Oral History Information
Michael Creamer has many happy music memories growing up in the San Francisco Bay Area, such as attending rock concerts at the Cow Palace. His brother was a big Van Halen fan and had a guitar, which Michael picked up and began playing. He went down to the local music store, The Magic Flute, to take guitar lessons. While in high school he played in a few local bands and found himself in and out of The Magic Flute, where in 1989 he was hired for the sales floor. Without a doubt, one of the most rewarding elements of his job is the connection to fellow musicians, be it customers or staff.
