Mick Hawksworth R.I.P. 28th January 2017.

Phil Little… Absolutely bereft to hear that Mick Hawksworth passed away this morning. Only twelve months ago he was sitting in with Mick Bolton trio at The Hastings Arms. Mick was a fantastic player with an immense pedigree going back to Andromeda who I first heard in 1969 on John Peel’s Top Gear. His grandest years were with Alvin Lee and drummer Tom Compton in Ten Years Later. At the end of the 70’s Mick and I teamed up with Mickey Jones in The Flying Pigs and the picture is from an early gig at The George Canning in Brixton. This is leaving a massive hole in my and many others lives because he was such a great person. For years he ferried me and my drums around in his multi coloured panel Ford Cortina with never once a wince or a moan. God bless you and Rest In Peace my brother.

Kathy & Sheri Berry… What incredibly sad news to have only learnt today of Mick’s passing Still in shock. So many memories flooding around. We think we will always be around to get in touch when we get around to it. Time passes and then it’s too late. So sad too that Mick played at Hastings Arms only recently. Down the road and I missed you dear Mick !! Only we know what we shared.
Deepest sympathy to Mick’s family for your sad loss. An amazing person and talented musician.
With love. Kathy and Sheri Berry xxx.
