  8. It’s hard to belive that your gone. I still remember the days on stage with you. You were then and still are now one of the best drummers I have ever played with. I haven’t seen you in 30 years, but I can still look to my left and see you behind that pearl white kit pounding out the foundation that made our music. When I look in the mirror I don’t see the young guitar player that I once was, but when I close my eyes I see the young drummer with the Peter Frampton hair that was one of the driving forces of my youth.
    I will miss you Mikie

  9. Leslee, Mark and Family,

    I am saddened by your loss and I want you to know I am thinking of you. It doesn’t seem that long ago when The Party Place was the place to be and Mark & Mike tought me to bartend. All the fun times at the bar and going to Mike’s gigs were the best and most carefree times of my life. My prayers are with you all… I know Mike will truly be missed.
