”This was an amazing year for me and for all the TNT fans who were lucky enough to be at the concerts. Many of the shows were the best TNT shows ever, in my opinion. Sadly, it’s not possible for me to continue with the band.
”I won’t bore you with all the details… It’s nothing mindblowing and it’s certainly nothing new and it’s also best to respect the privacy of the band and keep our issues between us. At least that’s my goal. What I can tell you all is that I tried very hard once again to make it work for the long haul.
”I had really high hopes that it would last this time and that we would continue for years to come, but it is a very volatile little machine. It’s a really great band with a wonderful catalog of music and I’m proud of all the work we’ve done and all we’ve accomplished over the years.
”I love our crew and appreciate all their hard work and dedication.
”I wish the other guys in the band well in life and in all their future endeavors.
”To the wonderful TNT fans… I know you feel deep disappointment right now, and truly, so do I… more than you could ever know.
”My heart is broken, again, but I have no regrets about the past year and I’m really happy I could have such a wonderful final tour with the band for you guys.
”To all those who’s cities we didn’t reach, I apologize. It wasn’t for lack of desire on my part to get to you this time.
”Onward and upward! Love you all!
”P.S. This is my statement, I won’t elaborate.”
