R.I.P Mitch Mitchell

Mitch Mitchell, the drummer of the Jimi Hendrix Experience passed away on November 12.

A jazz-influenced snare drum madman, Mitchell was responsible for the unforgettable beats on Experience tracks "Crosstown Traffic", "Voodoo Child (Slight Return)" and "Fire".

Mitchell was found dead in his room at the Benson Hotel in Portland, Oregon, apparently of natural causes. He was 61.

Without a doubt, one of my favourite drummers. God damn!
