    Great guitarist, cut down far too early. Great video, thanks for sharing.

    I've posted this a couple of times. Lovely guy - humble and gentlemanly.

    Great guitarist....

    ... AND arranger (the bit everyone forgets)!

    + nice LPB Tele.

    Just saw ( and heard) Mick in bits and pieces all over the Bob Dylan Rolling Thunder Review film.
    Most of the music you hear is presented from an onstage POV, which is very cool, lively...
    I don't think Mick was given much ( or any!) direction; just play what he thinks fits, and it sure sounds like him!

    At thirty seconds into the clip he says, "all of it was played on a Les Paul." So, he's holding a Telecaster and confessing his sound came from an LP. :eek:
