Newly unearthed pics of Mick with General Public

So what does Marconi playing the mamba mean? "Marconi" is referring to the radio itself. It plays a deadly snake. The snake - the mamba - is slithering from the speakers. Ready to kill greedy corporations. Ready to free the world of all that is evil, and to leave behind only the youthful idealism encompassed by the tenets of rock and roll.

When is this? Fall 83?
Look, you have to establish context for these things. And I maintain that unless you appreciate the Fall of Constantinople, the Great Fire of London, and Mickey Mantle's fatalist alcoholism, live Freddy makes no sense. If you want to half-ass it, fine, go call Simon Schama to do the appendix.

If you read the link in the first post it says they're newly unearthed. I don't think I've seen them before.

I read the link. I was disputing the validity of the claim.

Ah right, looks like the claim was invalid.

Why does Mick play his E shape barre chord like this?

No "because he can" answers, please!

I've often wondered that. It looks really awkward. So much easier to tuck your little finger under your ring finger.

Doesn't he also play his D shape using his little finger?

I know this has been discussed a zillion times already, but are there any circulating recordings of Mick with General Public?

That's a lot more common. I do it myself a lot.
