Mike - the Man

Mike Levine:
Ďthe man behind the moustacheí!

From 1979 tour book.

The information presented here is taken  from a concert program I purchased during a Triumph concert at Torontoís Canadian National Exhibition in 1979 (the "Just a Game" tour). During that summer, Mike was 26 years old (making him a ripe olí 44 at this moment in 1997)  and is a Gemini. Previous to Triumph, he spent a few years in New York and some time in England (no mention of what he was doing - but Iíll guess there was the odd party). Heís been playing bass since the age of 10 and has been influenced  by Richard Davis, Sly Stone and Phil Spector.

According to the concert program, Mike likes, "money, sex and room service" (so, who doesnít?). He also likes his old Fenders, JBL speakers, Crown amps, Reflex cabinets and Hammond B3ís. Letís remember, this list was compiled in 1979, so a bit must have changed (does anyone still use B3ís anymore?..) .
