SCOTT: This album is dedicated to Michael Weiland, my brother and best friend. He was a great drummer and he always opened my eyes to cool music. To my mom and dad who have had to endure the worst this year. The passing of their son before them. Although it didn’t seem completely unexpected it was utterly incomprehensible and most of the time still is. I think most of us, including my parents are still waiting to get a phone call – to hear that sarcastic voice from that jaded son-of-a-bitch! God we miss him. Also to my wife Mary who allows me enough love and “inspiration” for the musical fodder I need to write these regards…and then some and that’s the way we like it. To the joys in my life, my son Noah and my daughter Lucy. They are both what keep me sane and make me insane. That’s why I love them. Special thanks to my partners at Soft Drive Records: Dana, Doug, Carley, Arik and Steve.
