Official Statement from a grateful Ex-Hooligan
On September 10, 2012 I was officially let go from the Bruno Mars band. The reason I was given was a change in musical direction. I will miss all of the guys dearly and wish them the best of luck with all of their musical endeavors. I also want to take the time to thank each and every fan that I was blessed to meet or talk to while being part of the Hooligan family. You have all touched, inspired and revealed to me how beautiful life is. That being said, life does go on and I am a Daddy at the end of the day (as many of you know). So as much as I’ll miss touring and life on the road, I won’t miss it as much as having my daughter by my side.
Lastly, the one favor I ask is to let Bruno, the band, or anyone affiliated be without the burden of questioning or opinions. By now, Bruno and the Hooligans have moved on and do not need any reminders at their shows or over the internet via social media. I kindly appreciate it and they will too.
I’ll bow out gracefully with a very meaningful lyric by The Beatles…
“And in the end, the love you take is equal to the love you make.”
