To know Michael Davidson was to be in awe of him. He had an incredible breadth of interests at which he excelled: cardiac surgery, flying glider planes, fly fishing, cooking and of course, fatherhood. He approached each new challenge with unequaled passion and commitment. So it came as no surprise to any of us that Mike could play guitar like nobody's business - ripping out killer solos without ever having taken a lesson. Mike was a member of Off Label for three and a half years, and part of a larger musical family including other musicians from the town of Wellesley and the Boston medical community.
In January, Mike was tragically murdered at work by the relative of one of his patients. Rock Like Mike, to be held at The Paradise Rock Club on Saturday, September 26th, is a benefit concert that has been conceived and organized by members of Mike’s musical family as a tribute to our fallen friend, bandmate and colleague. Those who knew Mike or wished they had are invited to join us for this celebration of a life well lived. To paraphrase his mentor Andy Eisenhauer, we should all aspire to ‘be like Mike’.
For one night, let's all get together and Rock Like Mike.
