“Never realized that this moment in time would forever bind us, and become such an iconic image in rock history.

“It’s amazing how their chemistry with each other still leaps through the camera to this day and if one has memory, they’ve never met before that Siamese shoot.

“That tells me they come together, and the beauty that Melodie’s photograph captures, of youth and innocence, is considered SP’s own lucky star.”

He thanked Ali and LySandra for playing a meaningful role in the band’s growth and for their unwavering support.

‘Cause life goes by fast, and in my mind I can still see you in your pure white dress in a stranger’s backyard, looking like little Mary, smiling and laughing in sunshine.”
