"Although it never sold the millions of records that its fans (and us, for that matter) thought it deserved to, DCE has remained a benchmark in the land of melodic rock and AOR. We were a band on a mission. We had worked hard at putting together this set of songs and we felt that they formed a pretty seamless album. We aspired to the likes of our heroes at the time, Journey, Foreigner, Night Ranger and Bon Jovi to name a few. Whether or not we succeeded is up to the listener but, no matter what, we managed to create at least 2 songs that have stayed in the hearts and minds of everyone that’s heard them: Standing Alone and Forever Young. Nothing is more gratifying to a songwriter than knowing you’ve created something that gets used as the backdrop for someone’s life.
We released 3 singles off DCE, “Forever Young”, “Seasons” and “Wings”. The first songs got a full-on MTV video, the second one didn’t, and the third got a video that we made and paid for ourselves. It was our parting shot at a record industry that was already in the process of turning its back on us, and others like us, while our star was busily trying to rise. Regrets? Not a one. Fans still want to hear this album and we still love to play it live."
