I heard the news from JoAnna that you're taking a big step. Man,
you've got balls! (by definition, partly what makes you a man...you
know, in the strictest sense). I've always admired you, and the
strength you're showing now...is off. the. freaking. CHARTS!
I think of you often. You were there for many of my highlights and
happy memories from high school years: Concert and Jazz Choir, DC
trip, Harry Jr. stylings at an Amy Green party (and most other
places), Mr. Big, Happy Birthday crooning to Vicki Buda, My Fair Lady
(the Flow!)...and of course Wayne's World. Magnificoooooo-o-o!
You helped me tap into new levels of creativity, and gave me guidance
and confidence to actually stand up and perform in front of people,
and I thank you for that. It helped me grow up in many ways. Plus,
it was always fun to hang out with someone who was an even bigger
wiseass than I was back then!
I call you the Solo-man, but you know you're never alone. I am lucky
to have had such a wonderful mentor and friend at a time in life when
everyone can sorely use one. You are a beautiful human being Ross,
and I thank you for all of the beautiful music you've made -- in both
the literal sense, and in simply improving this thing we call life. I
am honored to be a member of the Three White Boyz, and look forward to
recording that reunion tour album we always said we were going to make
White Boyz 4 Life!!!
