Son of MAN play a mixture of MAN classics and original material
from their debut album, released on Cherry Red/Esoteric Recordings in Winter
When Bob Richards and George Jones left MAN in 2008 they decided they would continue to play the bands music, with George Jones's father Micky Jones being the founding member they saw it only right that he continued the family legacy.
"One of the last things my father ever said to me
was, it’s up to you now to keep my music alive, I loved the music
of MAN and Micky was a huge influence musically, there was no question about
When Micky Jones passed on in 2010, George Jones organised a memorial concert for him and put together a group of musicians from other well known Welsh bands including Sassafras and Tigertailz.
Featuring former members of MAN and Sassafras,
playing original music along
with the music of founding MAN member Micky Jones.
SON OF MAN celebrates both Wales’s greatest prog rock and psychedelic band MAN and their enduring legacy, when George Jones (son of the late great Man guitarist Micky Jones) and fellow man drummer Bob Richards team up with an all star band to keep the MAN musical dynasty alive.
The full band line-up is as follows:
George Jones - Guitar/Vocals (Man)
Bob Richards - Drums/Vocals (MAN, ASIA, Graham Bonnet, Shy)
Richie Galloni - Vocals (Sassafras)
Ray Jones - Bass/Vocals (Sassafras)
Marco James - Keys/Vocals (Sassafras)
Glenn Quinn - Guitar/Vocals (Tigertailz)
Long time fans can expect the best of Man including C’Mon, Bananas, Call Down the Moon, Spunk Rock, Back Together Again and Don’t Go Away, which was never actually played live by Man.
Then there’s the San Francisco influenced West Coast favourites like Babe I’m Gonna Leave You and Talk About A Morning from the days when Man toured with Quicksilver's John Cipollina.
Richie Galloni and Ray Jones’ add an extra layer of harmonies and they round things off with a brilliant version of Neil Young’s Ohio!
