Rare Electric Guitar
Mick began playing guitar when he was 6 years old, after receiving a “Mickey Mouse” guitar as a Christmas present from his parents. His musical talent continued to develop and at 14, he joined his first band; “The Jades”. “The Jades” were a Beatles cover band in which Mars played bass guitar, but soon after he replaced the guitarist. Very quickly music took priority over his schoolwork and often found himself in trouble for that reason. As soon as he could, he dropped out of school to concentrate on music and moved into a shed behind his parent’s house allowing him to play as loud as he wanted, without interruption.
