Musicbrainz lists the band as "Mike + The Mechanics". Even if you search for "Mike & The Mechanics", it still brings you to "Mike + The Mechanics". Wikipedia lists the band as "Mike + The Mechanics". If you search for "Mike & The Mechanics", it redirects you to "Mike + The Mechanics". If you go to the band's webpage, the first thing you see is a banner that says, "Mike + The Mechanics", not "Mike & The Mechanics", and every blog entry on the home page labels them, "Mike + The Mechanics". If I were an objective observer, I'd say that the band's name is "Mike + The Mechanics", not "Mike & The Mechanics".
Mike Rutherford and his mates Tim and Andrew from Mike and the Mechanics give us the pleasure to be interviewed at the town festival in Wiesbaden, Germany.
Don't miss the live footage from the songs "Miracle" and "The Living Years"!

Where do you get the information that it should be Mike + The Mechanics? On the cover of the albums it says the name with bot + and &. I wonder which is correct. Anyway, a wonderful band, love their music <3 <3
