Jones' film credits include "National Lampoon's Vacation," "Sling Blade," "Tin Cup," "Total Recall" and many more; TV credits include "Justified," "M*A*S*H," "Home Improvement," "Baywatch," "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia" and "Workaholics."
Jones was a musician long before he ever saw time on a screen according to the New York Daily News. A drummer, Mickey Jones played on tracks like "Secret Agent Man" by Johnny Rivers, "If I Had a Hammer" by Trini Lopez, and "Just Dropped In (To See What Condition My Condition Was In)" by Kenny Rogers and the First Edition.
His career of over 20 years started before he was even out of high school and led to over a dozen certified Gold records.
He'd go on to play drums for Bob Dylan, joining the singer-songwriter on his infamous 1966 tour through Europe that saw Dylan called "Judas" for playing with electric instruments in Manchester. Some fans saw the decision as an abandonment of the sound that propelled him to fame.
