mjblue.com history & donations

This site as of 3/2/2019 is now an unoffficial fan site just as it was when started by yours truly in 1997.

It began as http://members.aol.com/mjbluer and switched to mjblue.com in 1999. It became the official site when Michael put the URL on his Then & Now CD in '97. It's been a labor of love in every sense and has gone through many designs, often with Michael's help for the creative part. After his death, I redesigned it to be responsive across all platforms in addition to adding more pages and photos. Though it has a more simple design now, I hope Michael would be happy with it and I always keep in mind: what would he want.

In addition, shortly before his passing, Michael asked me to be his archivist and gave me all his media - cassettes, reel to reel tapes and DATs. Though he made his wishes known to the family, they decided not to follow them. This site is now the unofficial, not for profit, fan site. I continue to improve and add to this site. He also gave me many newspaper articles years ago and I'll be adding many of those to the site soon. If there's anything you'd like to see or hear, please contact me. This is all for you, because as we all know, Michael had the best fans in the world.

Thank you to everyone who's made a donation or bought a CD to keep this website funded. Thank you to all the fans who have become lifelong friends. Thank you to Les Irvin, webmaster of jonimitchell.com, for the inspiration, advice and friendship.

Michael's son prohibited the sale of CDs on the official site. This is now a fan site and I am not selling the CDs Michael gave to me but it's totally allowable to sell CDs I bought legally from other sources - eBay or from the record companies.

If you are looking for a CD no longer offered here: The Early Albums, Then & Now, Moonlit Déjà Vu (sealed with slip case), Departure, I would be happy to send you one (please, no bulk requests). Please consider a donation, at least for the cost of shipping and mailing materials. Thank you!

Please consider a donation.

Besides the occasional CD purchase, mjblue.com, was currently fully funded by Michael's webmaster (maxed out credit cards) ever since MJ had to stop touring. Now with your contributions, this site will continue to thrive. Donate through:
