I posted links to the ski films the other day. They seem to have taken a liking to his little bit of Micky Jones and used it again on Tuesday http://bridgerbowl.com/mediagallery/dailyvideo/2010/03/09/ It's a fitting tribute that the film makers, who haven't a clue who Micky was, heard something special....

Thank you Micky for the special concert memories and truly great times,you put me under a spell on every occasion i saw you play and i  have sorely missed your abscence and always will...... I am not ashamed to say i shed a tear watching that WDR concert footage again today 3 mins into 7171-551 when Micky hit those strings,man he just made the hairs on the back of my neck stand up and put me in a cosmic trance......   You can keep your Clapton's and your Beck's amongst others..... MJ was just awesome.  My condolences to George and the Jones family at this time..

Been away on business, and shocked to find this news waiting on my return. My thoughts are with George and his family at this sad time.

Best wishes to you and yours, George. When I lost my old man one of the things that got me through was knowing he was proud of me as his son, something I know Mickey was by the bucketload for you.

Dads funeral will be at All saints Church Mumbles on Thursday 18th March @ 10:30am.

The Wake will be at the Club 88-89 Woodfield Street in Morriston afterwards.

If you knew Dad, and want to pay your respects, you are most welcome.

Thank you all for your messages, I am stunned!

George  :) ;) :D ;D :'(

OMG I am so sad about this news. I have cried today. The Man Band and especially Micky Jones were an intrigral part of my path of self discovery. I tripped so hard to the complex slashing guitar riffs that Micky spit out, like some angel from beyond the dells of my deepest imaginings. My warmest wishes of condolence to the entire Jones family, and sympathy for the many fans of this legendary guitar virtuoso.

One of the people paying tribute to Micky on the Hawkwind forum suggested someone pass on that forum's best wishes.

This I now do: http://hawkwindforum.freeforums.org/rip-micky-jones-ex-man-t2622.html

George. Your dad was easily my favourite musician of all time and will remain so. I will never forget him. My deepest sympathies to you and yours.

I know I've already posted but I was walking through town this afternoon listening to BGTYALWAD  on the iPod and a van drove past with "George Jones" written all over it.
I nearly broke down there and then.
Really wish I could be there to pay last respects in body but my spirit  is already.
