Mitch Mitchell R.I.P.



Time to give the drummer some. Unfortunately, another one has passed. The great Mitch Mitchell died yesterday. He was the last surviving member of The Jimi Hendrix Experience. I never got around to doing an Earl Palmer memorial - although his drumming shows up here from time to time - and I rarely get a chance to post Hendrix, so that's what we'll listen to today.

Very sad, sixty-one is not really that old these days.

Una gran tragedia. Desde España, un saludo eterno para el baterista más parecido al salvaje ángel azul, que definía al alma de Jimi Hendrix. Toda una maravilla de los sentidos y la generosidad se ha ido al mundo de las maravillas.
