A 20-Year Career

A 20-year career, in first person.

The Last Year in Ez Special

My voice wasn't the same anymore... I had to take medication and singing lessons to make my vocal chords go back to normal.
After taking some time to think about it, I talked to the members of Ez Special and said I wanted to take a break for a year, and also put out a solo album, which was something I really wanted to do. At that time they all agreed, but soon after that they changed their mind, and I found myself at a crossroads. They said: "Either you give up your solo project and stay with us, or we move on without you."

I felt the situation wasn't fair. This project was mine also. I had invested a lot of time, dedication and money into it. But I couldn't stay feeling trapped, so I decided that Ez Special wouldn't be part of my future. And that's how it ended...
