Mitch Mitchell, the British drummer in the seminal 1960s band the Jimi Hendrix Experience, has been found dead in his US hotel room, authorities say.
Mitchell, 61, was found dead in the Benson Hotel in Portland, Oregon, in the early hours of Wednesday.
A medical examiner told Associated Press news agency the death appeared to be natural causes but that there would be an autopsy.
Jimi Hendrix died in 1970 and the band's bassist Noel Redding in 2003.
Mitchell had been touring with the Experience Hendrix Tour.
