separated at birth moment here!

Let's just hope Andre and the rest of the crew behind this movie do Jimi proud!

Although Katy performed last night at the Billboard Music Awards with a Brand look-alike, it now seems like she could’ve been singing about someone else!

Freddie Mercury optical illusion performing

Tupac isn't the only long gone musical icon that is miraculously performing again. We just heard that Freddie Mercury is coming back from the grave to the stage too!

Someone's going to rock out with their baby blocks out!

A big hearty congratulations to Korn guitarist James "Munky" Shaffer and Evis Xheneti who have announced they are expecting a child!

Here's what Xheneti said:

"We are so utterly elated to announce that we are expecting our first child due late this fall. We have been dying to share this news with everyone.”

This is the couple's first (but hopefully not last) child together.

They expect the baby to rock-and-roll on out in November of 2012.

Go see the soon-to-be-dad perform with Korn this summer!

Wow!

You cannot deny that he is committed to this cause!

Former Rage Against the Machine guitarist and Nightwachman Tom Morello was originally expected to perform at the Swan Dive in Austin for SXSW last night, but managed to turn his set into a full-blown Occupy gathering, which he organized in conjunction with Occupy Austin - and even after the police shut him down, he continued on!

Morello started his set for SXSW badge holders, but then informed them that a "people's stage" had been erected to broadcast the show on the street for the protestors and general public!

At last call, he then announced:
