I wanted to thank everyone all over America even over Europe and South America, even had some people from down in Australia, New Zealand to send me to get well wishes. There were a lot of prayers that were put out there and I appreciate that.
I also wanted to thank the medical staff, my doctor, and his staff, they were just incredible. They got me the attention and care that I needed right away. With all that said, the biggest thing is that I’ll be able to go out there and kick out those footlights this weekend in New Jersey. First show back out. In the meantime everybody, once again, thank you so very much, it meant the world to me. Really appreciate it, really didn’t have any idea I was that liked.”
