Mickie Most & The Gear !

...that's me.

Yep, before he became the successful record producer of The Animals, Herman's Hermits, Donovan, Suzi Quatro and the Jeff Beck Group to name a few, Mickie Most (born Michael Peter Hayes (20 June 1938 – 30 May 2003)) travelled to South Africa with his wife Christina, and formed a pop group, Mickie Most and the Playboys.
(not with his wife though).
The band scored 11 consecutive Number 1 singles playing mostly cover versions of Ray Peterson, Gene Vincent, Buddy Holly and Eddie Cochran. Returning to London in 1962, Most appeared on package tours as well as recording "Mister Porter", a minor hit in 1963, and….BANG !, he recorded these two bloody fantastic tracks in 1965 with a young Jimmy Page hammering out the guitar work !
Yeah !
