Hi and welcome to the official Micky Gee blog.
Many people mistakenly refer to Micky as “Mickey”. Take it from me, he preferred to be called Micky – Period!!! , even though on many websites, album covers and newspaper articles he was referred to as Mickey.
You will, however, sometimes see his name spelt as Mickey on this website. This is because lots of people still remember him as Mickey and that’s OK by me. I just wanted to put the record straight!
Micky was born on 03 July 1944 and was christened Michael Richard Gee. His place of birth was – 13 Garth Street Cardiff and he passed away at the University Hospital of Wales on the 21 January 2009.
