      Untitled title

      From Sue Weigand, friend and former employee at Star Records : "This is a public service announcement... with guitars!": Mike "Star" was finally brought home from Cuba and laid to rest today, in a private ceremony for a small group of family and friends. For those family & friends & customers not in attendance, a dozen roses represented your friendship, in Star Records' main colour yellow. Mike's favourite rock'n'roll was represented by The Clash "Know Your Rights" (quoted above) and Mike's Star Records label was represented by Forgotten Rebels "This Ain't Hollywood." The roses and the pins were buried with Mike. ♡ Stay tuned here in the coming months for info about a memorial tribute concert to which everyone will be invited.

       

      Mike ran Star Records (the store, one of THE best record stores in the world) in Oshawa Ontario, the Star Club (also in Oshawa and some of the best 80's garage bands played here, it's even mentioned in Sweat, The Fleshtones book) and also the Star Records label (Forgotten Rebels, Durango 95, Purple Toads, Ben Vaughn, The Cynics, Lyres, The Creeps and so many more).
