Janie Hendrix hails drummer's role in 'shaping' brother's sound
Janie Hendrix is also the chief executive of the Experience Hendrix Tour, which the rock legend had been on just prior to his death. She was full of praise for Mitchell, who apparently passed away due to natural causes.
“He was a wonderful man, a brilliant musician and a true friend,” she told AP. “His role in shaping the sound of The Jimi Hendrix Experience cannot be underestimated.”
