I also hate his singing. Little Miss Strange and She's So Fine shouldn't even be on the records they're on, he doesn't need a vocal track God damnit.


yeah, i find both of those tracks quite cheesy really. they suck.

I must admit I don't quite get the machine gun thang. Why is it such a good example of his playing?

"Woke Up This Morning and Found Myself Dead" = awesome.

Jim Morrison makes the whole album just gold.

of course most of his stuff is amazing, but have you heard the song??? it is "11" minutes of greatness, and Band of Gypsys are better musicians

Speaking of Machine Gun...I just got done listening to the 1969-12-31 early show version (Band of Gypsys was taken from the early and late shows on 1969-12-31 and 1970-01-01) and I have to say, it is pretty bad in comparison to the officially released version (from whatever of the three other shows that was taken from). Not to say that it's a bad version overall, it just doesn't even compare to the one

I dunno what his best live performance is. Woodstock had so much feeling in it but like he already was a big name he had nothing to prove. Fillmore East was cool and all the ones with Buddy Miles were awesome but how can you beat Monterey. He played like he had something to prove and he definately succeeded

Now I wouldn't say that...Buddy Miles was a good drummer, but Mitch Mitchell was way more innovative IMO. And Billy Cox was just an average bassist, if it wasn't for him being friends with Jimi in army days, he wouldnt have gotten anywhere. But Cox was more dedicated than Redding was without a doubt.

I don't really think its right to pick apart people's playing like that. It's an OPINION.

Personally, Mitch Mitchell is one of my favorite drummers... I like him far better than Keith Moon as far as style goes.

Listen to his playing on Third Stone From The Sun, Voodoo Chile, Manic Depression... come on, he rocks the hell out of those songs.

He seems like he would also suit well as a Jazz drummer!

I find his drumming a bit all over the place TBH, theres too many crash cymbols everywhere. I prefer someone like John Bonham who has the groove but keeps it simpler.

Yeah I know what you mean, he'd suit that genre, he reminds me of Chad Smith kind of a human metronome.

as much as i love Bonham, hes my favorite drummer, he could never capture such a subtle and almost caressing sounds that Mitchell could with those crash symbols like on wind cries Mary, but even his awesome heavy drumming is really tight like on the live version of fire from live at woodstock.
#139
yeah it's just.. somehow messy and all over the place. But fair enough Bonham couldn't do that gentle jazzy thang that Mitchell does.

Mitch has some amazing drum on Third Stones from the Sun, Fire, and Manic Depression.

As far as Rock drummers go, he's probably my favorite along with Ian Paice, John Bonham, Ginger Baker, and Terry Bozzio.
#141
I hate to say it but: Mitchell > Bonham

Just a little bit though!

And I don't know what you're talking about, Mitchell carries the groove. Listen to Third Stone From The Sun, for example.

Neither of them were the greatest solo players, they didn't make their solos musical like Baker, at least imo. Let's just say each drummer is the best for their band. Imagine having Mitchell in Zeppelin, it wouldn't work.

^ I dunno, I love John Bonham, he was one of my favorite drummers, and I love Moby Dick, but I just love Mitchell's style, where he incoporporates Jazz into his hard rock drumming. He's simply my favorite drummer!

Kind of like air guitar. You pretend like your drumming with your hands while your listening to a song.

pretty much my thoughts. I can sympathize with people that say he's messy and all over the places.

He's a little like hendrix's equivalent on drums. When you first hear him he sounds messy, but after a while you see through that and it's great.
#153
Mitch Mitchell and Ginger Baker are two of my favourite drummers. Awesome jazz drummers who are able to incorporate that style awesomely into rock.


Of course, out of the two, I like Ginger better, but still.....

Yeah, it's a shame he was kinda in the back seat to Jimi. Jimi's god, but Mitch was really talented.

Poor Noel Redding, people always seem to talk about Jimi (obviously) and Mitch first.
