R.I.P. Mitch Mitchell


mitch-mitchell

I was very sorrowed to hear that Mitch Mitchell passed away yesterday November 12th. He was said to have died of natural causes. I know a lot of you realize that I am truly passionate about Hip-Hop, but my first real introduction into the music business was classic rock, shit my dad grew up on. I will always have an utmost respect for great rock groups, and the Hendrix Experience was nothing close to short of that. I honestly think that Mitch’s work was so pivotal with the Experience, that their sound wouldn’t be near what it was without him. I could say in my opinion Mitch was one of the top 10 drummers of all time without question. Mitch’s style of “lead” drumming pioneered the way for others like Ginger Baker (of Cream), and will never be forgotten.
