I first heard Man at Trinity College Carmarthen in 1969 and realised immediately that they were special.Bought "Revelation" and "2 ozs" and could not stop playing the incredible Greasy Truckers live" Spunk Rock"- which i still think is the finest rock track of all time.Over the next 40 years l have been privileged to attend many Mangigs throughout Britain but particularly remember sharing a pint with Micky at "The Marquee" (in 1983 i think)when we had a gret pre- gig chat.Micky was so genuine and made me feel like i'd known him for years.
So.farewell to a very fine musician and to a very nice human being.You and the band truly enriched my life.Thank you.
Gone but what a legacy!

I have a signed photo of MJ.
It is in the sleeve of my Maximum Darkness LP.
I am going to frame it and hang it on my wall. Love and respect. PM

Very sad to hear this news.  My sincere thoughts with George and the family.
I was privileged to see Mickey perform at our local pub several times in the Forest of Dean in the 80?s during my teen years in the "non Man era".
He went under the pseudonym of ?Pete Brady? and we didn?t have a clue who he was except he was just an incredible guitar player.
Later on I discovered Man and went on to see them many times through the 90?s and beyond.
I had the pleasure of talking to him once or twice at gigs and he was a perfect gentleman.  I?ll never forget the anticipation of waiting for the sublime C?mon intro.
We were born in the same town ? if I had 1% of his talent I?d be a very happy guitar player indeed.
I?ll be getting the CD collection out this weekend......

Listening now - the 'sponsors announcement' is worth the price of admission before we get to the music  ;D

So upsetting to have heard the sad news about Micky's death. A heartfelt message of condolence to all his family and close friends, from myself, my partner Kim and brother Andrew.
The man from Merthyr produced some of the most inventive, soulful music ever and was a really nice chap into the bargain.
He's definitely going to appear frequently, guitar in hand, brightening up the corridors of my memory.
Micky ....... thank you very nice.

Many, many thanks Ron S. Listening to C?mon right now. Staggeringly beautiful. Micky?s guitar and voice tops the lot. His voice was always way up there. George sings like his Dad.

a few comments over at steve hoffman forums http://www.stevehoffman.tv/forums/showthread.php?t=210634

thanks for all the comments about the radio show. I could have easily dedicated all three hours... There were a few other things I really wanted to play
