Michael Graham 'Mickey' Jupp (born 6 March 1944, in Worthing, Sussex, England) is an English musician and songwriter, mainly associated with the Southend music scene. Jupp played in several Southend bands after leaving art college in 1962 and was in the R&B group the Orioles (1963 to late 1965), which included Mo Witham (guitar, vocals) and Bob Clouter (drums), but the band were never recorded.
Mickey Jupp's first solo album, Juppanese, was released in 1978. Nick Lowe produced side One, and Rockpile backs Jupp. The musical style on Side One was British R&B with the piano on the foreground. Side Two is produced by Gary Brooker, a very tasteful production with very good musicians: Gary on piano and Hammond organ, Jupp on vocals, guitar and piano, Chris Spedding on guitar, Bruce Lynch on bass and Dave Mattacks on drums, the last two from Gary's Fear of Flying album. Nowadays Mickey has not performed live since 2001 as he's living a quiet life in Cumbria running a craft shop! Mickey Jupp has never reached the success he deserves. His only success is that he has been covered by artists like: Gary Brooker (of course), Dr Feelgood, The Records, Elkie Brooks, Nick Lowe, Dave Edmunds, Roger Chapman and many more. The Procol Harum connections will never end!

That year, he was a mere 34 years old but he had been rock & rolling for over a decade, first making waves with Legend, a proto-pub band whose 1969 debut incongruously appeared on the progressive Vertigo imprint. Despite the sly production by Tony Visconti, Legend's first album didn't go far on the charts, establishing a pattern that dogged Jupp throughout his career: he was always slightly out of step with the times, never quite getting right enough to climb up the charts

Mickey Jupp’s best known band is called Legend, appropriate because, the singer is a bit of a legend himself. He is famed for such albums as ‘Juppanese’ and 1971’s ‘Legend’ also known as ‘Red Boot’ thanks to its distinctive cover design. But who is the man who once epitomised down to earth British rock’n’roll? Mickey Jupp was born on March 6, 1944 in Worthing, Sussex. After leaving art college in 1962 began singing and playing piano and guitar with several groups in Southend, Essex, where he then lived. Their ‘Legend’ album mixed pop, rockabilly and blues. The original band split up soon after the release of the album and Juppy put together a new line up with Mo Witham on guitar, John Bobin on bass and Bill Fifield on drums.
Like Dave Edmunds, calist Mickey Jupp was a champion of traditional rock & roll during the late '70s, a time when it had been all but discarded. Unlike Edmunds, Jupp wrote the majority of his own material, which updated '50s rock & roll with a tongue-in-cheek irony. Jupp began his career with the Essex-based British R&B group the Orioles in the early '60s. Following the release of their third album in 1971, Legend disbanded and Jupp took another lengthy break from music. When he was coaxed back into performing in 1975 by Lee Brileaux, the lead singer of Dr. Feelgood, pub rock was in its last days yet Jupp was well respected in the scene, since both Ducks Deluxe and Dr. Feelgood had recorded versions of his songs ("Cheque Book" and "Down at the Doctors," respectively). Jupp released his first solo single, "Nature's Radio," on Arista Records in 1978.
