MIKE & THE MECHANICS

Hello and welcome back.... Mike & the Mechanics was formed as a side project by Mike Rutherford (Genesis).
The band started in 1985 and included singer Paul Carrack, Paul Young (singer), Adrian Lee(keyboard player) & Peter Van Hooke (drums).

Singer Paul Young died in July 2000 from a heart attack.




Mike & the Mechanics have released 7 albums to date and include songs like "Silent Running", "All I Need is a Miracle", "Nobody's Perfect", "The Living Years", "Nobody Knows" & "Word of Mouth"

Song "The Living Years" was penned by Mike Rutherford after the death of his father.










My favorite album from Mike & the Mechanics would be their 1985 album (self titled) because it includes the song "Par Avion"... A haunting song, with mellow synths and the amazing  voice of Paul Carrack.
Why this song was never a single I will never know.

Mike & the Mechanics are a multi-talented band with some of the best songs of the 80s.












PAR AVION ................. brings a small tear to your eye



SILENT RUNNING 



ALL I NEED IS A MIRACLE



NOBODY'S PERFECT



THE LIVING YEARS



NOBODY KNOWS



WORD OF MOUTH
