Michael George Gibbins of Swansea, Wales was born on March 12, 1949. His father bought him his first drum kit at age 14, a "Gigster". His first bands were The Club Four (an instrumental group) and The Misfits (a Rock 'N' Roll band). A local beatnik businessman called "Schmoo" told The Iveys that Mike would be available as The Misfits were breaking up, so he gave Mike's address to Ron Griffiths. Mike or "Micky" auditioned and joined The Iveys at age 16, in the Spring of 1965, replacing Terry Gleason. The Iveys became Badfinger in November of 1969 and the rest is history. Mike passed away unexpectedly of a brain aneurysm in his sleep on October 4, 2005.
