Gone But Not Forgotten – Electrifying Guitar Hero MICK RONSON (1946-1993)

Great artists from the past

12 February 2023

Highly praised and outstanding guitar hero (although he didn’t think of himself
like that) MICK RONSON was born in 1993 in Kingston upon Hull, Yorkshire, England

He was a lot more than just the guitarist for Ziggy Stardust and his Spiders Of Mars.
He toured with Bob Dylan, played with Mott The Hoople, worked with Lou Reed, and produced an impressive number of albums. He also made 6 solo albums. He passed
away in the spring of 1993 at the young age of 46 due to that deadly beast cancer.

David Bowie: “Mick was the perfect foil for the Ziggy character. He was very much a
salt-of-the-earth type, the blunt northerner with a defiantly masculine personality so
that what you got was the old-fashioned Yin and Yang thing.”

Ian Hunter (Mott The Hoople): “I’m entirely different from Mick. He’s schooled musician.
Mick came up the serious way. He was a cello player, I mean he wanted to be a cello player.”

Three great Mick Ronson live moments.
