Willie would like to thank:

My beloved Brandy whose constant love and support carries me through every day and whom without, nothing would be possible. My T-Man for reminding me that patience is a virtue and a worthwhile endeavor, for his love and admiration are unequaled. Ma and Pops Adler who have always been behind everything I do, sometimes even I have to question why, but I love them for it. Ma and Pop Hopkins for taking me in as one of their own and for showing me such genuine love, it reminds me just how lucky I am. Devin Townsend for pushing me to play as well as I could. Chris, my brother, whom I love dearly and if it weren't for him none of this would be worth doing. Jamey A. (the little Adler) for reminding me just how funny motherfuckers can be, I love you. The rest of the boys in the band, you guys always do fucking great and have never failed to impress me at some point along the way; thank you for giving us all the opportunity to do this. To God Forbid (who are probably on the 'Blacker than 'yo momma Tour') thank you guys for all the good times and we better see you soon. Thank you to Steve Austin whose contributions are always at the right time and right on point. E.J. and Dan, you guys know what you've done...thanks. To anyone I forgot, I'm sorry and I'll thank you when I see you.
Chris would like to thank:

Julie Cyr-Adler for passion, faith, inspiration, love and strength. I love and admire you. Pat and Jim for guidance, trust, support and belief. My brother James for helping remind me why it is that I try so hard.

'In the end, we will remember not the words of our enemies, but the silence of our friends.' -- Martin Luther King Jr.

The individuals that surround me in this endeavor are monumental. Will is the talent I strive for and respect, our bond and our music are as strong as our blood. Campbell is the best of friends, confidant and comedian without whom, I could not continue in this. Mark is the simultaneous balance and display of reason and chaos helping keep the rest of us centered. Randy is the black sheep - yang to the ying.

Together we persevere; these are the tongues of men and angels.

The LOG Crew and Family: EJ, Dan Fitzgerald, Tim Borror, Dennis Solomon, David Allen, Ken Adams, Judd Praether, Dusty Ray Symonds, Jeff Cohen, John Murden, Lewis Foster.

Our friends at home in Richmond, VA and everyone around the world that has helped, believed in and cared enough to treat us fairly.

The most important thanks go to you. Thank you for listening. Thank you for your appreciation, it is reciprocated.
