To my Bubi, I’m so glad you are still here to witness another chapter of my life…I love you. Tomy brother 40, every single time we embark on these journeys together in the back of my mind I wonder if one of us will run out of ideas forcing us to just call it a day and say “hey man great run”…that never happens. You are themost talented, hard working, creative individual I have ever met. Go spend 2 weeks on an island or something…and send Teddy somewhere too. You deserve it.

To Abel, meeting you changed my life and whether you realize it or not you are responsible for how hard I went to make this album one toremember. You are a gifted soul and you have given the world something extremely special. I am looking forward to the future with you and I am honored to call you a brother.
