Today is a special day – Dave King, who designed the Crass symbol, left us last year and today is his birthday. There was meant to be a celebration of his life in San Francisco but obviously that won’t happen. What I would ask is for all of you who have a Crass symbol somewhere – be it on your body or a poster or a t-shirt – doesn’t matter which – take a picture and share it.
I have very fond memories of me, Dave and Dionne in their apartment in Prince Street, NYC putting the world to rights, discussing Jack Kirby’s artwork from the Marvel comics, drinking beers and the next Sleeping Dogs performance.
There is so much I could say but at the moment it’s too emotional so I’ll raise a glass to Dave King who is the King.
What a symbol.
With us forever.
My arms stretch and embrace Dionne, his soul mate.
All the best Dave, decorate the walls wherever you are with your felt pens and save a place for me.
All my love
