Mitch Mitchell R.I.P. Last of the Hendrix Trio

13 Nov

From the  BBC:

Mitch Mitchell, the British drummer in the seminal 1960s band the Jimi Hendrix Experience, has been found dead in his US hotel room, authorities say.

The 61-year-old was discovered in the Benson Hotel in Portland, Oregon, in the early hours of Wednesday.

A medical examiner told the Associated Press news agency that his death appeared to be from natural causes, but said there would be an autopsy.

Hendrix died in 1970 and the band’s bassist Noel Redding died in 2003.

Mitchell, from Ealing in west London, had been touring with the Experience Hendrix Tour.

Gone but not forgotten.
