On This Day 17 April

Jimmy Page moonlights from art school, plays harmonica!

1964 17 April -  'Hush Your Mouth' by Mickey Finn and the Blue Men was released

Mickey Waller (1947 – 2013), a.k.a. Mickey Finn, was an English guitarist, founder of Mickey Finn & The Blue Men (not to be confused with the Blue Man group).  While Jimmy Page didn't get credit as a session man or a full-time member of the band, he did play on a few of their records.

This is one of the sessions I did whilst I was still at art school and on this I played harmonica. Mickey Finn and the Blue Men had applied a blue beat rhythm to the Jimmy Reid song 'Hush Your Mouth'. I had done other recordings with this band: the guys were cool and were always good to play with.
On this day in 1960, Eddie Cochran died in a road traffic accident in Chippenham, Wiltshire. RIP.
