May 26, 2018 "I am so honored to have known you. So saddened of your passing.
Rest in peace my friend.
Suzette" - Suzette Ricci (Nashville, TN)
January 17, 2018 "I can't believe it's 1/18/18 and I was just playing "Wings" on Utube and saw in the comments he passed away, I couldn't believe it, don't know where to begin, last time I seen him was in Boulder City NV where Desi Arnez jr who was also a big fan of Michael's brought him to his theatre for a concert and I talked with MJ after the show and he remembered when we met at the Jan-Kris winery in Templeton CA where I went to see Kip Attaway and MJ was an added bonus..I can't tell you what an influence he's been on my musical life and I never understood why he wasn't in the superstar status..such a beautiful man and an amazing and underappreciated talent. Sorry I'm still blown away as I'm writing this, next time I sing Wings, or Bristle Cone Pine or the Moon is Still Over, it'll take on a new meaning. My late condolences to the Johnson family and I'm sure that you treasured all the memories and joy he's brought to so many people, I hope he's looking down on me when I'm singing his songs...RIP Michael...

Thank goodness; technology will let Michael live in our Souls forever. I sing his songs to myself constantly. What a voice...what a man!"

November 21, 2017 "An old boyfriend played me Michael's self-titled album in the 70's and although Bluer than Blue was the big hit, When You Come Home remains my favorite song some 40 years later. Sorry to hear of his passing and wish I had seen him in concert. RIP" - Kay (OK)
