Mitch Mitchell 1947 - 2008

Rock and Roll lost another great drummer. Mitch Mitchell, one of the few drummers that could keep up with Jimi Hendrix, passed away last Wednesday of natural causes following an 18 date tour called Experience Hendrix. Mitch represented the last living member of the trio, "The Jimi Hendrix Experience", R.I.P.
Above is Mitch performing a drum solo in Sweden in 1969 and below one of my personal favorite drum tracks from Mitch, "Catfish Blues" as seen on youtube.
