Michaelz had also been performing recently in a new Los Angeles-based cover band called ANKHESENAMUN, fronted by the estranged wife of former child star Danny Bonaduce.

 Gretchen Bonaduce released this statement yesterday on her MySpace blog:

"I am fucking devasted that such a brilliant, brilliant, musician who was so full of life, would only have such a short time with us. I wish our last gig (which was the last time I saw him at Howl the Moon) I would have hugged him a little harder, and told him one more time how brilliant I thought he was. That little upstager was always doing incredible things behind my back… I wish I would have turned around more to bask in his greatness. He can NEVER be replaced. I wish I could yell at you one more time for being late and threaten to fire you… cause you know I never would! I would put up with your lateness because of your greatness.My thoughts and prayers are with Macy, Billy and Crystal as they make there way back from Texas. I love you guys soooo much. I will keep you posted as to any info on a memorial service or arrangements that might be made for Traci. You brought me a lot of joy playing with you, Traci, I was proud to be in a band with you. You will be missed by all of us."

 Michaelz also enjoyed a brief stint with '80s glam band PRETTY BOY FLOYD, which had reformed in October of 2004 with original lead singer Steve Sex Summers on vocals, along with PEPPERMINT CREEPS members Eddie Electra on bass, Macy Malone on guitar, and Traci Michaelz on drums.
