Tribute to Michael
I met Michael in Nashville back in the late 80's. He was living in Franklin. He was a real sweet guy. He had a good soul. I saw him live at the Bluebird Cafe in the early 90's. I had seats just to the right of the stage. I watched a master craftsman on the guitar. He manually changed keys between each song while talking to the audience. You just don't see anyone doing that. Needless to say, I was impressed. He showcased most of his hits up to that time. Although Bluebird is relatively small, the place was really crowded and extremely receptive to each and every song. He was in his element. When the concert was over and everyone was leaving, he was beside the front door saying how much he appreciated everyone who came to see him. He recognized me during his set but was glad to see me again.
