So, this is a post about one of my best friends ever. I have posted some stuff on here before about his other bands but this is about him, the Fresh One. I have no idea when we first met but I am guessing it was in the early 2000's with his old (and still current) band STOUT. Since then... and certainly the last last five years, we have been engrossed in talk about electronic music of all kinds and he has always been a bright and positive friend when things have been good or bad in my life.
A multi-skilled human being with a positive outlook on life that most of us can only dream about. Graf head, Killer skate boarder, bass player, graphic designer, cellist, beat programmer, king collector of Gundam robots and friend to a LOT of people all and fitting this in with being a great husband. A true gentleman.
Here are two of his CD's he made me back in 2007 that still help me sleep when I can't.
I love you brother, always.

Rare footage of the great Vaughn Bodē speaking at Toronto Comic Con 40 years ago. I was only a year old when this was filmed and sadly, Less than 12 months later he had passed away.
Rest in Peace.
