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.
