Sad, sad news.

Posted THIS only a few days ago, watch the documentary & remember a legend.

Too sad to post anything at this point.

Feel free to leave links here people...

RIP Gil...

You are missed. The Revolution might not have been televised, but it is being streamed live on the internet as we speak.

If I only had a red, black and green liberation jumpsuit I had been saving for just the proper occasion...

Sad, sad news. A true hero & legend. I met Gil many years ago & he asked me to skin up for him & share a smoke. A great honour for me & a true moment of bliss as we sat & watched the rain (it was Manchester). Time stood still & I'll never forget what a sweet, humble soul the man was. R.I.P.
