Never mistake a clear view for a short distance.
I saw him play once in NYC at the Lone Star bar; this was probably late 90’s. There was a warm-up band, a bunch of high school kids, and the place was full of their fans – most of them left when they finished. There weren’t many people there, which shocked me. When MT came on, he was apparently unhappy with his sound, and spent the set complaining to the sound guy and yelling at his band. This was the summer, and he was wearing a long coat and winter scarf. Somebody heckled him – “hey Mick, its 90 degrees out … what’s with the scarf?” The whole thing was kind of embarrassing and sad, not at all what I was expecting.Anyway, I hope he does get a lawyer; he certainly deserves some of the money.
