  New Story for Michael's birthday today
Posted by: Cindy M - 08-08-2019, 01:32 PM - Forum: mjblue.com Updates - Replies (1)

A new MJ story at https://mjblue.com/mjstories.html

From Adam Kindness, Mj's agent in the 90's. I asked him if he had a photo of him and MJ to accompany the story but I haven't gotten a response yet. Here's hoping! A great story and birthday related. 

Also on that page is a story from Hobo Jim. He said he'd send a photo of them together but Michael dropped off his list before he shared it. I'm finding that's often the case with Michael's friends. I'm so grateful for his true friends who haven't forgotten him.

Who has the first pressing of Ain't Dis Da Life with the brown back cover? The next pressing was the black, sharper version. Who knows what else is different? (both versions are at https://mjblue.com/aaddl.html. Right click on images to enlarge.)

  Thinking of Michael
Posted by: pob - 07-26-2019, 12:23 AM - Forum: Michael Discussion - No Replies

Celebrate his life and honor his memory by sharing his music and directing people to this website and the YouTube channel. And don't forget to celebrate Cindy and all her efforts at keeping the music alive by making a donation to keep the music coming.  She has released so many songs that were never recorded on cds so maybe fans of Michael's music could donate those cd funds to this website. We are so fortunate that Michael left such a legacy!

  How Can It Be?
Posted by: Iowafemale - 07-25-2019, 09:11 PM - Forum: Michael Discussion - No Replies

How can it be two years?  It seems like forever actually.  I find myself today at the Mayo Clinic, ironically the last place I heard Michael sing when he was using oxygen.  We got done with appointments early morning that day and Michael's performance was during a late lunch hour.  I knew there was a lot to do at home, so I told my husband we didn't have to stay if he was in a hurry to get home.  My husband saw Michael walking around pulling his little tank and said he thought I might want to stay, not knowing when Michael would be performing close again.  I am so happy we made that choice.  I am grateful for those of us who Michael brought together...getting to know Cindy has been a gift.  She has worked her tail off for all of us.  I woke up this morning humming "Kiss Me Goodbye" and it caused a flow of tears.  I guess it's message needed to be brought to my attention, for we do not know when our last time with someone will be.  Be well.

Heart Two Years...
Posted by: NewYorkMJFan - 07-25-2019, 06:44 PM - Forum: Michael Discussion - No Replies

Dear Cindy,

A MILLION THANK YOUS to you for creating this "unofficial" website.  It really helps to soften the pain of Michael being gone.  (Can he be gone two years already?  It's just not possible...) 

What a labor of love that you have preserved his music and promulgated so many of his unpublished songs and photos.

Since I only heard of MJ's music in 1988,  I missed out on SO MUCH  of the early music that all you wonderful Minnesota folks got to enjoy!  Thanks to Cindy, I have a LOT of catching up to do!

Michael's music brought joy to my life when there was none.  I will always be grateful for his talent, and for Cindy for continuing this website.

  Remembering and being thankful....
Posted by: retnavycpo - 07-25-2019, 01:48 PM - Forum: Michael Discussion - Replies (2)

On this two year anniversary of Michael's passing, I simply wanted to say how thankful I am for Michael's wonderful music.  His voice was like no other.  His guitar playing was nothing short of magical.  Not a week goes by that I don't listen to his singing, and I watch the wonderful youtube videos that Cindy uploads to Youtube (thank you Cindy!).  

I am sad today, but so grateful to have lived to experience meeting and listening to Michael perform in person.  So memorable.  Peter

Photo Trading cards
Posted by: Iowafemale - 07-25-2019, 12:52 AM - Forum: Michael Discussion - No Replies

Who has seen Michael's CMA Country Gold trading card?  I bought a bunch of them in an e-bay auction.  I am offering one free to anyone who makes a donation to keep the website going.  Any donation at all.  Cindy is doing this all out of her own pocket and I know none of us want to lose the website.  Please consider a small donation and you'll get a free card.
