Thank you for posting here Maggie.

As Strummer says, MAC is sadly missed here indeed.

My best wishes to you and Fergus and all MACs family and friends.

I do remember MAC, and fondly at that. I still miss his enthusiasm and passion for the Blues, plus, he was a darn nice feller...

Many times past year Mac crossed my mind.... Still, a year already.

Business went on @ 12bar, adapted, with a big hole in the community. The hole Mac left us with.

for as long as I manage my account there, Tears for Mac will remain on Youtube.

Wow. A year has flown by very quickly! :tears: I will always remember my first collaboration with another bluesman. In December of 2009, MAC and I had an idea of collaborating on Robert Johnson's "Ramblin' On My Mind" It was a great moment for me! Here is the collaboration. RIP Mac. :tears:

It hardly seems a year.

I've known others on internet forums who have died, but on a small and devoted community like this one feels a lot closer to your compatriots. He will be remembered.

MAC was always such a positive guy - his posts always left me feeling better and happier.

I think of him often and remember him fondly.

Almost 10 years now. Let us remember Mac once more.

I still think of Mac and his friendly ways regulary. I guess I won’t forget him as long as I live.

Remembered, and Mac was such a good man and good friend who should be remembered fondly.

It hurts that the list of those to remember with sadness keeps growing.

2021 is showing no signs of improvement on 2020 - here's hoping he recovers well. :fingerscrossed:
