27th February 1955 - 24th November 2010
I had the great fortune to meet him in person once when Throbbing Gristle played at the Coachella festival in 2008. The first thing he did after he saw me was give me a warm and kind hug. I talked with him a lot after the show, about music, the festival, and everything else. He truly was one of the kindest people I have ever met. Very kind and warm, simply an amazing person to be with. Before TG left, I gave all the members a hug, hoping I would see them all again one day. Unfortunately, this will not be the case.
As sad I as I am about this, I’ve been trying my best to remain positive throughout this. The fond memories I have of our meeting, talking, and correspondence over the years are all the more valuable, and will be cherished more than ever. I can say for certain that he was one of the few people to truly change my life. I’m glad I ever knew him in the first place.
Rest in peace my dear friend.
