Mike and I have been friends for over 40 years..we worked together in a band
called Grand central..without Mike our band never would have accomplished what
we did at such a young age...even then Mike was an unselfish person who would
help any young guitar players get their licks right..Mike has always been about
the music and giving. I only wish you knew Mike like I do...you would be so
blessed..love this guy, He is my Brother. I'd do anything for him that I could
possibly do.

Hello old friend. can't wait to see you and work with you again at
the benefit in June. It has been way to long. I still have many fond
memories Of mixing sound for PKM and the good old days when
you me and Mike Fritay were roomates on Bickett St in Raleigh. I
also still remember when the motor in my car blew up and you
loaned me your car for several weeks. See you soon

My dear Michael,
I am so sorry to hear about this horrible disease that has come into your
life.  I had no idea till Beki emailed me a couple of weeks ago.  I had no
idea of your successes either and your love of the guitar.  I hope we can
make it to the benefit.  I will surely try to help you with this.  I'm so sorry
that it has been so long since I have seen you......can't even remember
the last time.  It's sad how we get so wrapped up in our own little worlds.  
I am saying some prayers for you and wishing you well.  I love you
cousin and hope to see you at the benefit.  Love, Edwina

Hymettus Court in Raleigh, gaining invaluable experience all the while. I
also had the privilege of meeting Kenny Soule and Phil Gardner there.
They let me play bass on a few tracks they had, that led to more and
more recording till eventually, I was a member of Gardners of Soule.
Can you believe it? I was a punk kid hanging around and they let me in
the band, WOW!!!!
the band, WOW!!!!

I could go on and on with stories about all the great times we had.
There is no way I could've made a career out of playing music without
Mike Gardner, plain and simple. I know this is getting long so I'll end it
like I started it. I LOVE Mike Gardner!

Panic is still a great record today. Many hours you and I would sit and

worked around! Remind me to tell you about recording Hank Garland
when we get together. Love you, see you there

I've been admiring Mike's talent since the '70s, when Flannigan's in
Charlotte was like a "second home" to us. Mike was playing there
frequently with his band, and I was there watching and  listening, and
he'd be there to support me when I was onstage...it seems like we
sort of rotated being the house band there for awhile.LOL Mike was
like a big brother to me as well during the times I spent in Raleigh in
the late '80s. Those were some special times and I always learned
from him, and we had many laughs together. Mike's generosity is well
known to those of us who've had the pleasure of knowing him.
Thanks for being a friend to me Mike...I love ya bro'!

Though our time playing together was short lived, and I can't
remember much of the music now, I clearly remember this. You were
always kind and considerate, reasonable and thoughtful of those
around you. But, I can't recall one single instance of you ever being
angry. I'm sure these qualities will serve you well as you deal with
this thoughtless intrusion in your life. Keep doing what you do best.
Love and godspeed.
From: PeeWee Watson                        Received April 13th, 2010

Let me tell you about Michael Gardner.
I was playing in Charlotte with a really good R&B/Funk band when a
couple of us decided to go to another club down the street on a
break. A great band was playing. Good bass player, drummer, keys,
vocals. But what (or who) captured my attention was this really
handsome, AWESOME guitar player with the brilliant smile.Then
they did a song called "This Morning". Knew we would, and should
play together someday.
It came to pass with my other "Brother from another Mother" and I
thank my lucky stars.
I love him to death. You should too.

times....look forward to seeing you again !

It was in th mid-70's and my band buddies & I from Dallas, NC
heard about this really great local area band "Fresh" and later
Gastonia.  We went to check them out and were stunned, excited
and inspired by how great these bands were and we were
particularly impressed by Mike Gardner's guitar ability, style,
sound and stage presence.  He was a "Star"!  We all became
regular fans, I started taping the shows, and we even started
playing some of the cool songs they played by Return To
Forever and others.  At the meet and greets after the shows I It

Your kind, generous, understanding, and the most loving and
caring man I have ever met.
I remember when we first met and you would say; " I'm the  
luckiest man you'll ever meet. I'm going, Come go with me."
So I did. A decision I have never regretted.
We will get through this. In time a cure will come and I will do
what ever it takes to make sure you're first in line.

Hey Mike. I'm not sure if you remember me or not. It's been a
pretty long time since I lived in Raleigh. But I grew up there
playing in bands that played with you guys for years. Paris
Red, Autumn, etc, with Dave Rose, Needham Park, Wynn Britt,
Bobby Stansburry, Donnie Sasser, and the list goes on man.
You ARE certainly a staple in my songwriting pad brother.
and we'd all head for the reherasal room, W I D E OPEN!

Haha... it was the best feeling crankin' up, " Don't Take Much",
then waiting for the perect moment when "Elanor Rigby" would
come on and just freak us out. Your version of that song is BY
FAR the best i've heard to date. Slowing it down was a SICK
idea. Excellent man.
I just learned of your condition about 10 minutes ago from
Chris Jones' FB post on your video.
My thoughts & prayers are with you brother. ... See More
Just know man that you were etched permanently into MANY,
MANY minds, including mine, a long time ago as a rock guitar
hero. I think that we all set out to see that come to fruition one
day...you are there my man.
I just found where I can get PKM ringtones, so i'm gonna slam
your version of Elanor Rigby on my cell now.
I'm in Tallahassee, Florida now, but i'd love to be included on
any future concerts/events that you're a part of in the future.
I'll travel anywhere to be a part of it.
God bless you & your family man and I hope this little trip
down memory lane gives you inspiration and so much hope
that ya can't stop smiling today!

What can I possibly say about Mike Gardner and a 3 piece
band called PKM except they sounded live like they had
several more insturments playing due in part to Mikes guitar
sounds.Mike you are truely one of the most soulful players
there ever was my brother. Have you ever thought about a

off of Wade. Good times opening for ya'll at Roadies!(at

years later and your connection to Runaway Cab and Chad

Hey Mike: It's been a long time, and I've thought about you
often. I remember you most from the early PKM days as
having the best guitar tone I had ever heard. You were
playing through some little tweed amp, I believe it was
someone's modification of a tweed Fender from the 50's. A
lot of guitarists spend a lifetime looking for that sound, and
you had it way back then. I will be unable to attend the
benefit due to my work schedule (I still do the Charlotte
Symphony Pops), but I will keep you in my thoughts and
prayers. And thanks for including that picture of Rooster
on the site. That brought a tear to my eyes. Buddy Bost

Having known Mike for many years, I have known him not
only as a highly energetic, powerful musician and
songwriter, but also as one of the finest human beings I
have ever had the pleasure of knowing.  His writing skills
are well documented as is his overall performance
attributes.  But for those of you who have not had the
pleasure of just talking to him, I can stand in testiment that
he is unpretentious and well grounded.  He loves his fans
and they in turn love him back.  I'm sure this benefit
concert will be a resounding success, Why? Because good
people take care of good people when they are in need.  
Knowing how truly good Mike is leaves little doubt in my
mind that the outpouring of support will will only be
surpassed by Mike's gratitude and humility.  If you have
the opportunity to speak with Mike at the gig, take
advantage of the opportunity to enter into a conversation
with one of the truly "good guys" in a business sometimes
populated with less than sav!
ory characters. You will never forget it, and come to learn
what a special person he is. His wife Jill is also a very fine
person as well, so say hi to her too.  I am hoping against
hope I can attend the benefit, but being a disabled single
parent, I have to watch my money carefully.  So I may only
be there in spirit, but my heart will be there.  PLEASE
DONATE TO THIS WONDERFUL CAUSE. Your heart will
reward you.  GOD BLESS YOU ALL!

We played in 3 different bands together; Fresh, Wide
Open, and High and Mighty. He is my brother in music
and in spirit. Even though we haven't talked much over
the past years, I think of you often. If you are luckly
enough in life you may meet one or two people that
influence the rest of your life. To me Mike is one of
those people. Mike and I talked not long ago about his
disease and if you know Mike at all, you know how he
handles it. To give you an example, during our
conversation, Mike mentioned he was working on a
new vibrato on his guitar. Knowing how much I liked his
old vibrato I had to ask why. He replied "No, you don't
understand. This one's unintentional." That's the don't
understand. This one's unintentional." That's the kind
of attitude, humor,and 'looking the disease square in
the face' that he has. Mike is and will always be a great
friend! Just to let y!

You know, I will support you in any way that I can. If you
need anything, let me know. I'll try to make the benefit,
but I can't promise. But if not I will at least buy a ticket. I
know you'll beat this thing. Best of luck! I'm praying for
you! Scottie
