Anyone else here going to this; November 27 at the 100 Club in Oxford Street, London ?
Has to be one of the most inspirational guitarists ever ( well for me anyway !) and he nearly always played a tele.
I know the Animals are playing along with Wilko, I guess there'll be some one playing the Pirate's stuff.

Jeez, I wish. It'd be pretty difficult for me to convince the wife that we needed to fly to London for one night!

Yeah, I heard about this gig. I'm stuck in the USA.....
I hope everyone has a great time and they get some money to help with Mick's medical bills.

Man, do I wish! A major influence on me since I was a teenager. Between WHFS and a gig at the Cellar Door, The Pirates got plenty of props around the D.C. area roots rock community. I got to meet him once too. Nice humble guy. The world's a little smaller without him.

Thanks for the info. I hadn't heard about it but I'll try to get along.
I saw The Pirates in 1977, and 're-discovering' them a few years a go made me want to take learning the guitar more seriously, so I got a Tele.
A great player, and it will be a nice way to remember him.

Wish I could be there. Whoever's going, have a pint for me in Mick Green's honour...

I've tried to get 2 for some friends who want to come but with no luck.
If anyone has any spares or knows anyway of geting hold of some please let me know !!!

Great guitar player! One of the first proper gigs I went to was the Pirates back in 77. Recently bought a 2CD set of original Johnny Kidd stuff. Mick was playing some amazing stuff back then, too - and wow, can Johnny Kidd sing!
