As some of you have noticed I have not been in DLC for most of 2012. I’d like to take this moment to let everyone know that I officially won’t be returning to the band. I’d like to thank Kim, Stewie, Licka, Scott and Tom for an amazing journey over the last 8 years.
I’d like to say an extra special thanks to Mr Kim Benzie (aka Benzel Washington). The friendship and musical bond we’ve shared since our random meeting in 2004 (no, it wasn’t a public toilet) is a rare thing and I feel very lucky to have experienced that. You will always be a role model for hard work, determination and general life ass-kickery. Also not to mention the way you handled some things this year which would have driven anyone else to strangle me. You looked out for me like a true brother and I’ll never forget that.
I’d also like to sneak in a big thank you to Forry, Ev McHugh, Vinnie, Pete, Jim, Rog, Griff, Tonks, Tiff, Stevie, Greg, Adrian, Danielle, AJ, Ernie, Loosh, Owen, Julia, Edwin, Kurt, Ben, Adam, Chantelle, Tyson, Forbes, Jarrad, Cameron Gray, Matt Bartlem and the amazing fans that made the DLC ride possible.
Love you all (in the most manly way possible)
Have an amazing 2013
Peace out y’all
