    On the cover of his album (I mean CD I'm showing my age!) "Make it Rain," he's sporting a flying V natured guitar. I have one of his cuts on a compilation CD called, "Crucial Guitar Blues." I picked up at a Best Buy. Years ago, a Borders book store by my house had a killer CD department, and the blues section blew away most other stores that carried CDs. That was the first and only time I saw a Michael Burksd CD. The track I have by him on my compilation is called " Heartless." I dig that video of him doing the Albert King tune, he sounds alot like Albert when he sings. That's beyond way cool!

    I just realized you''re already here. Dig your playing Mike. Do you ever play The Coachhouse in San Juan Capistrano, California? I'd love to catch your act there, I mean it' s close to home. If not how about up by Long Beach?

    Do yourself a favor and get his latest, called 'Iron Man'...some of the best modern guitar-based blues I've heard in a LONG time.

    hey mike:

    imo, want you to know this is a two-way street being a "mylespauler"

    that is, hopefully, it will be as much fun for you hanging out here as it is for us
    (personally, i do not want your time here to become another "gig" for you...)

    rather, if you want, a place to let your hair down and be "one of the guys/gals" -
    although, being one of "the gals" may not be something you are into -
    unless you are British (watch-out for them - they are tricky bastards)
    and have a thing for dressing in drag :laugh2:

    ray

    ps. yeah, Chico - one of many of life's unfinished masterpieces...

    MLP just became the coolest place on the internet.

    Seriously, "Ironman" has been on constant rotation in the shop for quite a while now. I think everyones happy for a break from Sean Costello :laugh2:

    Welcome Michael! Hope you can find time for us between shows! By the way Michael, put links to your website and tour info in your signature!
