Thanks, Kim.. i had the sad, yet impossible now to forget , experience of seeing Micheal's last show, last sunday night at the club bene in sayreville nj... he played an amazing show, having seen him 6-8 times over the last dozen or so years. i remember marveling still at him devasting technique, which he delivered with total ease and calm..cracking jokes between every few songs. he also goofed around, using a manikin's head as a holder for his headphone mic.. and bouncing around on a kid's giant play ball. he would take a set break, do yoga, and come back energized and kickin' i'll never forget this show, i'm gonna write the whole experience down one day, esp. the cool converstaion i had with him and other fans post show. he would always come out and rap, sign , just hang out with fans/friends.. please check out his music if you never has. he was the human loop machine. andre'
