From the Lick Me epilogue

About twenty years ago, I lost everything, including my mind for a while. Penniless and in the depths of depression, with my OCD raging, I suddenly found myself homeless. It was a lesson in humility and compassion, which, thanks to my friend Jon Rick, hard work, and Prozac, was soon over.

Fifteen years ago, I drove cross-country from the Berkshires to Hollywood where I established Europa Entertainment, Inc., the U.S. office for the composer Vangelis, whom I'd met in '77 when we were both on RCA. And I continue to run it to this day. My friendship and association with Vangelis has been the greatest blessing of my life, because he's living proof that a man can have as much integrity about his humanity as he does about his music, the very thing I was always looking for in a musician.

Without Vangelis’s encouragement, love, and support, I could never have written this book.
