R.I.P. Mike McDonald

I just wanted to take a moment and say something about Mike McDonald. For those of you who don't know, Mike, 23, worked with Manic Productions, and I'd met him more than a few times. We probably only had a long conversation once or twice, but Mike was a good guy who really loved music. Loved it.

And, sadly, Mike died after getting hit by a train Wednesday night. Details still aren't totally known. I don't know his parents or family or friends or anything, but if any are reading, my best wishes are with you. Mike was a great guy.

I am Mike's father. Thank you for your kind comments and thank you to the hundreds of his friends that came to the wake and funeral. It was overwhelming. He will be deeply missed.

I just learned today Dec. 14th that Mike was the man I read of last month. Mike took guitar lessons in my shop through his high school years and continued to stop in after that. He really took his music serious. This is quite a shock. My thoughts go out to his family and friends.
