When Bob Richards and George Jones left MAN in 2008 they decided they would continue to play the bands music, with George Jones's father being the founding member they saw it only right that he continued the family legacy.
"One of the last things my father ever said to me was, it’s up to you now to keep my music alive. I love the music of MAN and Micky was a huge influence musically, there was no question about it really."
When Micky Jones passed on in 2010 George Jones organised a memorial concert for him and put together a group of musicians (Bob Richards on drums, Glenn Quinn on Bass and Chris Buck on guitar). We called it Son of MAN, it seemed quite apt. At the second memorial a week later (the first sold out), George put another band together (Bob Richards on drums, Ray Jones on bass, Marco James on keys and Richie Galloni on Vocals) The latter three musicians were from another well known Welsh band called Sassafras. In a series of events the two bands who played those nights merged into what we have now.
Son of MAN play a mixture of MAN classics, heavily focused on Micky’s input.
"It’s been an extremely rewarding experience, musically and personally. Long may it continue." - George Jones 2016
