NEWS RELEASE — Despite the fact that Dee Mitchell, widow of legendary Jimi Hendrix Experience drummer Mitch Mitchell, has pointed out that unscrupulous parties have attempted to sell bogus items and drum kits as having belonged to and played by her late husband, the practice has cropped up again.


"The deplorable practice of auctioning 'Mitch Mitchell' drum sets which he supposedly played while with Jimi Hendrix seems to be ongoing," she noted. "All of the drums Mitch played with Hendrix and later are accounted for and not up for sale. We hope that anybody who might be interested in buying one of these kits will take warning and not fall for this artifice."
