He looks and sounds strikingly like his old man, so much so that one of his dad’s former sidemen said: "It’s like watching a ghost in the flesh."
Mud, however also has his own very individual mojo working and will be supporting the release of the bands latest CD "Son of the Seventh Son" on tour with West Weston: harp, Ronni Buysack-Boysen: guitar, Ian Jennings: double bass, Mike Hellier: drums and Eric Ranzoni: keys.
