Bottom L to R: Mick Bolton: Ian Hunter: 
 
"I was in a band called White Myth based in Wigan from 1970 to 1971 - and a blues band called Blind Eye in 1972. I know that White Myths' drummer, Lou Rosenthal has played with The Merseybeats since 2000, but I'd love to know what happened to the other band members?
 
  I moved to London in 1972 and joined Mott The Hoople and later Dexys Midnight Runners. Maybe your readers might enjoy a look at my site - www.mickbolton.com There's a list of all the gigs I've ever done, including lots in obscure - and not so obscure - venues in Lankyland and beyond, plus photos and anecdotes about the various bands I've played with."

 

2009
Mott The Hoople reunion, Hammersmith Apollo London.
Morgan Fisher: Ian Hunter: Mick Bolton:
 
  I just wish I had some photos from my time playing in bands around Lankyland. We did hundreds of gigs - wouldn't you think one of us might have thought of bringing a camera along - just once? I suppose taking a photo was a big deal back then - you had to get it developed! How primitive!!  
 
  Actually we did have one publicity shot taken soon after we formed White Myth - sitting on a heap of rubble down by the side of Wigan Wallgate Station, if I remember rightly. It appeared in the Lancashire Evening Post I think. I was interested to see the L.E. Agency mentioned on Lanky Beat. That was the first agency we played for. We told him we were a 'progressive blues band' and he said 'Oh, that sounds good' and sent us to play at a wedding in Liverpool. He didn't have a clue what a progressive blues band was supposed to be - but then neither did we. Happy days - I think!"
Mick Bolton: December 2010
