Mickey Jones (born June 10, 1941) is an American musician and actor. His career as a drummer had him backing up such artists and bands as Trini Lopez, Johnny Rivers, Bob Dylan, and The First Edition with Kenny Rogers. Jones has seventeen gold records from his musical career of over two decades. After the break-up of The First Edition in 1976, Jones concentrated on his career as a character actor, where he has made many appearances on film and television.


Early life and career
Mickey Jones was born on June 10, 1941, in Houston, Texas, to Fred Edward Jones, a U.S. Naval Officer, and Frances Marie (née Vieregge) Jones, a homemaker. His sister Cheryl Marie died in 2006.

Jones attended Sunset High School in Oak Cliff, a suburb of Dallas. It was during this time that he obtained and learned to play his first set of drums. After sitting in with several local bands, Jones and four schoolmates formed their own band called The Catalinas. Although the band saw some local success, he was replaced by a new drummer as Jones was only sixteen at the time, and the band wanted someone who was of legal age.

Career as drummer
After working as a freelance drummer with various acts, Jones was introduced to Trini Lopez. When Lopez's drummer became ill, he was asked to take his place and eventually became the band's new permanent drummer.

In 1959, Jones left Lopez's band to pursue a degree in Business Administration at North Texas State College (now The University of North Texas). After college, he took a job at Rohr Aircraft in San Diego. Seeing that the life of a factory worker was not for him, Jones moved to Los Angeles to get back into the entertainment industry. He landed a job as a page at the NBC studios, while re-establishing his friendship with Lopez, who had moved to L.A. as well. Jones would again become Lopez's drummer, while Lopez would see much success with hits such as "If I Had A Hammer", "La Bamba" and "America".

In 1964, Jones left Lopez's band to join Johnny Rivers ("Secret Agent Man", "Memphis" and "Mountain of Love") as his drummer. During this time, he traveled with Rivers' band, along with singer Ann Margaret, to entertain the troops in Vietnam.

In 1966, Jones was made an offer by Bob Dylan to join him as his drummer. Replacing Levon Helm, Jones would accompany Dylan with the other members of what would become The Band, on his world tour of Australia and Europe. It was during this tour while performing at the Manchester Free Trade Hall in England on May 17, 1966, that the audience jeered Dylan for attempting to play an electric guitar during the latter half of the show.

Jones's career with Bob Dylan would be cut short when Dylan had to temporarily stop performing in order to recover from a motorcycle accident. At this time, Mickey had decided to pursue a career in acting. He had landed jobs as an extra, when in 1967 he was approached to be the drummer for a new group called The First Edition, with lead singer Kenny Rogers. With hits such as "Something's Burning", "Ruby, Don't Take Your Love To Town" and "Just Dropped In (To See What Condition My Condition Was In)", The First Edition would see much success over the next ten years, even having their own TV variety show, "Rollin' on the River" (later shortened to "Rollin'"), in the early 1970s.

Acting career
After the breakup of The First Edition in 1976, Jones pursued a full-time career in acting. As a character actor, he would make many appearances on television and film, such as being part of the cast of Flo, the short-lived spin-off to the CBS sitcom Alice, his role as a crooked mechanic/sheriff in National Lampoon's Vacation and his role as Chris Farber in the mini-series & weekly television series, V. More recently, he appeared as the subway riding biker in a Breath Savers commercial and had a recurring role as Pete Bilker on the ABC sitcom Home Improvement. In 2005, he contributed to the documentary, No Direction Home: Bob Dylan. In 1996, he appeared in the movie Tin Cup, with fellow character actor Dennis Burkley. He and Burkley were commonly mistaken for each other.

In 2009, Jones published his autobiography "That Would Be Me", the title based on the catchphrase often used by his character on "Home Improvement".
