Mitch Mitchell RIP (the triumvirate is now closed)

Friends,

Maybe you already knew this because the news is a couple of days old, but Mitch Mitchell, drummer for the Jimi Hendrix Experience, passed away on November 12.

Mitch was an amazing drummer; he brought the jazz influence of virtuoso Elvin Jones in an unforgettable way to the Experience, and his own personal inflections were beyond powerful. He played with Hendrix throughout his entire stardom, from his first album in 1967 onto his more free-form experimentations with Band of Gypsys. It's Mitch you see on drums for most of Hendrix's career, most notably the Woodstock show of '69 (where he was accompanied by other percussionists). He delivered both the aforementioned technical flare - equalled in the rock world only by Keith Moon of the Who and John Bonham of Led Zeppelin - and an unflinching professionalism to the often chaotic world of late 60's Jam.

As a member of the Jimi Hendrix Experience he was preceded in death both by Jimi (1970) and bassist Noel Redding (2003).

Enough said. A sad day.

Tony
