Sean Delaney passed away on April 13th, 2003.
I only want it known, that I am so grateful to have had Sean as my friend. I can't begin to say how much he has influenced me, as a professional musician, and with life in general.
Sean was a firestorm of talent and passion. When you were around him, you just knew that you would be successful in whatever you were working on. He just cared so much.
I've learned so much from him, knowledge that I have carried with me throughout my musical career, and that will be with me for the rest of my days.
He was always so good to me, and it's been an honor to have worked with him.
I've loved music since I was a little kid, but Sean made me love it even more. He knew how to bring out the best in you; make you feel confident and secure. And, in the cut-throat business of music, he was always there to protect and defend.
He was amazing. One of the most talented and prolific songwriters anyone has ever known. He was a friend, and in many ways a mentor, who will always live in my mind and in my heart.
