Jimi Hendrix Experience

Died: 2008-11-12
Age: 61
Cause: Natural Causes

John ‘Mitch’ Mitchell, drummer and last surviving member of the Jimi Hendrix Experience, has died. Mitch Mitchell was still touring with the Experience Hendrix tribute tour when he was found dead in his hotel room in Oregon, USA. The 61-year-old is believed to have died from natural causes. Mitch Mitchell performed in LA two weeks earlier and appeared happy and healthy. He had planned to stay in Portland for a four-day holiday, said Bob Merlis, a spokesman for the Experience Hendrix tour. Just a month earlier he told the Boston Herald that he continued to play and tour with the Hendrix tribute tour because: “I’m also one of those really lucky people that still loves playing drums.”
