Mick Ronson was, I think, in David Bowie's backing band.
Yes Mick Ronson was on all of Bowie's albums from 1970 - 73: The Man Who Sold The World to Pin Ups (ie all the good ones).
Together with Bowie, he co-produced (and played on) the Lou Reed album Transformer.
He later worked with Bob Dylan on the Rolling Thunder Tour in 1976/77 and made a few albums with Ian Hunter from Mott The Hoople.
Not only that, he was a Yorkshire lad as well (from Hull).
He sadly died in 1993.
