Re: Why I love the blues, great SRV video
I wouldn't say I'm not a Mitch fan. I am. Mitch...has such a unique style that you can't compare anyone else to him. He lays it back for Redhouse but still he has that "Mitch" flavor too it. (which works great for that song) Only he could do his style. I can't even imitate his style, so I don't try. He was really into Elvin Jones and has a deep jazz background, something I totally lack.
You have to wonder what Mitch would have done w/ SRV. I wonder if he would even get the gig. The 60's were a totally different time. Mitch was one of those guys who could "overplay", without detracting.
