Roger said on Saturday Mike passed away. Mike was the founding guitarist of Head East. Mike wrote some of the band’s best material and was a great guitarist with a great melodic sense. Last time I saw Mike was probably the 90s. I was playing double bill with Head East and just got my XB-2. Mike had come back to the band for a short time. Played a black ES-335 and his vision was terrible. He played great. Kind of had a Lee Ritenour jazzy vibe.

Hats-off for the passing of a pro who made his mark.

Saw them over 40 years ago opening for Ted Nugent in Des Moines. Solid band.
