Mick Clarke - Brief Bio
British blues guitarist Mick Clarke began his career with KILLING FLOOR, part of the British blues boom of the late 1960s and contemporaries of Free, Black Sabbath and Led Zeppelin. The band backed Texas blues guitar star Freddie King and toured with legends Howlin' Wolf and Otis Spann. The album "Killing Floor" was later listed as one of Classic Rock Magazine's twenty top British blues albums of the time. In the 70s Mick's band SALT built a strong following in the UK, playing at the Reading Festival 1977 and opening for Muddy Waters in London.
THE MICK CLARKE BAND was formed in the early 80s and has toured in the UK, Europe, USA and India, where Mick was the winner of the "best international act" from artistaloud.com. Mick has appeared on numerous festivals with artists including Joe Bonamassa, Johnny Winter and Rory Gallagher, and the Southern California Blues Society called him "One of the finest blues players to come out of England".
