“Following the Bad Company UK tour that wound up last Saturday at London’s 02 Arena the family and representatives of the band’s co-founder, guitarist and songwriter Mick Ralphs are sad to announce that Mick has suffered a stroke.
“Mick is receiving excellent medical care and is recovering in hospital, although all his public engagements are necessarily on hold, pending his improvement.
“Everyone is wishing Mick a speedy recovery, and further news will be announced at the appropriate time. “
I wonder if T2 will be as big a disappointment as the original Trainspotting was to the railway enthusiast.
Blimey, very sad news indeed…..one of the first albums I ever bought as a teenager in the early 70’s was Mad Shadows by Mott the Hoople, featuring Mick on guitar…..
