I hope it ain't true but I heard that he passed away....

If true, then it is the end of an era.

When I die, I want to go peacefully in my sleep like my grandfather, not screaming......
like the passengers in his car.

Seems it is true - Reuters: Mitch Mitchell dies age 62

Indeed the end of an era - there are now no surviving members of the original Jimi Hendrix Experience.

RIP Mitch.

I hardly recognized him the last interview I saw.....geez he looked old, but Noel Redding I could spot instantly.

I didn't know Noel croaked too...in 2003..........sad times....

Shame. Two Hendrix drummers gone within a year of each other. RIP.

that was Mitch at Woodstock. I learned of his passing yesterday. last night I played my Hendrix records. his drumming was amazing. who else could play with the maniac Hendrix? another loss that will be missed. he was a real experience.

He played at Woodstock and also he was interviewed for the DVD. A track contains a documentary on the concert Mitchell and other musicians and organizers speak about the concert.
