“We are stunned and saddened by this loss. Life just won’t be the same without our Todd as captain of the Night Ranger touring ship.
“We send our prayers, love and light to Todd’s family and loved ones at this most difficult time. We are so grateful to have known this wonderful, tireless powerhouse of a man, and to have had the honor of working with him for so many years.
“Todd’s all-time favorite band always took the stage with the words: ‘Ladies and gentlemen…you wanted the best…. you got the best.’ In Todd, we had the best a band could ever ask for. We’ll never take the stage again without thinking of him and celebrating his life.
“Rock on, brother Todd.”
