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

So, 25 years to the day after first seeing/meeting Ian Hunter, our anniversary of that epic event couldn’t of been any more perfect. A line stretched around the Beachland in Cleveland, Ohio as many folks buzzed about hoping to obtain a ticket, some lucked out, others we hear, did not. One thing is for certain, Hunter brings out the old school who rarely leave their house, except for when he’s in town. Read the rest of this entry »

Can you feel it?

It’s here! It’s finally here! The day we’ve been waiting for ~ can you feel it?

RAW POWER Ann Arbor!  Here we come!

The Michigan Theater is small (4000 seats) and this show sold out in minutes. If you’re holding tickets consider yourself quite fortunate and prepare to rock!

If not, raise your glass high, turn up the volume and salute the one and only Ron Asheton from wherever you are.
