Artist Michael “Flint” Vujea • Date of birth Wed 20 Mar 1957

Bass 1980/81 – 87/88.

Michael “Flint” Vujea (misspelled Vujejia) was bassist with CU roughly 1980-1988. He joined after the recording of Frost & Fire, but before it was released. They guys liked him so much that they decided to include his picture and credit on the album cover despite the fact that Greg Lindstrom played ALL of the bass tracks on Frost & Fire.

Flint was also present at the meet and greet/signing session on Frost and Fire Fest 2015.

Fun Fact

We knew Flint (Michael Vujea) from the band he was in at the time (Possession) and we had allot of double leads going on in our songs that we could not produce live, so we recruited Mike and started calling him Flint because he was “In like Flint” (the title to an old spy movie with James Coburn).

His nickname, Flint, derives from the fact that he fit so well in CU right off the bat. Taken from the goofball Swingin’ Sixties spy flicks starring James Coburn (Our Man Flint and
In Like Flint). The real origin dates back to 1943, when the saying In like Flynn, was a reference to swashbuckling star Errol Flynn’s taste for underage poon-tang. That almost ties in with the ol’ Cirith Ungol song Tight Teen, lyrics by the young Robbie Garven (who himself was only in his late teens).
