I met Mick way back in the early 80's in Liverpool. He was working with one of Liverpools finest bands the Icicle Works. Mick was looking after the Backline equipment and doing the sound for the band. Mick went on to become Chris Sharrock's personal drum tech. Who ever Chris would play for Mick was always there setting up Chris's drum kit and keeping a watchfull eye on the equipment throughout the gig's or in the recording studios. If drum skins needed changing and problems would arise with Chris's drum kit Mick was always on hand to sort it out. I am a fim believer in the fact that if you do a great job for who ever your working with then your name will be passed around to musicians and bands on the Live music circuit. Mick at this moment in time is currently on a World Tour with Robbie Williams and his band.
This will hopfully give you an idea at how successfull Mick has become over the many years on the road. Mick is well respected by his colleagues and the musicians he works for. Just to give you an idea of the people Mick has worked for over the years reads like a who's who in the business here are just some of the bands
