Mick Ralphs Aims For Classic Blues Club Vibe With His Blues Band

(The Blues) Mott The Hoople and Bad Company guitarist Mick Ralphs is more interested in how people get on in his Mick Ralphs Blues Band than how well they can play.

And he says one of his main motivations is to capture the feel of classic-era British blues clubs. He's gearing up for a brief UK tour later this month, ahead of taking part in Mott's run of reunion shows, which follows their 2009 gathering.

Ralphs says: "I put together this band with a bunch of guys I met at a pub where there was this monthly blues jam. I thought, 'If I can talk to these guys and make sure they're okay people, maybe we can work together.'

"I've always maintained it's more about how you get on with people in a band than your proficiency. If you get on with people you can bring the best out of them." More including upcoming live dates.
