Words about music (505): Mitch Mitchell

I don't look around me and think that every thing that has happened in my life has happened because of one person. Obviously Hendrix was a pretty supernatural person. I can't say that things wouldn't have happened had it not been for Hendrix. I learned certain things, he taught me an awful lot about music I was not aware of mainly 'de blues' man. Maybe I turned him on to a few things. Noel turned him on to rock and roll. All I've got to judge this by is that, for instance, he went and played with Roland Kirk at Ronnie Scott's and Roland Kirk had been the monkey's arm-pit as far as Hendrix was concerned.
