Goodbye Mitch Mitchell

posted by Ramon Medina - LP4 @ 5:46 AM

Could you imagine the Jimi Hendrix Experience without Mitch Mitchell? I sure as hell can't. His distinctive flourishes and his playful style were the perfect compliment to Jimi Hendrix's unparalleled guitar work. Sadly, Mitch passed away this week. I know that's not new news and I'm certain that his contributions are covered in better and in great detail elsewhere but for this morning I say let's just enjoy Jimi, Mitch, and Noel on the Lulu show. (I've always dug the Lulu performance because of the sloppy jump into Sunshine of Your Love. It may not be the band's most professional moment but I always found it charming.)
