Simple Minds man Mike Ogletree coming to Lanark Vogue

HE might have been in Simple Minds, but forthcoming Lanark Vogue charity gig headliner Mike Ogletree had a clever idea when he left Scotland to work and live in New York.

Although the drummer with Simple Minds, Mike is very much an all-round muso.
