Where I Go Out

Behind the Scenes

So many of us lost a sense of
"So many of us lost a sense of balance today. My heart goes out to those who knew him well, his family, friends, crew and fans. . . Personally Tony’s words, his praise and or critique of my work just always registered as somehow more important. It was a stamp of validation. When he said good things you felt like you impressed a close family member. When his critique came, you appreciated him calling it out and it forced you to look in the mirror and be better. He made us better in so many ways. . . He was authentic well before it became a brand strategy. . . His personal arc of redemption and career evolution was inspiring. As a fan, I just enjoyed watching that growth. . . He just gave all of us, who may of felt like just a simple good for nothing cook; hope. . . He will be missed, and is irreplaceable...
