Mitchell’s Ludwig drum kit.<br />
<br />
An enormous collection of items belonging to the late drummer Mitch Mitchell has emerged for sale.<br />
<br />
The star, who died at the age of 67 in 2008, was best known for his work with Jimmy Hendrix Experience between 1966 and 1970.<br />
<br />
Now his family have decided to sell a large amount of his personal items as they feel they can no longer handle the responsibility and want to see them go to a good home.<br />
<br />
The collection is made up of countless instruments, shirts, posters and documents - many of which are previously unseen.<br />
<br />
The items offer a gateway to a different time with some incredibly outlandish and psychedelic lots perfectly encapsulating London in the 60s.<br />
<br />
Among them is a multi coloured, patchwork shaggy coat which Mitchell would often wear to parties.<br />
<br />
The coat hangs below the waist and looks more like a rug from Austin Powers front room than a sophisticated dinner jacket.
