I'm searching for a name of the band that MIckey played in with Merle Saunders, Jim Mc pherson and Bobby Vega in the 80's. Any help will be greatly appreciated.
The last time I saw Mickey was at the Flynn in Burlington, Vt. He put on the absolute best show. Probably the best of his that I've ever been to. 5-6 years ago? Anybody there?
Hey- I'm all for it. God bless you and keep you in his protective hands Christine Stevens. We need a paradigm shift, and I can't think of a better way to do it!
BTW- Whatever happened to The Rhythm Devils?? They rocked my world in the fall of '06, and never heard anything since. Amazing arrangement with Mickey, Billy, Mike Gordon, Steve Kimmock, etc. Just curious if anyone knows.
Recently I got to work on a cool story for the Rex Foundation concerning a project Mickey had connected them with--a woman who's a drum circle leader who got invited to Iraq to teach people drumming as a peacemaking tool. Part of the story--a Mickey interview, which is available as both text and MP3. Check it out!
Just wanted to let everyone know that the Global Drum Project is featured in the Jan./ Feb. '08 issue of Global Rhythm. It's a great read for anyone interested!
Mickey & Hussain talk about the new album, drums (of coarse!), cultural and musical heritage, and much more!

Thanks for the awesome and sweet sounds last night, Mickey. I took my oldest son to the show and we had a grape time.
Have you seen such atrocities, Mr. Hunt?
I've seen the fork...
Hey, we just pushed this live, so if you'd like a musical sampling of the new record as well as links to various related sites associated with the band and record, check out
A day late but who's "counting"...speaking of rhythm, I hope to hear some "fire on the rhythm,"the end of this month in Boulder. I wish you peace.
