Mike Skinner of the Goddamn Band & Miracle of 86 passed away this weekend.
Mike played on, toured on, and/or co-produced “Make The Clocks Move”, “Split The Country, Split The Street”, “Put Your Ghost To Rest” & “Brother’s Blood”, as well as Miracle’s “Every Famous Last Word” & “Last Gasp”.
Mike was my friend. He was charismatic, generous, tasteful, singular, brilliant, hilarious; he was a whirlwind, a magnet.
It’s impossible to overstate his contribution to the development of Miracle & KD+GDB, but, in short, he made us better, more interesting. More than almost any other person, he encouraged me to push myself, to be confident, to take my talent seriously, because he did.
Mike was dynamic, complex, and beautiful. My life’s richer & a lot more more colorful for the 12 years I got to have him in it. He loved to play for you guys and took a lot of pride in the records we made & tours we did.
He leaves a wonderful family. Keep them in your thoughts.
(I think Emily Driskill took this picture a long time ago, at Stubb’s in Austin.)
