Michael Peter Blatt
was born in Wiltshire, outside of London, on October 17, 1940 to parents,
Ann and Abraham Blatt. Although evacuated during the second world war,
he grew up in London together with his younger sister, Leila.
Michael had a difficult childhood and chose at an early age to follow
the life of a travelling musician which took him to Spain, Switzerland,
Israel, Greece and Germany. He recorded two albums whilst living in Europe
and a CD compilation has been put together for his family and friends.

From Germany, he went on to America, settling in South Lake Tahoe where
he was a resident for 15 years. In 1995, Michael decided to return home
to London to care for his ailing mother, Ann after a period of absence
of more than 30 years. This took immense courage and the role of carer
was to eventually take its toll.
Michael was a passionate being - passionate about his music, his causes,
about humanity and our planet - about life. He often elicited strong feelings
from others as well as from himself. He loved to write. He loved to sing.
He loved to banter and shock and surprise - often this was the only way
he could reach others deep into their own beings. He had an uncanny sense
of humour and often used it to make himself heard or get a point across.
He touched others in many wonderful ways. Those who were able to penetrate
Michael's 'bear-like' exterior, were privileged to know someone truly
special. He often gave us gifts - usually in the form of a book but quite
often these gifts would be intangible - gifts of love, tolerance, understanding.
Michael did not hesitate in making a stand, speaking out on important
issues. Often he was misunderstood as being arrogant or abrasive but these
were just his own self-defence mechanisms of protection against a hostile
world. He was a caring, loving and very spiritual being. He was deep,
philosophical a great thinker and writer.
Michael spent his life in search of truth and working with his inner
struggles - he was overly sensitive to others and the world around him.
During times of depression, his friends and his spirituality kept him
Michael was humble and lived frugally. A true artist and
a great believer.
