I wish he &
Brokenheart would do a farewell tour.
"A Mended Heart Tour"
I met him at Summerfest 85 (3
days and 15 bands). It was so cool to see him live there
with the band and to meet him in person. I still have
photos of that I believe. He ministered so very well
On October 23rd,1987 I brought a friend to this
"Christian" Rock concert because he could not drive
because of a brain tumor he had removed years ago in
high school and no one else would give him a ride. I
didnt want to go because of all of the "religious"
disasters I had been to before, but he had front row
seats that he would lose otherwise, so I went. When
Mylon and the band came onstage I was blown away with
the respect I had for his music! He then preached on and
off for about 3 hours and said things I had never heard
a preacher say. And for the first time, I believed. At
the end of the show he sang "The Warrior" and then
offered an alter call. Without even thinking, I was the
first person to get to the stage. Less than 2 years
later God used me to reach the beautiful lady that is
now my wife of 15 years. We were baptized together 10
days before our wedding and still love God with all we
are and all we have! Mylon will always be my spiritual
"Big Brother" that I never g!
et to see enough. What I wouldn't give for a chance to
sit in a room and just have a conversation with Mylon!
And Broken Heart was the best bunch of musicians put
togeher. I miss them all, but I still "Jam" with them on
a regular basis!

Well, he is just a genuine person who pulls no
punches. He is real, a saved sinner who is frank about
his struggles, and I can relate.
I would just mention the three songs I like: "Crucible
of Love", "Trains Up In The Sky", and "Denomination
Demolition." I am 24yrs old and now I am into his music.
Praise God for that because I am usually not into this
kind music especially like Steve Chapman, Mike W. Smith,
and Amy Grant and so on. I usually listen Christian
Heayy Metal/Hardrock music like Living Sacrifice and The
Showdown just to name a few. But I am branching out
little by little but I never been into so much into his
music. The last time I remember hearing this stuff when
I was like 4,5, or even 6 years old! Yeah that was in
the 1980's alright! His music is awesome. Great website
and keep it up! I am glad his music is available! Thank
You and God bless,
have seen and met Mylon many times and God really
used him to impact my life as well, when I was a
teen. He came to Greensboro, NC one year on his
CRACK THE SKY tour and right when they sang "come on
and crack the sky for me", a lightning bolt lit up
the sky above him. This was a real one, nothing he
did on his own. Thought that was cool, God was
I remember seeing Mylon at
Creation festivals in Pa., a concert at McCaskey High
School and at college in Harrisonburg, Va.
I remember how he would talk to us
as teenagers (when I was a teen). He had such a soft
transition from his music to singing that I remember
listening to him and suddenly come to that he was just
talking to us like a friend. I remember that time of his
life as that kind of friend.
A few years later when I was on
the clean-up crew helping the band clean up after a
concert at our college, then called Eastern Mennonite
College (now University,
As I recall, this guy, Mylon, was walking toward he bus
after we were done and he looked tired. I think he was
ministering to students the whole time we were cleaning
up. I wanted to go shake his hand, but I thought this
was a tired warrior, so I let it go. I was glad to be
able to help and I will remember that along with a
memory my Dad shared about Connie Hopper of The Hoppers.
In short, my Dad admired how at
a concert at the midnight hour, she too, was there
meeting with people at their time of need, ministering
to their needs in the name of Christ.
I hope to meet you some day
Mylon and if it's in on the other side of Glory, that is
fine with me.
God Bless your continuing
service and thanks for the indirect influence you had on
