What a fabulous year!! Less postings than ever but that’s because we’ve been rocking out, traveling, working new jobs, hanging out with family, making new friends, seeing old friends and overall,  Weird and Gilly have been “jammin’ good” the entire year.  Thank God for good folks like yourself who pop in and keep us going, we couldn’t do this without you. So, as one eye looks back fondly, the other one is focused on the future and we anticipate a bright and glamorous 2012 – together. Wishing all of you the absolute best year of your lives!!!

Mick Ronson: Bowie’s King Of Glam Guitar

On sale now ~  the July issue of Guitarist Magazine  featuring Mick Ronson on the cover with the tag line: celebrating 40 years.

Charles Shaar Murray has written a fantastic piece that reminds us of  why Mick Ronson is deserving of guitar hero status.

Bonus: glossy Mick Rock photos and praise for The Spider With The Platinum Hair bio (picked as one of the best guitar tomes) makes this issue all the more special. Don’t miss it!

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.
