  • Going to see him in December together with young James Blackshaw
  • 2 Apr 2014 10,877 listeners
  • (ok, I'll do it) I'm shocked to see he only has 10,000 listeners. This is quality stuff, and I could see this having been fairly popular.
  • Well I had Michael's tutorial book and tape back in the early 80's. Play Guitar The Easy Way. Very generous with his technique. Saw him in Wakefield last year - happy to talk to we punters. Gentleman all 'round.
  • What evil has he done to be so unknown !
  • I was shocked to see he only only has 9,000 listeners. This is quality stuff, and I could see this having been fairly popular. [2] (he has been gaining 1000 per year by the looks of it!) was great to finally see him live, with thurston moore too! hopefully see him again soon
  • I was shocked to see he only only has 8,000 listeners. This is quality stuff, and I could see this having been fairly popular.
  • I can't believe he only has 7000 listeners, it's not like he is inaccessible, his guitar work is phenomenal
  • sickkkkkk
  • I saw him open for Bill Callahan 2 weeks ago, his voice is much deeper/raspier now. But it was still an awesome show.
