Hi Michael ! This is Stan the cab driver that took you home from Midway. I used to tell people that 90 bucks was my best tip ever. That is not true anymore.The cd you gave me is the best tip. My favorite songs are 3) Ain't over you yet" 2)" My father's son" and # 1)" I shall be healed". Do you realize that could be a huge hit on Contemporary Christian stations if you teak the lyrics a tad so that it is overtly about God instead of both God and a woman. I have met alot of wannabe artists. You sir are the real deal ! We once had an aspiring musician named Ray at the high school I attended. He wanted to be a musician professionally. Some tried to dsicourage him. Rough business and all. His last name was Manzarek, one of the founders of The Doors.When is your next local concert ? I am assembling a small army to bring with me. I am a fan. I describe you as a cross between Springsteen & Bob Dylan (with a good voice ). I will drive you & Heather anytime! Stan
Thanks so much man.....you were priceless. If i wasn't so exhausted i would have been more interactive with your great stories....thanks for a most entertaining ride.
Dear Michael, when you look back at some of your earliest works do you feel you would re- write them or did they capture the essence of how you felt at that time perfectly?Michael McDermott responded on 03/23/2014 Next question
Hi Michael - I'm a long time fan from the Chicago suburbs who's had the honor of meeting & hanging out with your father for a bit after your show at Harper College sometime around 1994-95. What a trip! Anyway I just recently heard a mid-90s Dylan tune from his album "Time Out Of Mind" called "Make You Feel My Love". My immediate reaction was "Michael McDermott NEEDS to sing this". So brother - I insist you check it out - if you already don't know it by heart. I think it'd sound especially amazing if you would perform it. Thanks!Michael McDermott responded on 03/23/2014
