    RIP. He certainly lived though an interesting "Experience," although I think this graf in the AP story is off just a bit ..

    "Hendrix, Redding and Mitchell held their first rehearsal in October 1996, according to the Hall of Fame's Web site."

    Angels? You're assuming quite a bit for a rocker from the 60s.

    Jeez Hondo, go listen to the New Christy Minstrels somewhere else.

    Next to Moon, Mitchell was one of the most innovative drummers of his time.

    Interesting bit of trivia, according to the linked AP story:

    Hendrix, Redding and Mitchell held their first rehearsal in October 1996...

    Who'da figured?

    Well yes indeed! I most certainly did.
  11. I recommend the BBC Sessions set for a good sense of what Mr. Mitchell was about.
