    Even though I only knew you from the occassional hi and bye at shows and at the Rainbow, I miss seeing you around. We have/had many friends in common and I have visited your grave remembering all the times I had seen you play or just hanging out. I must say the 'bow is a little boring since you left.

    Traci used to DJ at The Star Garden and some times in character if he had to play that night. It would be funny to come in the dressing room and there he is with the girls and he is in the mirror adding hair spray. I'm glad I hired him.

    I met Traci in 1992 when I first moved to Hollywood, he was one of the first glam rockers I met! Extremely talented and humble guy! He was starting a band called Tragedy. He played with our band Guttersluts and toured with us to Colorado and other places. I have some great stories with him! Most people will never know what kind soul he was, he wanted everyone to feel accepted in the Hollywood scene. When I heard of his passing at first, i thought it was untrue, i didn't want to believe it. I attended his funeral and it really hit me. There was such a crowd, it was like a concert! I was physically sick for about 2 weeks after the funeral...very hard to deal with. After all this time, I think of the guy often. I hope the world gets to see and hear all the great things he left behind. I'm honored to have known Traci and got to work with him. God Bless you my friend.- Ash

    for the three years we were together, we had some serious 'ups and downs'. and towards the end of our time together, there seemed to be way more downs. You made me laugh when i felt like giving up, you stuck by me when, people i thought were friends, turned against me when my 'money' ran out. And more than anything else, you still cared. The most painful thing, is finding out after all these years,is that we still had feelings for each other. I didnt realise it until you phoned our beautiful 'Star' , two months before you died. I cannot believe its been two years, and there is not one day that you are far from my heart, every time I look at our beautiful daughter, I see you. You would be so proud of her......but somehow I know you will always be with her and Brittany. So I will celebrate your birthday, with white roses and drink a toast to you. But things will never be the same, I miss you, and when we return to Hollywood I will miss you even more. 'Still love ya Babe!' BRIXX xxx

    I'm in the UK and just heard the sad news about Traci tonight. It's really upset me to hear that he's gone. I had the pleasure of meeting Traci for the first time in November 1997 during my time in Hollywood. I had travelled out there alone and knew nobody but met Traci in the Rainbow. Immediately, he made me feel so welcome and showed me round, introducing me to people. We went to watch a gig at the Whisky (I can't remember the band's name) and Traci stood up for me when a guy at the gig tried to come on to me and wouldn't take No for an answer. He was like a lovely, cuddly big brother. When I returned to Hollywood 2 years later I'll always remember Traci bombing up to me in the Rainbow with a big grin on his face, remembering me from 2 years earlier and giving me the biggest hug in the world!!! My favourite memory of Traci is him going round the booths in the Rainbow and chatting to everyone - Tony on the door used to let him in for free because his image was good for the place! I remember once Marilyn Manson and Rose McGowan walking out because Tony refused to get Traci out of a booth for them because Traci was better for business!! I used to call Traci "Drink Thief" because he used to always try and grab my drink if I let go of it and always wanted bits of my pizza. He was a very talented drummer and a special guy. He was one of the nicest people you could ever wish to meet, so full of life and enthusiasm. To pass away on Friday 13th while on tour - well, that was just soooo Traci!! I for one will miss that big smiling face and the memories I have will be treasured - to me now, The Rainbow and Hollywood will never be the same. RIP Traci xxx <3 xxx miss ya mate. You were one of the good guys xxx

    Written June 13, 2008
    Today a dear friend and love of mine, Traci Michaelz passed away.

    It is all so surreal to me. doesn't feel right. as though something in this world just disappeared.

    I had the pleasure of meeting Traci a little over two or three years ago at a party in the art district of Los Angeles. I remember the shows and outings on sunset. how he would drop by and sit up with me all night having heart to hearts. watching him attempt to play guitar hero :P. filming a music video in my old apartment. he helped coax me out of my shell. made me feel more valuable than I ever thought myself worth. He was a good friend. offered me companionship when I had none.

    Traci did more than just dream. he made them a reality unlike so many of us. he was spontaneous and lived in the moment. and was THE life of the party. he answered to no one aside from himself. He lived the way HE chose to. his personality was addicting. let that serve as an inspiration to us all. He LIVED life to the fullest extent he could.

    So tonight all of us who were blessed in knowing him and all of his dedicated fans, pour yourselves a shot and shoot it all the way to the back of your throat in honor of our loved Traci Michaelz.

    I never saw Traci play. The only way I ever saw him was in video's
    and pics. He will live on forever. Where ever you are Traci, I hope
    it's a much better place. RIP..........

    I knew Traci for 13 years.He was a wonderful friend and for a while my love.I have never known anyone so passionate about what they did than Traci.He was fun,sweet,loyal,talented and beautiful.The memory I want to share is how one night we were hanging out and as always I was admiring his vast collection of bracelets and watching him talking xcitedly about new music he was working on I decided to go over and remove his triple ring bondage bracelet.He didn't even notice .After a while he looked down and said "hey I have a bracelet just like yours look!" and then he realized that mine was his.He thought it was so funny that I had gotten it without him knowing that he let me keep it.I still have it and as always I still have him in my heart. R I P My Love
