TOURS

Though Mick has been on many tours over the years, we were able to aquire some fantastic photos from Mick and the crew of their UK / Euro Tour and will be adding info and new pic's as we get them.

The International convention center in Frankfurt Germany hosts the Musik Messe in March each year, which is the European equivalent of the NAMM show in Anaheim. There is more of an International flavor at the Musik Messe as it is quite often easier for Europeans and members of the UK to attend, mostly due to it's proximity. During the Messe, Mick and crew met with endorsers and ran into quite a few friends as well. "The underground mall is a must see"!

Ever since the Abbey Road album, Many a Rock 'n' Roll musician has dreamed of walking across the famed road in London. Mick and Sean Michael Radford could not resist. Photo courtesy of Cody Farrell.

In the Hard Rock Cafe vault in London, Mick had the chance to peruse lots of legendary guitars...this one caught his fancy. A 1954 Fender Strat that belonged to Duane Allman. Get this!...serial number 00017.

The crew decided to take the ferry boat from England to Le Port De Calais, France. One reason was so everyone could get a look at the white Cliffs of Dover. However, by the time all the gear was loaded and all were aboard, it was too dark to see anything but Mick's hat.

While Mick was in London he was invited to check out the first Hard Rock Cafe and the Celebrity vault, housing a rare collection of guitars and memorabilia. A musician named Jimmi James Mars was the tour guide for the Vault. During his routine he began to ask everyone who they were and where they were from. When he got to Mick, he discovered he and Mick had both worked with Tommy Boyce, from the songwriting team Tommy Boyce and Bobby Hart, tunesmiths for the Monkees and others. They had a jolly good time yakin' about the day.

Even though the front of Royal Albert Hall (above) was under construction, there was no way Mick was escaping without this shot.
