Fistful of Chords
Mickey Gallagher wrote songs with Ian Dury for almost a quarter of a century, until the singer's death in 2000. A member of The Blockheads since 1977, Mickey continues to tour with both the band and The Animals. He lifts the lid on the ups and downs of working with maverick genius Dury, explains the band's decision to continue after their leader's death, and tells Jim Drury why he turned down a full-time role in The Clash.
