A native of Maryhill, Mick has been gigging since he was a teenager.
In the seventies he was a member of Glasgow rockers The Khyber Trifles who were managed and produced by Wings guitarist Jimmy McCulloch. Following that, Mick went on to release several indie singles with his band, Shady Deal.
Since then he has continued to play in many styles and line ups.
Most recently he was a member of soul band The Floorstompers with Deacon Blue's keyboard maestro Jim Prime.
Always a huge fan of Ronnie Lane, Mick plays guitar, lap steel and bass in Spirit of Slim Chance.
