A Tribute to Micky from Lyndon Needs

Mickey Playing
Mickey Gee
I just want to mention sad news of the death of one of my guitar heroes, Mickey Gee. I rated him as the best rockabilly/rock’n’roll guitar player since the fifties.

Towards end of his life, I had opportunity to watch Mickey playing a couple of times in a small pub in Nwport, South Wales with his three-piece band, The Sneakers. Although he wasn’t in good health, he picked up his Fender Telecaster, plugged it into his amp (no effects!) and Wow! I was just mesmorized by the sound and his brilliant playing technique.
Miss you, Mickey.
