John Ronald Mitch Mitchell was an English drummer who was best known for his work in the Jimi Hendrix Experience.
Biography,Early daysMitchell was born in Ealing, Middlesex to Phyliss C (nee Preston) and Thomas J Mitchell.As a teenager, he starred in a childrens television programme, Jennings and Derbyshire, and starred in a leading role in the 1960 British film Bottoms Up with Jimmy Edwards. Mitchell became a musician through working at Jim Marshalls drum shop on Saturdays while still at school. Early in his career, he gained considerable musical experience as a touring and session musician, working with Pete Nelson and the Travellers, Frankie Reid and the Casuals (1962), Johnny Harris and the Shades, the Pretty Things, Bill Knight & the Sceptres, the Riot Squad, and the Who as a session drummer while the band was in the process of replacing Doug Sandom with Keith Moon. In 1965, he also replaced temporarily Viv Prince as drummer in the Pretty Things.Georgie Fame and the Blue FlamesFrom December 1965 until October 1966, Mitchell was the drummer of Georgie Fame and the Blue Flames, appearing on their 1966 album, Sweet Things. In a 2015 interview, Fame recalled, His main hero was jazz drummer Ronnie Stephenson and if you look at early film clips of Mitch, he had that Ronnie Stephenson look, the way he set his jaw. And he loved crashing around on the cymbals like Ronnie, but in my band I liked the arrangements pretty tight. When he started splashing around Id say, Just play the hi-hat!The Jimi Hendrix ExperienceMitchell auditioned for Hendrixs band in October 1966, edging out drummer Aynsley Dunbar on the flip of a coin. Mitchells fast, driving, jazz influenced playing meshed well with Hendrixs open-ended, revolutionary approach to the electric guitar. Some highly praised examples of his collaboration with Hendrix include the songs Manic Depression, Stepping Stone, Little Miss Strange, Fire, Third Stone from the Sun, and Hendrixs signature Voodoo Chile (Slight Return).Mitchell came from a jazz background, and like many of his contemporaries in the London scene, was influenced by Elvin Jones, Max Roach, and Joe Morello. He played in Hendrixs Experience trio from October 1966 to mid-1969, in the Woodstock band, (August 1969), and in the 1970 Experience version with Billy Cox on bass, known posthumously as the Cry of Love band.Notable projectsIn December 1968, Mitchell played with The Dirty Mac, an all-star band assembled for The Rolling Stones Rock and Roll Circus. Others included John Lennon as vocalist and rhythm guitarist Winston Leg-Thigh, Yoko Ono providing improvised primal screams, Eric Clapton as guitarist, and Keith Richards as bassist. The group recorded a cover of Yer Blues as well as a jam called Whole Lotta Yoko. While working with the Band of Gypsys from late 1969 until early 1970, Mitchell also collaborated with the Jack Bruce and Friends band along with ex-Cream bassist/vocalist Jack Bruce, keyboardist Mike Mandel and jazz-fusion guitarist and future The Eleventh House frontman Larry Coryell. Mitchell also took part in Miles Davis demo sessions for the 1969 album Bitches Brew, but did not appear on the final album.Post ExperienceAfter Hendrixs death, Mitchell finished production work with engineer Eddie Kramer on incomplete Hendrix recordings, resulting in the releases The Cry of Love and Rainbow Bridge. In 1972, he teamed up with guitarists Mike Pinera and April Lawton to form Ramatam. They recorded the first of Ramatams two albums and were Emerson, Lake & Palmers opening act at a number of concerts. Mitchell and Hendrix had been offered spots in the band Keith Emerson and Greg Lake were forming, but Carl Palmer got the drum position instead. Ramatam never achieved commercial success and Mitchell left the act before their second LP was released. Mitchell also performed in concerts with Terry Reid, Jack Bruce, and Jeff Beck as a substitute for drummer Cozy Powell.Mitchell drummed alongside John Halsey in the 1970s jam band, Hinkleys Heroes, the only time he played alongside another drummer. Michael Jeffery, Hendrixs manager, relegated Mitchell and Noel Redding to paid employees without an ownership share in future revenues. This limited their earnings and led to Mitchell and Redding being largely excluded from sharing in revenues generated from the Experience. Financial hardship pressured Mitchell in the mid-1970s to sell a prized Hendrix guitar. He also sold his small legal claim to future Hendrix record sales for about $200,000. In 1974, he auditioned for Paul McCartneys band Wings but lost the part to Geoff Britton in another coin toss.For the rest of the 1970s through to the 1990s, Mitchell, semi-retired and living in Europe, continued to perform and occasionally record. In 1986, Mitchell teamed up with jazz musician Greg Parker and made a music video session of Led Zeppelins Black Dog. He did session work on Junior Browns Long Walk Back album and participated in various Hendrix-related recordings, videos, and interviews. In 1999, Mitchell was part of the Gypsy Sun Experience, along with former Hendrix bassist Billy Cox and guitarist Gary Serkin. He also appeared on Bruce Camerons album Midnight Daydream that included Billy Cox, Buddy Miles and Jack Bruce.DeathHe spent his final days celebrating Hendrixs music on the 2008 Experience Hendrix Tour. For nearly four weeks the tour travelled on an 18-city tour of the US, finishing in Portland, Oregon. The tour also featured Billy Cox, Buddy Guy, Jonny Lang, Robby Krieger, Kenny Wayne Shepherd, Eric Johnson, Cesar Rosas, David Hidalgo, Aerosmiths Brad Whitford, Hubert Sumlin, Chris Layton, Eric Gales, and Mato Nanji. Five days after the tour ended Mitchell died in his sleep on 12 November, in his room at the Benson Hotel in Portland of natural causes. Mitchell had been in ill health for many years due to alcohol-related problems. He was the last surviving member of the original Experience. Mitchell had planned to leave Portland that day to return to his home in England. He was buried in Seattle.He is survived by his wife, Dee, a daughter and two grandchildren.
