  1. This is a wonderful photograph. I’ve read Mick’s biography, and Ian’s “Diary of a Rock and Roll Star” (yah, I’m a huge fan of both musicians) and this photo sends out huge vibes of their closeness. Little Mick and bigger Ian, walking, chatting, ‘looks like Mick’s about to lean on Ian – tell him a joke, mention a chord change or something like that. This is a very intimate photo of two veteran musicians, moments before they morph into performers. I regret very much never getting to see Ian and Mick, and Ian hasn’t played Toronto for years. Cheers.

  2. My first exposure to Mick Ronson was @ a Ziggy Stardust & the Spiders from Mars concert at the Music Hall in Boston, Sept of 1972…I was going to Berklee College of Music at the time…he was an amazingly expressive guitar pleayer and worked really well with Bowie on stage…ah, those were the days!
