About Michael Kollwitz

In the artist’s words: Describe one of your earliest musical memories in detail. I bought one of Chapman's first Sticks in 1976 at his home in Laurel Canyon and became one of his first students. That first lesson lasted three hours, and my head was spinning when I left! My book, "Stick With It" tells the whole story in detail. What are your top 3 all-time favorite albums on Apple Music, and why? Why did you choose these three albums in particular? Jeff Beck, Blow By Blow (Remastered) Steely Dan, Katy Lied Steely Dan, Two Against Nature All jazz-fusion innovators- even back in the 1970s. If I were stranded on a desert island and could only have ten records, these three would be on the list. All three albums have ultra-high production that I never tire of listening to, even now. Find a song of yours on Apple Music that you love and tell us what makes it special. Tell us why you chose this song. “Front Street Stroll” I played under Lahaina's famous banyan tree along Front Street for six years. Watching the tourists go to and fro was a favorite activity. Sometimes I'd meet musical idols like Carlos Santana or Mick Fleetwood. So many happy aloha-filled memories :-)
