When you go to the Racs site, a great old photo of Mitch before you enter. Very cool.

So sad--i didn't hear--sympathy to his friends and family. He was the perfect drummer for Jimi--they were truly locked in to each other musically. Rest in Peace, Queen Bee.

how was he? who did he play with?

He played with everyone...it was kind of an all-star thing. He just sort of kept wandering out and sitting behind his kit throughout the night. Double Trouble were playing too, so he would just join in whenever. He made a very sweet little speech saying how much he appreciated being there. At one point it did occur to me that he looked like he was overexerting himself banging away up there! The whole event didn't seem too organized...seemed some musicians were just wandering on joining in with eachother, until Buddy Guy got up there. I feel so lucky I was there...thanks to hubby for buying the tickets and getting me there! I doubt I would have done it on my own!

It was a very cool thing. It was at the Beacon Theater (where Shine A Light was filmed) and we had great seats. I caught Buddy Guy's pick and gave it to my husband (it says "so funky you can smell it"). Was in front of Robert Randolph a good portion of the night and he was amazing. Hubert Sumlin was classic. Kenny Wayne Shepherd was a show-off (I didn't enjoy him).

sounds great! Buddy Guy's pick--so cool. I just saw Hubert on a DVD "Lightning in a Bottle" along with an all-too-short segment of Buddy Guy. And an even shorter segment of David "Honeyboy" Edwards--90 years old and just played at B.B. King's.

That's a great dvd! My mom actually turned me on to it.

And wasn't David Honeyboy Edwards in Walk Hard?

Okay, we're really :offtopic: . Sorry. :wacko:

yes! that's right, and so was Jack, so we're forgiven. And on the "Lightning" DVD they show a clip of Buddy Guy playing while Jimi looks on, and Jimi's drummer was...on topic.

It makes sense. I think Mitch Mitchell is a really obvious influence on Patrick Keeler. He was an absolutely stunning drummer.

So fucking good.

I think it kind of hit me when I was watching Keeler play (not listening, but watching) that he's kind of a bastard child of Bonham and Mitch Mitchell. He's got the jazz influence from Mitch, but he plays with a force like Bonzo did.

Rest in peace, Mitch.

Yeah, I think Mitchell undoubtedly was a major influence on Keeler. I think I may remember a time when Patrick said how much he liked Jimi Hendrix Experience too.
