Son Of Man

 

 

A Bit About The Band

The story of the legendary Welsh band Man is a long and changing one, with numerous members since they formed in 1969 with twin guitarists Micky Jones and Deke Leonard. They were soon joined by bassist Martin Ace (who started as a third guitarist and for many years they were the core members. Deke left and returned a few times, and sadly Micky suffered a brain tmour and died in 2010. During his illness, son George took his place and a couple of years later Martin Ace's son Josh also joined.

In 2008 George, together with long-serving Man drummer Bob Richards decided to leave Man (although Man still play occasionally) but continue to play the band’s music – as George says "One of the last things my father ever said to me was it’s up to you now to keep my music alive". Now the legacy lives on, in the form of “Son Of Man”, playing Man classics as well as new material.

In addition to George Jones (guitar) and Bob Richards on drums (he’s also worked with Asia, Graham Bonnet, AC/DC and others), they feature Glenn Quinn (Tigertailz) on guitar, with Ray Jones (bass), Marco James (keys) and Richie Galloni (vocals), all from another well-known Welsh band, Sassafras. They are sometimes joined on stage by Man's other original guitarist, Deke Leonard.
