He does covers of R&B stuff & the like. He is still local to the Grays & is enjoying life as Grandad to my 3 kids now :) I told him about your site too ..."
        - Mandy Reece - UK
"Your CD rocks, man ! Also eyeballed those 9-11-01 lyrics. Very cool. Would love to hear them slapped to a tune.

Your site is way cool. I just checked out the photos of the train station & trains. Yikes! Frightening amount of detail !!!

Your 'fake' bio at the top of your 'Ancient History' page killed me
! & you learned stuff from George Massenburg ?!? GULP! That's spectacular, man. Ears of doom ... "

Hard Times in Malibu Blues as
Blond Chitlin' Goldstein:
"I missed your performance at Theta Media Group BBQ, but was happy to find out that the strange person that I hadn't seen come in but saw going out was you!!! I asked Randy later & he told me. Too funny. Yeah, you create very well! Good to see you."
        - Cyndie Tobin - recording studio administrator - CA
"I listened to about 7 tracks on the CD. There are some interesting ideas but I have no idea what I would do w/ these songs/lyrics. You are sort of Inde/folk country & as you know, I am more pop/rock. Hard to sell it. James Taylor could get away with Banks of the Big Sandy lyric but he would make the music pretty for the listener to hear the sad story. Otherwise, it would be too hard to listen to.
Harsh music + harsh lyric = tiny audience. Even with pretty music this would be a hard song to pitch.
Now It's Over could be country but needs some more cleverness in the lines.
Ditto on I'm a Zombie. One line is kind of gross for average country fan ('saliva & drool on left side of mouth'). This idea could be a funny clever country song but music needs to be fun upbeat country. The hook might be better if it was 'You Made Me a Zombie'. Tell a story of how you met some girl at a bar who turned out to be a zombie & of course made you one. This is just my very humble opinion & I could be totally wrong but that is my take on it."

"Mick, you are totally THE MAN!"
( MT performing at Keyboard Gallery):  "I hope you knock their socks off!"
"I read a bunch of your lyrics & enjoyed them. I had a good laugh on some & others were more provocative/interesting. I had a melody or two come up as I was reading. I noticed Jimmie Haskell's name on at least one of the songs. I remember seeing his name a lot on albums I bought over the years."

        - Kevin McKnelly - singer-songwriter-producer I Want It - I Want It Now! video - CA
(Bicci&OnriRR featured - Newhall CA Library art exhibit July 10-Oct 5 2015:)  "Keep chuggin' along! Miss you guys."
(Barnes & Noble Encino Featured Poet 11-28-09:)  "Well done on being Featured Poet. Veddy distinguished!"

Aloha Oi Vey:   "Mazel tov!"
Looking for Young Men:   "Pretty good lyrics. Be all that you can be, huh?"

She Is Magic:   "Very moving lyrics really describe this wonderful pup."

Perpetual Eclipse:  "Another cool lyric. Keep 'em comin'."
It Won't Help:   "Great lyrics. Got music for it?"
Santa Might Be a Mexican:   "Pretty clever. I hope the Latinos can get the joke without doing a drive-by. Ho Ho Ho, Arribe!"

the good work. (I don't believe in Santa though.)
