Experience Hendrix and the Hendrix family are saddened to learn of the passing of legendary keyboardist and session musician Mike Finnigan who passed away yesterday at the age of 76.

For more than 50 years Mike has been involved in the music industry and recorded or toured with the likes of Jimi Hendrix, Peter Frampton, Cher, Ringo Starr, David Coverdale, Bonnie Raitt, Etta James, Joe Cocker, Steve Winwood; Crosby, Stills & Nash among a host of others.

We’ll always cherish the time that we were able to spend with Mike while he was involved in the filming some of our Jimi Hendrix documentaries, including 1997’s “… At Last The Beginning: The Making Of Electric Ladyland.” In this accompanying clip, Mike details the recording process and his keyboard accompaniments for the songs “Rainy Day, Dream Away” and “Still Raining, Still Dreaming.”

Fly on sweet angel.
