RIP Mitch Mitchell

Mitch Mitchell, the last surviving member of Jimi Hendrix Experience, was found dead today in his hotel room.  He apparently died of natural causes.  After Jimi Hendrix’s death, and the subsequent death of Bass player Noel Redding in 2003, Mitchell continued to tour regularly as part of the Experience Hendrix Tour.  He was 61 years old.

    Damn. The Experience Hendrix tribute tour played here just before going to Portland. I wasn’t able to make it. I don’t know if MM was well enough to appear at that show. But I did see the show that started the ongoing tour, a Hendrix tribute at Bumbershoot about 15 years ago. In the rain, naturally. I don’t even know if MM was at that show. Damn.


    “Hendrix died after a drug overdose in 1970. Redding was 57 when he died in 2003.”

    Damn. The Jimi Hendrix Experience is no longer with us.
