Album raises funds for honor flights

Dennis Coffey and Mike Madill

Mike Madill, a U.S. Air Force veteran who retired from the Alpena Combat Readiness Training Center, recently recorded an album titled “Stranded Hobo Project.”

Proceeds from the sale of the CD will help raise money for Talons Out Honor Flights, which send military veterans to Washington.

The album features two famous musicians with Michigan ties: Motown legend and member of The Funk Brothers Dennis Coffey, who played guitar on many Motown hits and served with the 101st Airborne in the U.S. Army, and Max Crook, who was Del Shannon’s keyboardist and co-writer of the number-one hit “Runaway.” Crook plays his own invention, the musitron, on “Stranded Hobo Project.”

To get a copy of the album, email michaelcmadill@gmail.com.
