A job well done, lads! // Big hugs to Charlie Wright // Big love to my mom and dad // To Fee Waybill: we've been writing together for nearly a decade (!) Your talent is endless. Your friendship is a treasure; but what I love most about you is that you're so much older than me. // To Bruce Gaitsch: what can I say that we haven't faxed each other already? I wouldn't like my job nearly as much without you. You have my love and great admiration. // To Bobby Colomby: if not for you, I may still be writing songs, but probably not liner notes. Thank you, brother. I love you. // To Terry Thomas: you are a true gentleman and I had a lot of fun working with you. Now, press the button, you twit! // My thanks to David Foster for introducing me to my wife and Fee. // To Bill Drescher: thank you for the support, the great sounds, and for having no ego. // To Susanne Edgren: hey baby! You continue to save my ass year after year, and take all my abuse. You're the best! // My gratitude to all the fine musicians and singers who appear on this album. // Thank you, Wally Traugott, for your ears and wisdom. // Beyond the call of duty: Randy Jackson and Jonathan Moffett // Luther Vandross: if you ever get tired of your voice, would you give it to me? Thank you, my friend, for once again lending your support, humor and enthusiasm. // Vince Gill: “Boy, you've got a real purty mouth!” Thank you for singing with me and for the laughs in the studio. Your success is so well deserved. // Lionel Richie: you are such a class act. Thank you for 11 years of cheerleading that has meant a lot to me. // All my love to Cynthia, Brandon, Lucas and Jesse. This one's for you.”.
