Ladies, those are great explanations of Michael's story. I was fortunate enough to see him perform one time (and nearly didn't, found out about Feet of Flames being in Greenville quite by accident) and hung out at the back gate with a few others after the show. Michael was really very kind and took the time to speak with everyone. When one woman began to cry because she was so excited, he gave her a hug (I should have tried that!). He signed every autograph he was asked to sign, posed for photos and encouraged everyone. Ego he may have but in my opinion, well-earned and he put it aside to make the 12 or so of us feel like we were the only fans on the planet. My admiration for him grew by leaps and bounds.
