Mitch Mitchell 1946 – 2008 Thursday November 13, 2008, 2 comments

From the AP:

PORTLAND — Authorities say Mitch Mitchell, drummer for the legendary Jimi Hendrix Experience of the 1960s, has been found dead in his Portland hotel room. “Erin Patrick, a deputy medical examiner in Multnomah County, says Mitchell was found dead a little after 3 a.m. today in his room at the Benson Hotel in downtown Portland. “ She says Mitchell apparently died of natural causes at 62. An autopsy is planned.”

All members of the legendary Jimi Hendrix Experience are now dead. Noel Redding, the bass player, died in 2003 of complications related to cirrhosis of the liver, and Jimi himself of a drug overdose in 1970.

Perhaps someday the confluence of time and place will create an environment as successfully musically experimental as the late 1960s, and the world will see another band as great as the Jimi Hendrix Experience.

Adrian how come you have Noel Redding as the header even though it was Mitch that died? Sad that he died, he was a great drummer.
