Mike Turner is one of my best friends. An accomplished composer/guitar player, a fellow biker, a family man, an evangelist, a youth pastor, best of all, God's soldier. He preaches through his music.  We played together on his farewell concert here before he left to pastor in the US of A...

Mike is now based in LA, California. You may reach him at tattooedturners@yahoo.com    Sometimes he posts messages at YahooRockGroups...  btw, the bass player is also a freakin' awesome shred guitarist... used to session for Wolfgang... God bless bro!

Mike is also a producer & talent scout for Rock Records(if my memory serves me right; duno if he actually owns this...). He offered us a record deal in 2002 after our set in the Pulp Summer Slam (III?) but had to beg-off due to some management issues.

Both Glenn & Mike are awesome players. I have seen Glenn in his Hog Canary days, galing talaga! :-)

I produced that event bro. Fund raising yun for a church w/c hired me to be their music director... I even sessioned for them, ( covered Doobie bros' Jesus is just alright w/ me), ako yung naka Ibby Jem Vai Blue Floral Pattern ... Jordan & other DJs fm NU's "against the flow" were also there... Nakita moba yung umakyat ng stage to give Jinky (Freestyle) flowers, at nag "beso" pa? That's me... :-D :lol:cheeeeezy :lol:

After that may acoustic gig pa si Mike sa Victory Church sa Galleria. Joey of NU 107 even organized a surprise farewell party @ CPK for MT. It wuz fun & kinda heatbreaking kasi nga paalis na the next day si mike...

I used to attend one of his cellgroups sa Megamall. I was also there nung album launch nila (Battery) sa Glorietta. This guy is really something, great person & guitar player as well! Hope he comes back here sa pinas :-)

@ calypso_13...

I remember in one of the Pulp Summer Slam events... magkakasama kami nila Mike, Perf, Manny Amador ( the Breed), & Wolfgang... (mga tropa eh)... Mike had this idea of giving out original Battery CDs in exchange for the pirated ones... in other words pag may dala kang fake/pirated CD ng Battery, papalitan niya ng Orig, Libre! How cool is that 8-)

pero my isang church n ngperform to do covers of sonicflood etc...open the eyes ata un..my napancn ako guitarist..magaling..long hair that time..hehehe..kaw siguro yun..mahilig sa wah..feeling ko kc sessionist ung guitarist that time..blue guitar..


ako nga yun :-D  students ko kasi yung gitarista @ bahista ng banda, erpats nila yung head pastor ng church na nag fund raising for this event. Pinag session ako sa church band para "kumapal" daw yung tunog. Kaso mukha ko yung kumapal kasi nag "beso" nga ako sa seksing singer ng Free Style :-D :lol: :lol:
Yup, Ibby Jem Blue Floral Pattern gamit ko nun,  Vox Wah & a Mesa Boogie Triple Rectifier Amp. Mejo long hair pako nun pero naka long sleeves ako that night ( to cover my ink on both arms ) kasi pag nag tabi kami ni Mike,  mukha kaming mga ex con sa Munti ( parang ka kosa ni Joaquin Bordado) :-D :lol: :lol:

napansin mo pala na madalas ako mag wah that night... Sarap kasi mag wah pag Sonic Flood At Doobie Bros tugtugan eh... Mike was suppose to jam w/ us on our last song "Jesus Generation" but he had to leave right after Battery's set...(gotta pack his stuffs, luggage, gears, etc...) It's good that you were inspired by Mike... iba kasi talaga dating niya eh... Astig, pero Pastor ng mga rakista, punkista, skaters, bikers pati mga rasta kasama sa bible study group ni Mike. Even Barbie Almalbis was Mike's disciple at Victory Christian Fellowship.

Ei stomp, anyone who's into Battery is my friend.

We got off on the wrong foot at the other thread... my bad.
Pls accept my apologies for making nasty remarks against you...
It was a momentary lapse of judgment (parang Pink Floyd :-D)

No excuses here... I just love Doc Rick. a Vietnam Vet, a Harley dude, Fender expert, an axeman "par excellence", a Woodstock alumni... wish he was the father w/c I never had...

Wadja say stomp? beers & cheers :-D  God Bless!

sorry for the OT guys. back to MT.

i remember the first time we where lined up in a gig with Battery was in Pasig. Woodstock sa Pasig ata yun in Rosario. They were the first band to play then. Galing talaga. If I could recall, flying V pa nga yung gamit niya nun. I still have their CD! :-D

Yup, Mike was really into Gibson guitars w/ Twin Humbuckers ( for a "Meaty" Tone & Great Sustain). Although he had a Hamer Strat, Mike prefers using an Axe w/ Twin Humbs during "Live" shows...

Parating Magulo nun sa mga ganyang events, kahit isang battalion pa mag bouncer sa Pulp events... maski sa backstage nagkaka upakan, labasan pa nga ng baril... one time, SWAT Team na pinadala kasi nagkagulo sa backstage (artist namin ang involved... yung palaman sa pandesal :-D, tsaka yung mga tropa ni Buloy :-D)

pero cool lang kami nila Mike 8-) Pananga namin yung Flying V laban sa mga Armalite ng SWAT :-D :lol: :lol:
