Piggers and his backup band (with the "new kid") on the cover of Rolling Stone Magazine issue number 101 February 3, 1972. Note Mickey's absence from the photo. If you know the story behind "He's Gone", that's why! Short version: Mickey's dad was the band's manager for a while until he split with their bread causing Mickey some embarassment, so he left for a while. He returned for the second set on the last day they played Winterland on October 20, 1974. Go watch the movie!
