Rock ‘n Roll don’t come easy. You gotta live it, love it & walk it like you talk it. When it’s real you know it & when it’s bullshit it shows it. I want to thank all the people who helped make this music happen & make this album so special. Every session was an inspired blast of dynamic & incredible playing & singing all while laughing our asses off & having the time of our lives. I am truly lucky to have everyone in my life & dreams really do come true.
To Davey, Eric & Richard – what a wild ride & adventure. We made a Real Rock ‘n Roll Record the Right Way & survived to tell the tale. It’s amazing what happens when you get good songs to sound that good! It took a while but I think we got it….but just in case, let’s try another take!
To Bret & Carly – thanks for making me look good! A task it is indeed. Bret, we’ve been at this a while & you keep getting better & better. Thanks! Carly, you’ve inspired & continue to inspire me in so many ways. Cheers to the out of this world adventure that all started in Coney Island and thanks for asking me to jump on a roof.
I would most like to thank my Mom & Dad for being the best & most supportive Rock ‘n Roll parents in the world for whom I am so lucky & grateful to have in my life.
