Mick Green

One of the great British guitarists died a few days ago. Mick Green played with Johnny Kidd and the Pirates, then the Pirates after Kidd died. Wilko Johnson always acknowledged the influence of Green's playing. Here's the Pirates with Lonesome Train, from 1977.

Obit in the Jewish Chronicle makes more of Green's later work with Van Morrison.
