Mitch Mitchell

And so the Experience now jams in heaven. (Set list please, dear God.)

He was one of my most favorite rock drummers. Drummerworld pays tribute to the man.

A delightful piece of trivia at the very end of the tribute: "On the night that Jimi died, they had picked up Sly Stone from London airport and were looking for Jimi to participate in a jam." (The "they" in question are: Mitch Mitchell and Ginger Baker.)

A blog on the Telegraph remembers Mitch.
