I know you all probably never heard of Mike, but I had the pleasure of jamming with him several years ago on many different occasions. Mike was an incredible guitarist and a good guy. I remember jamming with him on "Stranglehold", "Give It Away", "Rainbow In The Dark","Pull Me Under", and many other songs. Mike never missed a single note and could perfectly duplicate the style of any guitarist he ever heard...

This is particular sad news because he was so young and left 3 small children behind.

Mike and his brother Matt founded the group SELF.

I'm a lot more like I am now than I was when I got here.

Glad you had a chance to check out Self, Yogi. Mike was very diversified and not afraid to show or play it.
