Micky Jones, guitarist/vocalist with Welsh prog band Man, has died at the age of 63.
We send condolences to his family and bandmates.
With Merthyr Tydfil-born Jones, the band had four Top 40 UK albums from the late 1960s and toured across Europe and America, where admirers included Frank Zappa.
Friend and former colleague Phil Little said Jones had a "command of melody" and was "the most humble guy".
Jones, who had been fighting a brain tumour, died at a care home in Swansea.
Mr Little, who played with Jones in the 1980s with the London-based The Flying Pigs, said Frank Zappa once described Jones as "one of the 10 best guitarists in the world".
Man's ever-changing line-up had some 20 musicians over the years.
Jones was an ever-present member of Man, who split in 1976 and re-formed in 1983, until a brain tumour caused his departure in 2002.
He returned briefly two years later but retired from touring and spent his last years in residential care.
