Awards

Michael Shrieve was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1998.
In 2005, Michael received the Guitar Center’s first annual “Lifetime Achievement Award.”
”I owe Michael a lot; He's the one who turned me onto John Coltrane and Miles Davis. I just wanted to play blues until Michael came. He opened my eyes and my ears and my heart to a lot of things. Some drummers only have chops, but Michael Shrieve has vision. Michael is like a box of crayons; he has all the colors.” Carlos Santana
