Last Tuesday, November 9, 2010, a capacity-filled crowd gathered at First Avenue to celebrate the life of Mikey “eyedea” Larsen. The evening spanned five hours to which many people donated their time, energy and talent. It was a dedication in its truest form and a tribute that will not be forgotten. The Fans, friends, peers and family joined together in the First Avenue main room to show their support, love and dedication to a person we all miss dearly.

The song is "Here For You" off of Oliver Heart. One of Eyedea's most beautiful tracks.

The whole Oliver Heart album is just too good.

After watching the tribute again (and crying again) I realized that the majority of the people I listened to since the age of 13 were up there.

Eyedea was such a huge influence on this music, words cannot describe.

He said in the track "Forget Me"
"I've been a lot of places and I've seen so many faces I don't miss none of them and they don't miss me.
Nothin' I've ever said has ever been that amazin' SO WHEN I DIE DO ME A FAVOR AND FORGET ME."

No Mikey you will not be forgotten.

The coroner has ruled his death an accidental overdose from opiate toxicity.
