Our condolences. Mike and I were good friends going back to the Gasket days, and kept in touch for some time following, going on many a long bike ride together. Years of good memories. Time and life happens and we drifted apart, yet I always thought we'd be hooking up for another beer. This is a sad day.

Michael was a true friend and my travel companion. He especially liked our several trips to New York City, Chicago and The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland. He is sadly missed.

Haven’t been in contact with Mike in awhile, but how can I forget the wild and crazy times we shared in the late seventies and eighties. Hanging out at “the creek”, your awesome Beatles albums, Brady St festival, the lakefront, concerts and the list goes on. My sincere condolences to the family. I’ll see you again Mike...

Mike was a friend for over 40 years. An awesome guitar player, and drummer. I will remember the good times and his wonderful parents who were always there for us when we played in the band at their house. It is hard to say goodbye.
