Product description

About the Author

Mike Wade is also an Old Rock’n’Roller from Southend. He played drums in a number of local bands, ending up in Wolfe, who recorded an album and singles for Motown, before spending several years as a session drummer and singer. In this guise he appeared on hundreds of tracks - almost all unheard, made many advertising jingles - all long forgotten, and played live at the country’s major venues, right up to several appearances at the Albert Hall - although nobody noticed, other than his mum. Music and photography are his passions, (he took the pictures for the sleeve of Mickey’s Living Legend album), although advertising has been his “real job” since he reluctantly accepted that music was not to be what he did for a living. While he has started writing many books in the past, this is the first full-length one he has actually completed (or at least if you are reading this, it will be). As someone who participated in more or less the same musical era as Mickey - performing in many of the same places around the same time - he has always thought that it would be worthwhile for someone to chronicle the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth about the legend of Mickey Jupp. Since first seeing Mickey lead The Orioles at the Cricketers in the sixties he has been an avid fan of the great man, owning every record he ever released and one or two he didn’t, so writing this book has been a labour of love; an opportunity to set down in one place the remarkable story of this important musician’s extraordinary talent.
