therealmckee In Oakland the other night, I got to meet Carol Hedges, sister to Michael Hedges. Michael is my biggest musical influence but he passed away a few months after I discovered his music. It was a very emotional experience meeting Carol and sharing a few words I had locked away in my heart for nearly 20 years. 2d

therealmckee Tonight's show was one that I will never be able to forget. Before I went on stage, I got to meet a man named Craig Hedges. Within the first few moments, I told him his brother changed my life and he broke down. I broke down. For the show's encore, I played his late brother's song "Aerial Boundaries". At the merch table, Craig came right up and we hugged and cried in front of everyone. Tonight's show was one that I will never be able to forget. We all love you and miss you Michael. 2mon
  •   gracefulsavage I just lost it reading this. Thank you for sharing Andy. What a beautiful gift. 2mon
  •   robinkhoury Michael2mon
  •   windcrymusic Oh my … these will certainly be eternal moments for you. We should all be so lucky as to touch half as many people as Michael did in his much-too-brief time here. 2mon
  •   heathergirl63 Beautiful! Thank you for sharing that, Andy! 2mon
  •   adrianbellue Brother it gave me the chills reading this. Michael's spirit lives on through you. Much love. @therealmckee 2mon
  •   feside A while back, I messaged you on Facebook and asked when you were going to come to Arizona. I was so excited when you replied back, even though it went something along the lines of "hopefully sometime." Haha. Last night was incredible. I've never felt such warmth and love from a show. My dad and I really got choked up a few times. But that encore tribute to Michael blew us away. He was definitely there and I think everyone felt it. Thank you for sharing such an intimate moment with us fans. I don't get to spend much time with my father, but we're both so glad we were there together to be a part of something unforgettable. You are a true artist with an amazing spirit. Thank you! 2mon
  •   guitarman104 You keep Michael alive man. Keep on playin. You are the most dedicated artist to his fans too which means even more to all of us. 2mon
  •   barrjays @therealmckee What an awesome experience. I had the privilege of seeing Michael in concert twice before he passed and met and spoke to him both times. He was one of the most inspiring artists I've ever met or seen perform. You do him great justice by carrying on his legacy and taking his unique style to new and exciting heights. 2mon

therealmckee Very sad to hear of the passing of Mike Porcaro. As you might know, the first tune I ever arranged for solo guitar was "Africa" from Toto. I remember hearing them when I was 4-5 years old and they were one of the first bands that I really remember LISTENING to.
I've always been a fan.
RIP #mikeporcaro #toto

  •   tonygordon.oficial He's great, rip #toto 2mon
  •   dyerharpguitars Huge buzz kill! He is likely as proud ;for your beautiful arrangement of Africa. 2mon
  •   shibby_san I had a conversation with a friend about stages in life and what music meant to you then. The stuff we remember listening to very first, to the knowledge of music we now have as adults. Those first tunes we hear as children tends to be the music that we will always listen to. James Taylor and Eric Clapton is what I first remember listening to first, and they are some of my biggest inspirations for the music I write. It's cool to hear that Toto was your first memory of music. Great group and it's sad to see Porcaro go :l 2mon

therealmckee I just deplaned in Chicago's O'Hare airport and was making my way through the crowded C terminal toward my next gate when I decided to check in on Facebook. I read the message attached here and seemed to experience tunnel vision. My heart sank, my eyes watered and I lost my composure. There are times when I wonder what I'm doing running around playing guitar to make a living. I wonder if it's the best way to spend my life or not. When I get messages like these that remind me I am helping people, in some small way, my doubts are removed. Thank you, to all of you. Be well, and be kind. 2mon
  •   meanlinabean Your music is empowering. 2mon
  •   moosemuzak @therealmckee you are a good soul as well as an incredible musician! Music in my opinion can cross all boundaries as this fan has shown to all of us! I met you in Lawrence last year on Mass street & you took a few minutes to talk to a fan (me & my wife) on your way to dinner! It's the little things you do! Good luck & safe travels friend! 2mon
  •   adrianbellue @therealmckee you are truly a hero to the people my man. You do more then you know makin the music you love. My heart goes out to this person and the rest of the world! #staypositive and #sharetheinspiration 2mon
  •   lemonstyleee The power of an acoustic. 2mon
  •   dillanwitherow I will honestly say I appreciate that your Instagram doesn't have a lot of followers compared to your Facebook, because you talk with us which is awesome 2mon
  •   iampurplelungs You always matter more than you think. 2mon
