After suffering from a stroke last November, Bad Company and Mott the Hoople guitarist Mick Ralphs is in a care home continuing his recovery.
On April 1, a representative from the Mick Ralphs Blues Band reported:
A long overdue update on Mick. He is now settled in his care home, and his boys are still very much in attendance. Hes finding the physio very tough, but is trying his very best. He sends his love to all, and thanks each and every one of you that sends Birthday wishes. He had a great day yesterday with Ben and family, and Jim, but was very tired today. He loves to hear how things musical are doing, and news of Bad Co, Ian Hunter, and his Blues Band are very welcome, and brings a smile to his face. Hes determined to get back on his feet again, which is very hard for the visitors to take, but we all stay very positive, and supportive. much love to you all.
Bad Company bandmate Paul Rodgers recently posted a picture from a recent visit to see Mick holding a guitar and Mick holding a ukulele.
