From Wikipedia, the free Encyclopedia

Mickey Thomas (born 1949) in Cairo, Georgia, is an American musician.

He was inspired to take part in music after seeing a Beatles performance in 1964.

In 1974, Thomas took charge of the Elvin Bishop Group and eventually made it to lead vocals. His crowning achievement was the hit Fooled Around And Fell In Love, a #3 single in 1977.

In early 1979 Mickey Thomas was requested to join Jefferson Starship after the departure of Marty Balin and Grace Slick. His first single with the group, Jane made it to #14.

He spent most of the early eighties singing duets with Slick (who rejoined in 1981) and gaining greater influence in the band. After Paul Kantner left in 1984, Thomas was sole leader of the band. From 1985-1989 the newly dubbed "Starship" scored some of its biggest hits. When Grace Slick left in 1988, Thomas sang all lead vocals - in a band that was formed when he was just 15 years old. But, their fortunes as pop-music artists soon ran out.

In 1990, Mickey Thomas changed the name to "Starship featuring Mickey Thomas"; touring has continued with this title. In 1998 he guested on Sammy Hagar's Marching To Mars.
