Three days out from Christmas and the majority of Australians are swept up with Christmas- bullshit frenzy. But the 22nd of December is an important date on our calendar as we remember Mick
Cocks – who sadly left thIs world thtee years ago today.
Today is not a day for sadness… it is a day to look back and smile. We will crack open a beer and loudly play 1981’s Assault and Battery all day. After all these years I can still hear things on that record which I marvel at and it would blow most modern rock n roll out if the water. Cocksy was a vital cog in the Rosie Tatts machine. I am fortunate I got to see him play live at many Sydney venues over the years. Memories to cherish. Mick Cocks personified rock n roll and is never to be forgotten.
