Very sad, Bob. Mykk was a great guy! Of course, I only signed up at the beginning of February and it was both you and Mykk who welcomed me aboard and we got cracking straight away on a new track. Pretty much chatted with Mykk everyday since and joined some of his collabs and he mine. Will make sure I finish off the tracks he was involved with and will dedicate mine to him. I have a composition he sent me too and want to complete that. Very sad indeed and a shock! Mykk was very encouraging and enthusiastic with music. We planned to meet up for a pint or few of beer someday and will say cheers to Mykk now. All round great guy, great composer and friend!

Oh no!!!!!!!!!! (:( How could this be????? My God! I didn't know poor Mykk was in this much trouble with his health.....you just never know what is going on with another person. I wish I could have been close enough to be there for him. This is sooo heartbreaking. Lord Jesus, I pray please take care of our beautiful and talented friend Mykk and please provide him with many loving angels to accompany and sing to his beautiful songs. May God bless Mykk....Rest in peace my good friend and fellow Kompozer.:(:(

To him his hour arrived ... God embraces him in his womb. Serve this so that we all do not join to make music, we do not know when it will touch us, that is why I rarely say NO when they ask me for collaboration ..... rest friend Mykk ... we will all make music for you .. .. God bless you ... BTW: wait for us

This is stifling! At a loss right now. I wish to express my sympathy and thank Mykk's family for sharing him with me/us. I'll especially miss those "keys". Stars become supernovas and spread their precious gems throughout the universe. I was fortunate to briefly be in Mykk's path. :-) "Shine on, you crazy diamond" :-))

Devastating news. I only got to know Mykk this year but had so much fun collaborating with him, and he was so talented, prolific and most of all just a great guy. A huge loss and my thoughts are especially with his friends and family. Hadn't realised he was ill at all until his very recent post. :(

I've been trying to find the right words to thank you for sharing this since I got back from the store with wings fries & beer... We had so much left to accomplish. He was on the waiting list to get round trip tickets to Kentucky for like $14, play house and record for a week next time my wife was gone. I'd like to suggest he is being remembered as a rock star because all of my favourite musicians are here. When I go y'all will just think I'm being a jerk and not replying.

This is sad news indeed. I sent a message to his sister, Kathleen (I'm pretty sure its his sister), on her Facebook page, expressing our sorrow at Mykk's passing and asking how we might best honor his memory. I'll let you all know when and if I hear back.

I talked to his sister and expressed the sadness going through the community and told her how much he will be missed and she told me how much he loved this place and everyone that is here...I guess he had not been taking his blood thinner and was out working in the yard and had a massive stroke...

I watched a Michael Moore documentary years ago about healthcare in the US. Very harrowing. You need a healthcare system like what we have in the UK (NHS - National Health Service).

right on! We spend $900,000,000,000 (US) on military every yr... More than the next 10 largest countries combined. We have 600+ Billionaires (who pay a lower effective rate than a teacher does in tax) (on what they dont HIDE) We have 3 families with more wealth than 160,000,000 Americans... its the United States of GREED... Meds cost 10-50 times more than the same exact meds in other contries..like the UK... Many were getting their meds from Canada> (so they past a law saying we cant) Yet they all claim to be good Christians... And the mega rich stockholders and owners of corp hospitals use their extra cash to buy Congress.. Bernie cant be bought and never has been... and the 1% controlled Democratic Party will do everything to push a pro Wall Streeter like Biden... And yes the movie Sicko is truth on steroids..

Moonrunner   commented 7mo+6dy ago


That's the one - 'Sicko'. Very harrowing. There's corruption in politics from both of the main sides and is the same over here. I know they screwed Bernie over during the election campaign over there from their own side.

soo true... Standford study based on exit polls said the United Nations would have said the election was rigged at the machine level... Which is strange because it happened in every district where machines were used that were owned by companies who were also contributors to the Clinton Foundation... Our BS media spent 1000s of hours about who hacked the DNC/Podesta and zero time.. on the fact the DNC was actively cheating Bernie against their own Charter of NOT showing favortizim and lying in public about it... Your are very lucky you have consistent nationwide paper ballots.. here we have machines with ZERO AUDIT TRAIL.

Exactly correct! We have a Congress & President still calling Climate Change a hoax... (For one reason OIL $$$$$) 99% of climate experts agree the 1% that differ are funded by Big OIL! Exxon's own leaked emails from 30yrs ago say its real and discussed how to fight the science. Our own military's longterm planning includes climate change related war potential.. but its just a vast left wing conspiracy... lololol per fox lies.

Hi All - I just received the following response from Mykk's sister, Kathleen: "Hello, Donald. Thank you so much for your kind words. It's such a joy to know my brother touched so many lives. My family is spread out all over the US and we are not able to have a memorial celebration. Perhaps you can dedicate your next composition in his honor. I am so pleased to know he is immortal in his music on earth, and lives forever with the Lord. God bless you for your kindness." I told her I am dedicating my song "I Believe in You" to Mykk because he did the piano for it and he said how he could relate to the lyrics. I told her I'd send a copy when its done. Maybe that's the best memorial for Mykk...our music! That's what he loved the most.

Hines57   commented 7mo+6dy ago


I just returned home from a funeral today...and now to hear this shocking news. I had hoped it was a mistake, or a rumor, but unfortunately it is true. Loosing Mykk will leave a giant hole in this community. He was no doubt a musical genius, but more importantly to me, someone who was quick to be a friend. We will miss him dearly...but he did have the blessing of doing something he loved fervently here on this planet right up to the end, just before beginning his new "Journey" to the next universe. I believe the universe is full of "good vibrations" and that is why we humans love music so much. So the next time I hear the breaking surf, singing winds in the pines, or just a kickass piece of music, I will definitely think of Mykk:) Donnie, do you think there would be a way for you to send Mykk's sister a link or copy of all the sentiments expressed here by Mykk's Kompoz family? It would mean a great deal to his family to hear of Mykk's accomplishments and how many friends he has here.

comment.user.userName PREMIER

DonnieAlan   commented 7mo+6dy ago


Thomas, that's a good idea. I think what I will do is start a thread and ask anyone who wishes to add a message and then I can copy and forward them to Kathleen to share with the family.

comment.user.userName PLUS

Hines57   commented 7mo+6dy ago


Surely there will be some type of memorial service? And if so, If you can find out the details, I would send some flowers from the Kompoz community. I was thinking maybe if everyone who wanted to "sign the card" would type in their name (maybe in your new thread) I could copy and email that list of names to the florist to be attached to the flowers.

Thank you Bob for letting us know all of this!! I read through some of the comments of those of you who knew him well and collaborated with him on a regular basis!! Thank you for sharing your experiences and time//messages with him!! I very much enjoyed hearing how his thoughtfulness and kindness impacted you all!!!! I only collaborated with him on one or two songs--he was so incredibly prolific but I did not know him well at all. My personal interactions and the rare times I've been back on here--I only saw him comment with kindness, thoughtful and a zest for music!! That's how I'll remember him---but also , from those on here who knew him well!! Sharing music is great but sharing experiences--the things he said, did, helped, encouraged... THOSE are the memories that are so deep and meaningful to me!! THANK YOU to those who knew him and I would love to read more about him as time allows!! HUGS to all here!! Be kind, Peeps... be kind!!

Breathtax   commented 7mo+6dy ago


he didn't respond to my posts..was that because he was sick..but then he seemed to post alot of projects?..i think being online where you never meet in person adds more confusion..do we really exist?. i didn't know him..what did he die of please? i'm not sure if its like this and so i can hope if he was suffering, he can be brought some kind of peace. Brannon's suicide hit me quite hard as i'd met him in person....any kind of death i just find sad and confusing.and it must be more so for family and friends..brings alot of questions for me. but it also depends on how the person lived...not in the grand dramatic way, but in the quiet moments, the spaces in between getting to where you think you're going.

comment.user.userName PREMIER

DonnieAlan   commented 7mo+6dy ago


Ben, I did NOT know about Brannon! Geez! That is so sad. Regarding Mykk, we don't know a lot, but his sister Kathleen did let one of us (Mark, I think) know that Mykk had not been taking his blood thinner medications and had a stroke while working in the yard. Beyond that, I haven't seen anything else. Kompoz is a special place in that we creatively work with people we usually never get to meet...yet they are part of our lives. And in a very important way. For most of us here, our music is big part of who we are...its in our blood, our very souls, and thus is often quite intimate and personal to us. Yet here, we share that important part of ourselves with people we've never met, who literally become part of lives through one of the most important connections in our lives. That's what makes it hard when we lose someone from this special Kompoz family. I never met Mykk in person. But we did music together. And, I have no doubt that if I were to have met him in person at some point, we would have sat down and had a long, long conversation about our lives. Why? Because through our music we already trust each other! That's what I love about this place!

thanks for filling me in Donnie...bloody hell..thats even more confounding and frustrating that it was kind of accidental..it suggests he was by and large in a healthy state at least.. oh shit re: Brannon...sorry you didn't know..there's been a few people who were blindsided by that..it just shows how messy it can be...hard to make sense of.. i agree that some of the best collaborating on here can be a real boost to your wellbeing and sense of connectedness..being a part of a community...some people go crazy with it..like a new lease of life..

I think Bob spoke with Mykk's sister via message. I sent a message with my condolences. Mykk did mention in convrsations about having difficulty with getting some meds he needed by authorities over there. Bloody ironic as Mykk advised me to take vitamin B supplements due to feeling tired which was the last I heard from him.

thanks very much for that Joe, I've just watched the video..he's spot on...seek to understand the level of person that would be steering and maintaining the kind of system we have in place..this is what tends to lead me to believe they are not human..at least not in the way anyone would recognise..there is someone/thing out there who cares not abou tthe earth, its animals and people...how would they be characterised?...one thing springs to mind...an alien race that don't belong on earth, came to earth and can leave at a certain point...crazy as that sounds, thats what i come up if you were to describe to me whats going on in the world...total disconnection. ..or is it a mindset...a form of insanity that refuses to see suffering?....or is it the system itself that has run out of control...i'm inclinded not to beleive that as i feel there are no accidents.. i think it important to get to the root of whats going on because then we can pinpoint our energy and responses properly. i don't tend to go for the good vs evil thing but it seems thats where its headed.. i'm not sure what Mike would say, but i bet he'd be angry at it all.

yes 90% blockage is bad.. but theres an easy fix, doing a bypass... but if he had not medical coverage... out of pocket could be $70,000 or more... and with coverage out of pocket could still be in the thousands... if you have no money you our wonderful Christain nation will let you die.
