I'll always remember our lunch
I am so sad to hear of MJ's passing...I got to have lunch with him at Cracker Barrel about 15 years ago...I was purchasing the Takemine guitar he played on Departure. He was funny and honest about his career--we even discussed the ill-fated Lifetime Guarantee project. And the switch to country! He said "I was always a little bit folksy" and we laughed. So talented--but it was just his warmth and kindness I will remember most. He signed all of my albums and CD's--so graciously.
