Michael Vernon Greenwood was born under Share The Load - Mick Greenwood - .To Friends sign of Aquarius in the front room of the family home in Potters Bar, England.
A month before his 12th birthday, he emigrated with his family from the leafy London suburb of Thames Ditton to the small rural town of Halifax, Pennsylvania, situated twenty miles up the Susquehannah River from Harrisburg. He found the transition from his regimented life at a boys English prep school to American high school liberating in more ways than one. Predominately self-taught, Mick found an affinity with the piano at Share The Load - Mick Greenwood - .To Friends 4 years old, and at 14 got what he wanted for his birthday, a Kent electric guitar with a Sears Roebuck amp.
After an initial disappointing cacophony, the guitar stayed in its case until Mick broke his right wrist on the wrestling mat at school. Wearing a cast, but still able to hold a pick between his thumb and index finger, he decided it was time to pick up the guitar and teach himself a few basics, and with practice he then started writing songs, and later formed his first high school band, The DearSirs.
The sessions went so well that the musicians involved became his backing band Hategana - Broln* - Hrají Sólisté Broln (Members Of Broln Present Themselves) the road.
After appearing with the band on programs like The Old Grey Whistle Test, and performing solo at venues such as the Cambridge Festival, there were some personnel changes, and The Cockington All-Stars emerged. The record also features excellent backing vocals by Barrie St. John, Doris Troy and Jimmy Helms. Running late, we all poured out of the limo and went straight on stage, following a set by John McLaughlin.
I was returning with my band to play my graduating class at Dickinson, and the reception was blinding. Posted by Marios at PM. Newer Post Older Post Home.
