Default Re: Mitch Mitchell dead at 61.

That is really, really sad news. He influenced so many drummers that came up not only during his tenure but in the years since. I remember seeing him in old videos. He just looked like this young, brash and confident drummer playing some wicked stuff.

"Fire" will always be one of the great rock-n-roll drumming songs. Who doesn't like playing along with that?

RIP Mitch. Thanks for giving us some great music.
