Default Re: R.I.P.: Mitch Mitchell

I was truly sad to hear the news today of the passing of Mitch Mitchell. I think I was in Junior high school when I really started listening to Hendrix. The drums caught my attention right away, I used to spend hours trying to imitate those incredible fills he had. I loved how he brought jazz drumming into rock, his style was the perfect compliment to Jimmy's playing. He will never be forgotten, he will and has influenced a whole other generation of drummers. He was definately one of my early influences. Today I jammed to Spanish Castle Magic, Fire and Crosstown Traffic in honor of Mitch. A big loss to the drumming community. What are your favorite Mitch Mitchell tunes to play along with?
