I believe that Mitch Mitchell's drumming influence on rock music is underestimated
I know what you mean. Perhaps overshadowed is a better term than underrated. Hendrix's inimitable flare was the talk of the globe.By who exactly would a player like Mitch Mitchell be “underrated” or “underestimated”..?
As far as i remember, Mitchell has always been spoken about as one of THE legends of drumming..
Those terms like “underrated”, etc for legendary players, only exist on internet forums like this, where some people also would say that they consider Mitchell to be overplaying a lot (yep, no joke, check the archives..lol)..
In the real world, there is no serious player who would “underestimate” or “underrate” Mitchell’s influence on drumming..
On the internet however, people will feel no shame to criticize Mitchell, Bonham, Baker, Paice or even Porcaro (yep, again no joke..lol)..
I guess, whatever keeps people busy......
It's really a matter of terminology. There are tasteful ways to execute notes and distasteful ways to execute notes. The definition of tasteful is discretionary. What sounds clumsy and crowded to one ear might be bold and arresting to another. Regardless, I've encountered drumming I would certainly be comfortable referring to as overplaying. That's my discretionary assessment.reverplaying
I don't believe overplaying exists. Not realistically, that is. As long as you are capable of playing something and evoking musical thought, whatever it is, will work for that song.
Take AC/DC for example. I'm sure if anybody made a drum cover or whatever, and they played....dear god.....fills! You'd have hounds of people saying you're overplaying, that Phil Rudd was perfect, etc. But let's be honest. If AC/DC had a more competent drummer....let's say, Cozy Powell! And he drummed on all those classic AC/DC records, and we never knew that Phil Rudd existed, I guarantee you people will still like those songs and still like the drumming. We just don't have the original as a nostalgic frame of reference.
Same with the other way. Imagine Ringo playing The Who! And here's the thing.....it would actually work! Then this dolt comes along....his last name is Moon or something-or-other....and he bashes through the song, people would cry out "Overplaying overplaying!".....because in this universe, they don't have that frame of reference.

To be fair he didn't choose Mitch completely. He couldn't decide between Mitchell and Aynsley Dunbar so flipped a coin.I've always considered Mitch underrated, perhaps inevitable when Hendrix is stealing the show. Great drummer regardless. Jimmy could have played with anyone. He chose Mitch.
I watched a Hendrix documentary not long ago in which the formation of the "Experience" is addressed. Jimi's selection process was interesting to say the least. Regardless, Mitch is a master worthy of every ounce of success he's achieved. All worked well in the end, with the exception of Jimi's untimely exit.To be fair he didn't choose Mitch completely. He couldn't decide between Mitchell and Aynsley Dunbar so flipped a coin.
Very glad that coin flip favourited Mitch, though.
