Re: R.I.P.: Mitch Mitchell
I was very shocked & saddened when I read about Mitch Mitchell's death. I was a drummer, about 13 years old, when I first heard him and he immediately became MY FAVORITE DRUMMER because of the way he played - his mixing of Jazz & Rock was SO fresh and inspiring to me! The very cool kind of drum rolls and accents, the whole sound blew me away.
I do remember an album he did a few years after Hendrix's death with a female electric guitar player - named April Something.....in NY.
I loved him so much more than the other big drummers of the day - Bonham, Ginger Baker....
We'll miss you dearly, Mitch!
