Mick Ronson Research
I don't know whether Bez is still reading this blog but today I did a bit of research about only the fourth famous person who has come from Hull (where I live), after Andrew Marvell, William Wilberforce, and John Prescott - the legendary guitarist Mick Ronson, whose collaborations with David Bowie are legendary. Here is the Mick Ronson stage in the park in the centre of Hull, and it was used recently for a Hull Flood Aid concert. I myself and kids etc. have been past it many times, and did warm up exercises in front of this for a Race For Life once. So although it's not a very impressive looking stage (!) it is in the centre of Hull in these lovely gardens, and is used very often. Bez I did actually look for 'Classic Rock', but the time I got to it in was onto Feb's issue!
