Mick Ronson Remembered 1946 – 1993

Ronno Remembered

Mick Ronson is remembered today and always.

24 years after his passing; his songs, his music and his spirit lives on. He left his immeasurable impact on each and every one of us. Today, we hope you celebrate him. Play some guitar, play his music and play nice. Be kind to each other and above all Play…Don’t Worry.

Until now, you’ve only seen this photo in black and white, published in The Spider With The Platinum Hair. Today we colour the world, colour you – colour me.

We love you Mick.

May 26, 1946 – April 29, 1993

Mick Ronson The Spider With The Platinum Hair Book 2017

TSWTPH 2017

The Mick Ronson biography ‘The Spider With The Platinum Hair’ will re-launch on April 6th, 2017 via John Blake Books.

Now, in its third printing this reissue  arrives with a brand new gorgeous cover and a few additional pages. This update picks up where the story left off in 2009 and brings the reader right back to Hull where currently celebrations are in the works to commemorate its favorite musical, native son: RONNO.

Shortly after John Blake Books bought out our former publisher, TSWTPH received a big digital nod getting issued as an eBook for the very first time. Clearly, this allows the Ronson story to reach more people worldwide and we couldn’t be happier about that.

In the wake of David Bowie’s passing, the revival of vinyl records and the recent activities of his family, peers and hometown, it’s as if there’s a renewed interest in Ronson and frankly, its due time.

We are deeply honored that people still care about this little book and we’re more proud of it today than ever. God bless The Spider With The Platinum Hair – we truly hope that you enjoy this new edition.

A USA release is scheduled for October 1st 2017!
