The Jimi Hendrix Experience reunites – Mitch Mitchell, RIP

Filed under: Music — Tom @ 2:40 pm

Another legend gone. Noel Redding rejoined the band in 2003.



  1. You know, as much as I love Hendrix’s music, I never really thought of Mitchell as being one of the superior rock drummers. But after all the adulation in the obituaries, I’m listening to his playing in a totally different light. The guy was fierce. Of course, you have to be, to keep up with Jimi. Rest in peace.

  2. It’s funny that you mention that because I was the same way for a long time, then I listened closer and realized he really was a great drummer. I don’t know why he slipped past me prior to that. “Subtle,” I guess.
