Mickey Jones - 1965
(click on the image to see an enlargement)
My dear friend and brother, Mickey, a bigger than life character, left us too soon.

His career as a drummer had him backing up my act starting in 1965. He can be heard on "Secret Agent Man", "7th Son", and many others. He had previously worked closely with Trini Lopez. He continued as a drummer, working with Bob Dylan on his 1966 world tour as well as Kenny Rogers and The First Edition before concentrating on what became a spectacular acting career.

I'll miss Buddy Holly, Elvis, Ricky Nelson,
and Sam Cooke.
I'll miss Jerry Butler, Curtis Mayfield,
Carl Perkins and Frank Sinatra.
I'll miss Marvin Gaye, Glenn Frey,
B.B. King, and Tom Petty.
I'll miss Fats Domino, Little Richard,
The Beatles, Chuck Berry, and the Rolling Stones,
But most of all, when shadows fall,
I'll miss my buddy,
Mickey Jones

I have a lot more to include about my friend, Mickey, so...
more to come soon.
