It's been a while. Lots to say, let's start playing catch up!:)
The year prior to joining Journey, I was working as a "Maintenance Manager" for The GAP here in Manhattan. As some of you may know, one of their many stores was below The World Trade Center, between both towers 1 and 2. I would do monthly visits and during my lunch breaks, would marvel at it's magnificence, it's shear size and beauty.
More than that, it was a city within a city. It was always a treat to rise from the subway station with my tools in one hand, coffee in the other and my neck craned up to witness this awesome site.
This was one of MY connections to the horrible tragedy that would soon occur three years later.
More to come..
I hope you've all been well!
P.S. Here's a little tribute to and for that monumental day the earth stood still. http://itunes.apple.com/us/album/spirit-america-feat.-steve/id461089021
POTOMAC RECORDS (www.potomacrecords.com) is proud to honor the 10th Anniversary of 9/11 by bringing you Reign of Kings' SPIRIT OF AMERICA, featuring Lead Vocals by Steve Augeri (Journey).

Songwriter, Shawn Key (Reign of Kings): "9-11 will forever be remembered as the day that changed America. Tragic loss of life; Loss of innocence. But 9-11 will also be remembered for the courage that first responders showed. America came to together perhaps never like before. Ten years later, Reign of Kings is proud to honor the fallen and their families with Spirit of America. Sung by Steve Augeri (Journey) and chosen by Saltwater Soldiers (saltwatersoldiers.org) as its television theme song, Reign of Kings hopes to touch the hearts of all who listen and remind them that the Spirit of America lives on...forever."
