Subject:  A Very Special Mickey Newbury
Message:  Hello. I visited your really nice web site tonight and just wanted to say. Years ago I purchased just about every album Mickey recorded. I had quite a lavish stereo system at the time. "Voice of the Theatre" speakers in my bedroom at my folks house and Marantz Amps. American Trilogy played through my system was just a teense..Awesome..! I played his songs over and over for years. I had gotten dependant on medications for depression at the time (1970's)...Mickeys words and music were so easily identifyable for me. In other words Mickey helped me get through some tough emotional times.
One night after many long years, I finally got to meet Mickey in person at the Adams Theatre here in Tulsa which is now the Tulsa Little Theatre. A long time friend, Paul Jones since high school and I attended his performance. I have rarely met or known such an outstanding artist or person as was Mr. Mickey Newbury. I am sorry that Mickey passed. I really liked him..! Best wishes to all who come here and enjoy his web site and his music. "Oh I will remember...for a long long time..."
