"For close to 20 years, you have been the powerful foundational background for our performances and recordings. You have evolved tremendously as a musician and a person, and our brotherly connection is a gift to us in this life. The love is big, and so are you. Nobody I’ve ever seen plays drums with as much power and joy. You have also taught me the great importance of wearing ear protection on stage because your sonic bombashery is louder than the sound system!!!!"
- Steve Vai
