And exactly how did Mike respond to all this? Well, the truth is that Mike actually looked into enlisting in the Army. Another part of him seriously considered cloistering himself in a monastery and taking the vows of a monk. Instead, Mike found just the right place in the middle and recorded an album. It’s called: A Real Good Kid.
And now Mike faces us with the last man on the team no longer standing behind him. Mike comes to us in this album as neither soldier nor monk, but as he is, a musician and storyteller, finding in his melodies and lyrics that beginnings always do hide themselves in ends.
-- End –
