Subject: RE: 2023 Obit: Mick McGarry (ossonflags)
I had the pleasure of playing squeezer for a few gigs in Punch The Horse, Mick's pub band, in the noughties. He was a formidable floor singer, but with a mic he was magnificent, filling the venue.

There is a Mick-ism I occasionally use when someone is muscling in on one of my ideas; it originated from the time a well-respected musician of this parish was also in Punch the Horse, and had the temerity to suggest tweaking a musical arrangement, and was firmly told "It's my fookin' band, Dave"

Sail on, old friend.
