Default Whatever Happened to Mike Byrne?

Whatever happened to Mike? you'd think he'd have popped up in another band at some point.

Its cool if he wants to remain private, but typically we get to be somewhat privy to what ex band members are up to, new musical projects, etc. But Mike has just totally disappeared

I read that Mike married his long time boyfriend, Will, and they now live on a goat ranch outside of Hood River, Oregon.

He was definitely a teen machine when he joined the band.

There's probably a clause in his NDA that says he'll lose all his Oceania royalties if he talks. So many ex-bandmates should have written tell-all books, but nada!

Appears to be getting by primarily by giving lessons or spending that sweet Oceania money

There's mention of him working as a session drummer for a few artists, but no indication of how long ago that was, and after clicking around to a few sites, I get the impression Bearcubbin hasn't done anything in several years

y'all are forgetting about the show & cruise money, provided he didn't blow it all on "rockstar lifestyle" stuff while in the band, probably padded his bank account for quite a few years

i'm sure there is some other such legal agreement spearheaded by The Bald Lord & Friends that's kept him & Nicole from going off too much

I spoke to Mike on the phone just now, and he's got this one student he suspects is in a Groundhog Day situation, because the guy just came in for his first lesson and it's like he's been playing for years

At the end Mike asked him if he'd be back tomorrow for another lesson and the dude said "no" with this sour expression, so he's pretty sure he got it right

All of this is, of course, just kind of some secondhand bullshit we're posting while we wait for Mikey himself (thedeadofnight) to post in here with what he's been up to

wonder what he'll have to say about the fact that he played with Kesha (an interesting development)
