The Clash producer and Trump campaigner Mickey Foote dies
Foote produced The Clash's debut album and fought Donald Trump's golf course.
Mickey Foote, a sound engineer who produced The Clash's first album and campaigned against Donald Trump's golf course in Aberdeenshire, has died.
Foote was responsible for the London punk outfit's self-titled debut, which helped define the sound of British music in the 1970s.
He moved to Aberdeenshire in the 2000s and joined the campaign against Trump International Golf Course, which was being built near his home on the Menie Estate.
In 2009, he said: "We already have some of the best courses in the world in Scotland and the idea that another golf course and hotel is going to save us is absolutely grotesquely laughable.
"He's sold the people on the idea that it's wild, rough country and he's going to tame it, he's going to make it beautiful. I'm saying it's perfectly beautiful as it is."
Foote was a member of Sustainable Aberdeenshire, a group which protested against the construction of the course on protected sand dunes, and appeared in Anthony Baxter's 2011 documentary You've Been Trumped.
He lived on the Menie Estate with his partner Kym and worked as an engineer for sanitation firm Saniflo after retiring from the music industry.
Neighbour Susan Munro described him as a "great guy" and said he would be greatly missed.
"He was a good friend of ours and we had Christmas dinner with him every year," she said. "He was a nice neighbour to have."
Foote suffered a stroke last month and died this week at Aberdeen Royal Infirmary, aged 66.
