It is I.....Errol Sprague, producer of this poignant requiem, and the true force behind Danny Cohen. While he watches the Weather Channel and Latino soaps with the sound down (smoking 'no stone', and petting the hair of an Orange Creme and tequila dog, on a used tobacconated sofa), I wrote these songs and got him on the county bus to the studio.
