Stage Door

Andrew Ross

Michael Connection: Personal Assistent ( Tour 2005 till present)

Remarks: Andrew took over after Scott left. His first big challange was the Music Tour 2005. He seemed a bit overwhelmed by the intense experience of a tour stage door as he was rather quiet in the beginning but he soon got used to the usual madness and turned out to be a really nice man despite his often stern and thoughtful look! He held a little speech at the diffecult Brighton stage door that made us like him a lot.

Famous clients include Patrick Swayze, Don Johnson and Christian Slater.

Michael Connection: Driver (since March 2002), Personal Assistant (since October 2003 till February 2005)

Gareth Jones

Gareth Jones

Michael Connection: Personal Assistant (August 2000 till July 2003)

Remarks: If you took photos at the Chitty stage door there is hardly a chance to get a lot without having at least bits of him featured. He was a great help for Michael and his fans as well! Gareth was and I guess is a nice guy, who is dearly missed by many people! All the best to you Gareth!
