thankyou for being yourself.
i love music.
i create some of my own and i wonder what the hell am i doing?
where is it going?
i feel sad that having only recently discovered your music you are gone.
please forgive my ignorance and audacity in expressing my sadness at your loss
Thank you for your music -
Thanks for being my guitar hero -
My condolences to your family, Can and all who have loved you and your music -
I know I can still listen and always hear anew, but it may be too sad.. goodbye
A universe of sound in two hands. So sad.

nice la madonne d utelle
merci pour la vesubie, le deluge avec raoul et georges, la patiente de shirley, les gosses, le chien et surtout ce qui rendra miki immortel : sa musique . nous pleurons . sam et brigite
My first son came into the world two days after Michael left - he listens to Can with great concentration - thank you Michael for speaking to him just as you have done to me for so many years.
Meine aufrichtige Anteilnahme. Michael wird immer der beste Gitarrist bleiben.
Michael had such a beautiful touch on the guitar. Compare his gentle, moving playing on 'Bel-Air' with the wired, churning energy of 'Oh Yeah' and you get a full understanding of his great talents. We will miss you and remember you, Michael. Rest in Peace.
michael's death was a great shock he was a very unique guitarist their was so much beauty bel air send a shiver up my spine condolences to everybody in can and michael family
To Michael in somewhere of universe...I present my condolences to his family, friends and I know that is a great lost for all of us.
I know CAN since 1986. Ten years ago I've recorded a cassette by CAN for my friend. One week later this friend told me that, in a car with another 3 friends, they had listened to this cassette. After 20 minutes they have began to scream together... My friend told me that they was very happies. Thanks for a lot of emotions. "Come Sta, La Luna", Michael?
Habe lange Überlegt(seit dem 18.11. als Ich von dem Unglück erfuhr)was Ich an dieser Stelle schreiben könnte. Aber mir fällt nicht wircklich was ein was der Arbeit von Michael gerecht werden kann, außer das die Welt den für mich besten Gitarristen verloren hat !!!
I have my brother to thank for introducing me to Can's extraordinary music. I have Can to thank for making some of the most treasured music that I have heard.
Goodbye, Michael, rest easy now.
Thank you, Michael.
I have been living with the music of Can for over ten years now (since my late teens) and am therefore greatly saddened to hear of Michael Karoli's passing. My sympathies are extended to his family, friends, admirers and the Can family, it is a terrible loss many people the world over share with you. Michael Karoli will live on forevermore in the moments when we hear his playing and when other musicians (of which there are many) are inspired and influenced by his inimitable style. I urge all those as moved by the playing of Michael Karoli and Can as i am, to play this music we treasure to those who have not yet discovered Can, so that many more to come will know the name of Michael Karoli and understand the unique and beautiful gift he has left us all.

I have a deep pain, a heartache caused by the death of a person who has made me completely happy in certain moments of my life. His music really fulfilled my soul and help me in difficult moments. I hope his soul have had a rest.
Viel zu früh!
No guitar player brought such a cascade of emotions from the fretboard, I will always listen to him, always have, it goes without saying he brought something of true beauty to the world.

In 1975 "come sta la luna" changed the WAY I think about music.
Words cannot express my sadness on hearing the news. Michael will be sadly missed, but always in our thoughts as we continue to listen to his great music

His loss cannot be measured.
Less beauty in this world...
The final end of the Can ever playing again - for ever Paperhouse
Late Thursday night 14th Feb 2002 and I just found out. Words fail me. But here goes. I first heard Michael's playing on Ege Bamyasi in 1973 and have been a fan ever since. Such a shock. My heart goes out to his family, friends and fans.
Michael was a teen idol to me and many others my age...one of the world's most beautiful players in his person and his performance, he has now returned to that place of infinite creativity from which all Can music was transmitted...
My deepest condolences to the whole Can family and particularly Shirley and the children.
On Feb 8th, 2002 there we did celebration for Michael Karoly at the museum of the Essl Collection were we performed a 40 minutes version of "Yoo Doo Right". More info at: http://www.essl.at/concerts/2002.html#karoly
Ege Bamyasi changed the way I listened to things. Managed to see the band a couple of times at the Liverpool Stadium in the seventies. Saw the solo projects at the Barbican recently, and was hoping it was only a matter of time before the band performed together again - then this very sad news.
Michael, I want more
i m so sorry my friend
Damn. Only learnt of Miki's passing recently.It feels like a part of me has died.
Best to all who new him.
I heard Future Days at age 13 in 1973, and it changed my musical outlook for the rest of my life.
Michael leaves a wonderful legacy of music that has inspired, and I believe will continue to inspire,
countless musicians and music lovers. To his family and friends - many people share your sorrow at this time.
Thank you for making me happy.
The heaviest of all.
Condolences to family & friends.

Danke fuer den kosmischen Einblick den Du, anhand deines Sounds und deiner Worte, mit der Welt geteilt hast. Mein tieftstes Beileid an deine Familie, an CAN, und alle die dich lieben. Spiel weiter, wo immer du bist...
After travelling for 4 months I have just read about Michaels demise. The only CD I took with me was "Future Days" - listening to the amazing sonic textures I realise this music is with me for the rest of my life ..... and beyond !! Future days will always be leading the way ... spiritual music ... and beyond
Michael thank you for what you have given us all... Joy ....
RIP but always shine - your music is omnipresent
Ein großer Musiker der sein Teil zu einer der bedeutendsten und innovativsten Bands aller Zeiten - CAN beitrug.
I'm very sorry.
I write this with tears in my eyes. As a CAN fan, he gave so much to us in his music especially in those fantastic pschedlic guitar breaks like "Tape Kebeb", and the wild violin in Tago Mago. What a loss! - but then we still have his music, and through that he will still live on with us, and to our children. Thanks Michael - and I hope you get to make more music with those harps in heaven - I'm sure they need a bit of your magic.

I am shocked to learn so late that Michael Karoli has passed away. I am greatly saddened as I am sure all friends and fans are. Thank you, Michael, for what you were able to give us all in the short time you were here.
Vernal exqinoxe.What more can I say ?
Love and respect to Micheal his family and fellow Can members.Keep meeting people who have been influenced by Cans work. Not just the words but the spirit in which it is done.
Micheal made his mark. God bless his wife and children.

My god where have I been. Michael Karoli is dead!!! Surely a much more musically understanding world would have made this announcement loud enough that I would not have to have been in the dark all this time. I always feel beautiful in a most remarkable way when I hear Oh Yeah and Paper house fill the air and my ears. Today, much too late it would seem, my heart aches sorely. To a man who added a wonderful sense of what I know about music I say Thank you. To the rest I smile with a few tears while I walk through the door of the paper house once again.

The NME review in 72 said quite firmly 'just get this album'. So I did. The first time I heard Future Days my teenage inner world went somewhere it had never been before, as it has ever since when listening to Can's unique music. Michael's playing was a revelation, and one of my great regrets is that I never saw Can live to enjoy his energy and vision. The range of ages found here indicates just how unusual a spark Michael possessed. I too feel like I've lost a friend whom I've never met.
My condolences to Michael's family and friends.
Thank you Michael, and play on, for the sake of Future Days....
I must say sense I first heard Can in the early eighties they have influenced me more and more! particularly in Kosmiche backwater like Ireland!I was lucky enough to see Michael live with the Damo Suzuki band and the emotional high it give me...
Michael, 'thankyou for the music'
