    Milan was a great man! It has been a blessing to have known him. I have always considered an honor to work such a talented individual. I used to tell him that I wanted to be as knowledgeable and talented as him some day.

    one of my dearest and longest friends. There’s not a doubt in my mind that he has earned a pair of golden angel wings. Fly high my friend. Rest in peace. A true friend to all, a heart the size of Texas, a gentle spirit in teaching and a laugh that was so infectious. I will miss you dear Milan. I will always remember our talks and time working together. R.I.P.

    I worked with Milan for many years, and enjoyed every minute of it. Well, almost every minute. Even when we disagreed about something, Milan was very straightforward, honest and fair. He was never resentful in his acceptance of my opinion. And he was always everyone’s friend. I will always love him, for that. Miss you, Milan…

    I enjoyed my times with Milan. His stories always entertained, his knowledge was deep,and he had a willingness to always teach me something new. I can’t recall any greeting that didn’t include a big smile and his trademark “fantastic “! I am sorry for our loss and am praying for the family.

    You have been such a special friend for many many years Milan and you’re going to be missed by all of us . And you have helped so many people that might not otherwise have gone where they are today and you can take pride in that too . that’s why you always had that fantastic smile on your face . This is our sad time but I know that I will see you again. The great Jackson Five in their garage, KC wanted to do another project and you are the only producer he ever had, yes and the film work behind enemy lines you were credited with. Fantastic!

    I had the pleasure of working with Milan in the the mid to late 90’s on my band’s recordings, Clinton River. We all loved & respected Milan. We will miss but never forget our friend. He will live through all the people he touched & all the music he was so very much a part. Rest in peace my friend.
