Just saying, "Hi, Mike!"
My daughter's 40th b'day is Sept. 22, so I'll be in Sebastopol then at the Old Main Street Saloon, where she's a bartender (Nikki Grant) & there will be a party for her during Happy Hour. Drop by if you have time, or send me an e-mail before then if we can connect otherwise then. Cheers!

Hi Michael...I was checking out your studio info (like to know what's out there for referrals) and noticed that your home page doesn't have the update info about your open mic gig at Aubergine (but you already knew that!). I'll try to make it down there some time, maybe a week or so before our May 21 gig to help generate some interest. Well, thanks for your commitment to music, and good luck with your projects....

Whoa - What a kick! I was a friend of Carols from Bakersfield and a fan of Marvin Gardens. I saw the band numerous times in Sausalito and I believe the last time was at a place called Saturnalias? What little "taste" in music that I have, came from her.

I kept in touch with Carol until about 1980 but since then I've only heard second hand news. I believe the last was that she was in Bako. That was about 2004. Write if you know more.

Anyway, I really enjoyed hearing the mp3s - Titanic with Kazoo! I'm still waiting for that MG album to come out.

Also - I listened to some of your recent recordings. Excellent!



January 29, 2007

Well, I came back to your site, to find a bunch of great pics! Love it!
Hey, when can we buy your CD? I've heard some of it, and I really like it, especially that song "Tremolux"?


January 29, 2007

Well, I came back to your site, and it is awesome! I love those pictures! Get the "Cocktail Napkin" job done, because what I've heard so far is ex-o-lante! A.

This site burns rubber! Can't believe how your collection of pics gathers up 4 decades of memories. Very cool.

Great job Michael. Good luck with the Napkin.

Hey Miguel - my many-year mutual friend of Billy Stapleton;
What a great site! The memories at times - parallel mine. And what a prolific picker you are. And Alley One - is smokin'! What a great deal... You've given me the needed inspiration
to get my stuff in order. Thank you, Miguel. Continued success,

My owner is a fun guy! He feeds me all kinda leftovers, and sometimes fresh stuff! It's true he's never taken me to Phoenix to eat Pizza, but I'm still hoping... Plus he is a real nice feller and everybody seems to love him. And Music? He is the best!
Keep up the good work, master!

Michael M-Box Lindner is one of the finest personages on the planet! A great Musician, a expert mechanic and an all around nice guy. It's about time he has his own website... Best of Luck, -Arnold from Philadelphia.

Known Michael since his Berkeley daze. He's the real deal. I am the proud owner of a Marvin Gardens EP and the classic "Youth in Asia" 45. He's got a 'message to send ya'! I also have a great archive of Mikey pics. Watch for their release on the site. Some day my prints will come...

Very nice presentation Mikey, as always very nice work, how about some pictures? You are a handsome guy after all, the web is loaded with sites of guys too homely to post a picture, show 'em who you are! Love you, talk soon. Stapes
