Mick Ronson Quick History in Hull

httpv://www.youtube.com/watch?v=plu57BXv-PE

Thanks to our Facebook friends Mick Ronson Legacy we stumbled across this video gem created by Sean Wilson and Andrew Hampel and we think it’s amazing!  Well done guys. Apparently the duo will be performing a Mick Ronson puppet show and more at the Hull History Centre on saturday 10th July 11am and 3pm at the Humbermouth Festival.
Check with the Centre to confirm details prior to the show.

The Madness Of The Thin White Duke

July is obviously the month to invest in all your favorite (British) music magazines. Don’t miss the July issue of UNCUT featuring David Bowie on the cover.

This issue promises the scoop on the cocaine, paranoia and the madness of the Thin White Duke.  Here you’ll find the inside story of Station To Station as told by the Dame’s key players. On stands now.

Down ‘N’ Outz: My Re Generation

Available exclusively with Classic Rock magazine  on the 23rd June.  General release with bonus tracks to follow on the 13th of July.

Sometimes the most interesting projects arise from the most unusual circumstances. So it is that the Down ‘N’ Outz is a project fronted by Def Leppard’s Joe Elliott, backed by The Quireboys and playing rare tracks connected only by Mott The Hoople. Read the rest of this entry »

Cleveland to Heaven and Heaven to Hull

On the 30th of May we celebrated Mick Ronson’s birthday at the Beachland Tavern with a very special brunch menu, fantastic music and a great group of folks. Fans from the UK, Toronto and Colorado were in attendance and the locals enjoyed it too. Hosts Randy, Brenda and Judy supplied the t-shirts and pins while Irena (huge Ronson fan from Russia) created a fab Mick Ronson crossword puzzle that kept the room buzzing with trivia. Between the  prizes and the Pleasure Man (Hey Ma Get Papa) Margaritas every fan left smiling.  The same can be said for the weekend up in Hull that followed on the 5th and 6th of June.  All reports thus far have been good  and as pictures and comments continue to come in we’re archiving them here for future use in the gallery. Stay tuned.
