Default Re: Mitch Mitchell

Hi all, I'm new here. I felt stunned when I heard of Mitch's passing. There must be some wicked jamming going on now in Music Heaven with the band reunited. I had the privlege to see Jimi perform in Montreal back in 1968. Being a young drummer at the time I was watching Mitch rather closely. Man, when the band played Manic Depression his hands were just a blur on his rolls. He was a "Stick Man" for sure. I feel that he and the late Mick Waller were two of the best with that style of rock drumming. It's hard when these musicians pass on but, thank God their efforts are now on remastered disc. Peace all.
