Better late than never. Meant to post this earlier. Mitch died last Nov.

He was a perfect match for the musical storm that was The Experience. Was lucky enough to see them three times when I was still green, after which I realized I had a long way to go in my playing. They're all gone now - what a powerhouse blast of creativity and imagination. It all happened in a flash. Sometimes I think it was only a dream. Jimi was gone way too soon. Unfortunately no one can take his place. Fortunately we have their recordings.

Here's an obit:

For those of you who are interested, Jimi recorded a studio version of The Star Spanged Banner where he played all the tracks himself and sounds like a one man orchestra. In the following link, you hear the first 25 sec of the that version when it first opens:
