Current mood: sad

Category: Music

It is with great sadness we must announce that Mickie Jones has died. He passed away today after a long and brave battle with liver cancer. He was loved by his family and friends and will be missed. Please say a prayer for Mickie and his family.






The official press release is below.









Mickie Jones, original ANGEL bassist and founding member passed away in San Dimas, CA September 5, 2009 after a long battle with liver cancer. His family said he passed peacefully and beautifully.





Mickie performed on four ANGEL albums ‘Angel’, ‘Helluva Band’, ‘On Earth As It Is In Heaven’, and ‘An Anthology’. He toured extensively with ANGEL in the United States for several years including their infamous Japanese Tour. Before ANGEL he played in the rock group Bux which included guitarist Punky Meadows (ANGEL) and singer Ralph Morman (Joe Perry Project and Savoy Brown). Bux released one album on Capitol Records ‘We Come To Play’ in 1976. Both Jones and Meadows were asked to join the New York Dolls but declined. After leaving ANGEL he formed the LA band Empire and was the lead singer. Empire included drummer Steve Riley (LA Guns). Over the years he became interested in film production and would later work in the Hollywood film industry.
