Thanks For The support!!
First of all, I hope all of you are having a great Summer!! I want to thank everyone for all the support you’ve shown me during the past months. It’s all been pretty crazy, and I just wanted to bring you all up to speed. Alot of you have been asking about the upcoming Van Halen tour and my response to it. It’s not that I’m not touring with Van Halen because I’m going out with Sammy, I’m going out with Sammy because I was not invited to do the VH tour. Sammy told me that if I was asked to be part of the VH tour and decided to do it, it would be totally cool, and it would not tarnish our friendship in the least!! Well it’s not to be, and life goes on. I’ll still be out there with Sam, and I can’t wait to do some partying with all of you.
One last note from myself to all the Van Halen fans out there who will be attending their shows…Wolfgang is a great kid, so don’t judge him too harshly. I’m sure he’ll do just fine!! … See you all soon,
