Alan Roy Scott "I did not know Warren hardly at all. I had just seen him sing a few times live for David Foster, and then my friend Claude Gaudette hired him to sing our song "Just A Little Longer". To me it was just a moment of talented people passing in the night, so to speak. But in the short time I knew him and worked with him, I could feel the power of his soul and God given gift. This song is part of a very tragic history. Certainly, I was so sad to hear about Warren's death as he was such a lovely soul blessed with such a golden voice, like an angel. Unfortunately, the man that the voice was inside was not so blessed and not capable of handling the pressure of his lonely life. Even singing obviously couldn't save him from his demons or despair. Then you have my good friend and co-writer of the song Claude Gaudette. He also died 3 years ago at the age of 38 of a heart attack under mysterious circumstances. Everything he left behind in his trail has also been an additional story of tragedy, pain, and woe. This therefore leaves me in the middle with the song, alive and kicking and fighting every day to bring as much goodness into the world as I can. That song and Warren's vocal performance is just one small kernel of goodness we did together one day 7 or 8 years ago." Alan Roy Scott
