Another Immortal:

Between Isaac (August 10, 2008) and Ron (January 6, 2009):
Mitch Mitchell (November 12, 2008).

"His last days were spent celebrating Hendrix's music on the 2008 Experience Hendrix Tour. For nearly four weeks the tour travelled coast to coast in an 18-city tour in the US, finishing in Portland.[4] The tour also featured Buddy Guy, Jonny Lang, Kenny Wayne Shepherd, Eric Johnson, Cesar Rosas, David Hidalgo, Aerosmith's Brad Whitford, Hubert Sumlin, Chris Layton as well as Eric Gales and Mato Nanji. Five days after the tour ended Mitchell was found dead at about 3am on November 12, in his room at the Benson Hotel in downtown Portland.[5] Following medical tests, it was revealed by the Multnomah County Medical Examiner's Office that Mitchell had died in his sleep of natural causes. [6] [7] He was the last surviving member of the original Experience. Mitchell had planned to leave Portland that day to return to his home in England."
