Mick Thomas

Wed 21 June 2017

Mick Thomas has been touring and recording as a solo artist for longer than when he fronted the great folk-rock band Weddings Parties Anything.

He tells Barry Divola about moving to a new school each year with his dad’s job in country Victoria, forming his first band called The Rissoles and opting out of the Beatles versus Stones argument by becoming a Kinks fan. Mick plays Harry Belafonte, Herman's Hermits, Jackson Browne and more.
