An "Experience(d)" Good-Bye

Mitch Mitchell, the remaining member of the Jimi Hendrix Experience trio, died early this morning in Oregon. He was 61. Mitch played the drums for the trio and the group had an excellent, unique sound.

Bassist Noel Redding died in 2003 and Jimi, of course, died in 1970.

They will all be missed.

I did hear about Richard Wright from Pink Floyd dying several weeks ago. I didn't even know that he has been sick. He was younger than Mitch was, by about 10years, I think.

It is sad to be losing these great musicians; but we have been losing them for years, you'd think we'd be used to it huh? At least we will always have their music on cds or digitally on mp3 players.
