IN MEMORIAM: RON GASKIN (APRIL 16, 1949 – AUGUST 18, 2020)

In Memoriam: Ron Gaskin (April 16, 1949 - August 18, 2020)

ron gaskin - you are a dark star

part of that ancient heavenly connection,
you fuel the starry dynamo that drives
the machinery of night

a lone wolf, a trickster,
an inveterate gambler,
a compulsive fire-starter,
a hungry feeder of dreams

a friend and celestial guide for the outsiders,
a lookout to the unknown

shine on, brother

- Victor Bateman

Ron Gaskin curated musical relationships and changed people's lives. He celebrated and inspired creative collaboration, risk taking, honesty, and beauty. He wanted us to hear what he was hearing. And we wanted to hear what he was hearing! Ron Gaskin was a poet. He was a loyal and attentive friend, a badass, and a bon vivant. He was rock and roll. Ron Gaskin was the coolest, most cosmic cat any of us will ever meet. He lived nine lives, so we should consider ourselves lucky. - rC
