Michael Frederick Box (born 8 June 1947 in Walthamstow, East London, England), better known by his stage name Mick Box, is the lead guitarist of British rock group Uriah Heep. He is the only member from the band's founding in 1969 who is still active with the group. A large part of the initial success of the band, he is often overshadowed by members David Byron and Ken Hensley. His early work stands out on the album Salisbury with complex and powerful wah solos.
In a very real sense, Mick Box is Uriah Heep . He has been the one constant throughout the somewhat turbulent history of the band. In fact, the only recording he has ever done has been with that band, with the exception of working on David Byron 's solo album. With Byron being a fellow Heepster, this is only so much of a stretch.
