Mick Green was one of the most self-effacing guitar legends in rock 'n roll. Since the early 1960's as a member of Johnny Kidd & The Pirates, his guitar style, mixing lead and rhythm parts in one, was an inspiration to three generations of musicians, including the Who's Pete Townshend and Dr. Feelgood's Wilko Johnson. Yet he remained amazing elusive as a subject, preferring to stay in the background except when he was playing.
