“We came together with Mike, Aaron, and Johnny April in 1995 and founded Staind.

“My journey would’ve been different without him.

“The battles we fought together. The battles we fought against each other.

“The battles we fought side by side alone with our own demons. The battles we won and the battles we lost. He was my friend. He was our brother. My heart is broken. My world has changed.

“I’ll see you on the other side my friend. My brother. Godspeed. My heart, my love, and my condolences go out to his family and loved ones. I’m so f*****g sad. He will be missed.”
