Tonights show.


Looking forward to tonights show, its a shame Roger won't be there this week, but I'm sure we'll have a laugh as always. Its going to air a little later tonight, 7-9pm London time, I hope everyone gets a good feed and is able to watch, if not, you can catch the loop.

About that review, I was really happy for Rachel, so I can't blame his ear, because he obviously loves good music, I'm afraid he just didn't think I was up to the grade. That did upset me a little, but I've had a lot worse happen to me, and I will continue as always along this long road.
So this is going to be short and sweet, thanks to everyone that rallied to my aid, Rene is a star isn't she, but don't worry, I'm ok with it, the rough with the smooth.
Thankyou again.

It's fucking bullshit. We all know you're fantastic. I got SO pissed when I read that!

P.S. I've let Simon know that I am anxiously awaiting your CD, and that I will give tons of them out as gifts...we love you!!

Don't worry darling, you are a self taught musician and a great one at that. I always wondered about critics as to who teaches them. I don't believe there is a course or degree program in criticism, and also who says, "I want to be a critic when I grow up". I'm sure most of us would agree that your profession is a bit more honorable.

Keep on doing what you love, because we love it as well.

Good Morning,
I want you to know that I love your music. You are a talented singer songwriter. In the attic has been such a blast, and your personality and spirit has made it such fun.
Have a great time tonight. I'll be watching it live. MY little one is home from school today, so I'm sure I'll have to miss part(s) of it, thank goodness for the loop!

Dear Mikey

My thoughts on the article are
"YOU WERE THERE, AT LEAST!".
That is far more than many aspiring artists!
And the critics took note enough to comment...
To me, that is the most you can do, as well as keeping at it like you are.

I will be able to watch today.
Hooray!
See you under the roof!

Hi Mikey,
I won't worry too much about the critic. Another source of motivation; another reason to excel. I know you're one tough dude; and your music is great, man.

Have a good show tonight!

Mikey, i sent a longer comment on Rene's blog. She asked me to comment on the article.So i won't repeat it all here.

I was there and Rachel described you as "just starting out" (compared to Pete) perhaps this is what the line in the article was meant to mean?
Anyway, you did a great job of the tough opening slot. I think that "just starting out" WILL turn into, "seasoned pro". Just you watch!

good luck

Mikey,

I have been a fan of yours since the first "Attic", and have been reading your great blog, but my first post (for some reason I had it in my head that "Others or Anon" couldn't post on it-- duh)

Anyway, I (and many others) know that you are a gifted talent as a musician but in so many other areas...Gary said it, you ARE a Renaissance Man...painter, writer, humorist...! You have a great energy about you. We luv ya!!!

I hope your CD comes out soon. The music clips are such a tease!
We want more!

See you in the Attic,
Heather
xoxo

Well Mikey, you know what they say about "people who can't do..." You CAN do, and quite well to my ears. Being in the states I haven't seen this review everyone's talking about. I just know what I hear.

Mikey, You rock my friend! That's the bottom line! You rock!

I'll be in Ballerina Gurl's chat during the show.

Yea Rene is a super star I'd say.

Peace, love and light to you and yours.

Hey Mikey,

You are doing exactly the right thing, working with the right people at exactly the right time and writing some fantastic music. It is a "long road" mate, but you may be farther down the road than you think.

Cheers,

Tom

Mikey;

Don't let this review get you down, you are a singer/song writer and I really enjoyed your song today on the Attic, Why I Explain. Great guitar choice, the sound was beautiful, worth getting in trouble for! Can you do me a favor? Take a look at my blog, I wrote a song (lyrics only)called Enough and I have been encouraged by people who have read it that I should make Pete/Roger aware of it. That makes me very nervous. Can you read it and if you think it merits it pass it along. This is a huge step for me so I appreicate your help. Do not feel obligated to make a comment I don't want to put you on the spot. Thanks again!

Loved the show today. But i'm still waiting for the loop. I missed the beginning.
My Way sounded superb!
I'll wait for your next post!

Loved the show today, lots of really great songs.

Never doubt yourself Mikey, you ARE a singer/songwriter with excellent material. I would agree, you should be selective about what kinds of venues you choose, you'll want "listening" audiences. I think the Bedford was such a gig, just the guy who wrote the review wasn't as careful as he should have been about his review.

Hello Mikey !

Just thought i would share one of my poems. I think i was taking the piss out of myself when i wrote this it still often gives me a laugh anyway.

I will be lonely in the event of my demise
Looking through these closed eyes
The shadow that stands on the broken floor
in the morning, sunrise, will be no more,
as a light that flickers in a dark quiet night
my soul will have retired and fled because life is shite........

Mikey,

I loved your playing on the show today. It's clear that you really enjoy what you're doing and that you love being there with Rachel and Pete and Simon and Stu. Just keep the focus on what brings you pleasure and believe in yourself.
I'm giving you a thumbs up.

Mikey~ Emma had just got home from school when she heard about that stinking review......I'm afraid I had to punish her for the language she used....you are SUCH an inspiration to her and her guitar playing......BTW~ I so strongly agreed with her that the punishment only lasted about 8 minutes.....HA!

We simply adore you, Darlin' (without the G).....and in your honor we took a lovely walk in the woods behind our house after the show....no worries, Mikey~

Love to you & Rene

The biggest problem with reviews of someone's art (be it singing, writing, painting, etc.) is that it feels extremely personal, because it is such a big part of who we are. This was just one man's opinion, and clearly he is an idiot. Obviously we just have better taste in music.

EXACTLY, alianadrex !!

And who's opinion should Mikey value more, someone we've never heard of, or Pete Townshend's???

Hmmmmmmmm, how long did YOU need to think about that one?

Love to you Mikey and hoping Rene is better today~

I must say, I think it's really cool that you have people like Pete to give you honest feedback like that. Wish he was my mate.

By the way, I loved My Way. And you were brilliant as always.

Loved the Pigeon song! Also MY WAY! I think a fav of mine now. Could we have it on a MP3 download perhaps?

Great show, bad words and all! Made me laugh as always!

If I recall correctly. When Pete ask what you did the last night you said you were moping.

No more moping about the frickin' review. That reporter couldn't hold a candle to you. The arrogant bastage ass hat.

Write and sing me a song my singer song writer friend.

Peace, love and light to you and yours.

Maybe it's because you are just a quieter personality. I dunno, I love your songs. My fiance and I listened to "White Stripes" every time it came on the loop of that episode. We love that one and think you are fantastic.
