In Memoriam Michael Mloszewski September 7th, 2014

On Friday morning last week, Michael Mloszewski passed away, having completed–and nearly perfected–what George Harrison called “the art of dying.”  About thirty years ago I had the privilege of playing in a band with Michael during an intense period of creativity culminating in an outdoor concert at Victoria’s Beacon Hill Park, an event that marked the beginning of a valued friendship.  One of the best songwriters I’ve met, Michael had a knack for creating powerful lyrics and moving melodies; his many albums include two CDs recorded and released during the past year, The C [i.e., Cancer] Sessions and the masterful A Place Like This (the latter produced by Simon Kendall and featuring some of Vancouver’s best studio players).  I was lucky to know Michael; my world is a better place for having had him in it.  I miss him and will always think of him with love, especially when I hear and sing his songs.
