What can I do? Standing next to you...

On what would have been his 65th birthday, legacy.com takes a brief look back on the life and career of Mick Ronson.

You can read the full thing and watch a couple of videos here, but here's an excerpt in the shape of a comment from DB which he made on The Arsenio Hall Show shortly after Mick?s death

?The band ? The Spiders From Mars ? that was the whole situation that sort of got me the kind of fame I had in the early '70s. The lead guitarist for that band was Mick Ronson and unfortunately, tragically, he succumbed to cancer 3 or 4 days ago... and in his passing I want to say that of all the early '70s guitar players Mick was probably one of the most influential and profound and I miss him a lot.?

Meanwhile, if you're in Mick's hometown of Hull on June 4th, you may want to attend the second annual Mick Ronson Legacy charity event. Full details and musical acts booked for the day can be viewed here.
