Re: Adam Goldstone - RIP, VIP our beloved "mista bitch"

From Maurice Bernstein, CEO, Giant Step: A couple of months ago we were all shocked to hear about the untimely death of DJ, producer, night life icon and all around good friend, Adam Goldstone. He meant a lot to many of us in NY and around the world, from his editing of TONY club pages, his parties and most of all his unique personality. Adam's humor was dryer and stranger than anyone else I knew (a certain birthday gift he once gave me proved that). Well the time has come to truly pay...

BTW, am sure he won't mind my sharing this with the gang but I just got this note from Adam's dad with this updte.... Adam was cremated. His family thought that would be what he wanted. His ashes will be scattered at the two places he seemed to love the most: New York and at the Burning Man site in Nevada. We also plan to have some type of memorial established in Tomkins Square, probably a tree planted in his honor which will hopefully grow and provide a place for shade and comfort for many,...

There's a tribute show to Adam on www.eastvillageradio.com (go to home page, scroll down news you'll find it). Plays all of his music, has an interview with Adam and a DJ set. I just downloaded it onto my pod and enjoyed it in an airport lounge!

Adams family have dedicated a big old tree in Tompkins Sq park to him (more on WHICH tree it is later) another nice way to rememember him by. They have donated his huge and legendary record collection to the Archive of Contemporary Music Collection (Bob George). I actually don't know much about this collection - does anyone? Am sure Our Adam would be happy to see it go to a good home. Although, I must say I miss him playing me those K-Tel Rugby's greatest Hits collection that he sang along...

I know the "Archive of Contemporary Music Collection" and Bob George. They are both fantastic. That is a perfect place for Adam's music. Bob George has been a saint, collecting and saving rare dance music for years. God bless him. Casanova and I go see Adam every day in the park (before his daily biscuit and kiss-fest at RAPTURE). Casanova likes to pee on the corner of that monument where Adam's plaque is. An Adam Goldstone tree would be even better to pee on! Yeah!!!!! Casanova

And today Clubland reels with the passing of Door Icon Gilbert Stafford, yesterday (New Years Day) after a very short battle with cancer. He was 57. This elegant, witty man brought something to the doors of clubs including Area and Crobar that had never been seen before, and will never be seen again Im afraid. RIP darling!

Gilbert was a true NYC legend. He was there at the door of Sanctuary when I walked in in 1972, he was there at the door when I entered through the thresholds of New York New York, The (original) Loft, Cowboys & Cowgirls, Disco Inferno, The Saint, Limelight, Roxy and most every other club that opened or operated between 1970 and 2000. I never saw him be mean or rude to anyone and yet he always told you just how it was. Gilbert was one of the most stylish and sophisticated people I ever...

Just the sight of Gilbert at the door would put a smile on my face. The last place I encountered him was at Crobar during the run of Utopia. He always saved me from that front door messycircus. And the times I showed up with Troy he would make us feel like we owned it. He should have written a code of conduct for anyone who ever worked a front door anywhere.

Last night I was out in the snow in Union Square with the puppy - the city was quiet and dusted with white glitter and as I was leaving the park I thought - you see, there is still magic here. Returning home I got the messages about D'Drennan, one of the most magical souls I have ever known in this lifetime.

D'Drennan was an icon. He shaped his visions and ideas into incredible works of art. He was a friend, a role model, and an inspiration. I was shocked and deeply saddened by the news of his death. My heartfelt sympathies go out to all of his friends and family and to a community who has lost such an important and respected member.

I agree Arabella, he was a true gentleman. As an ancient vampyre myself I was always so impressed by his social grace and joie de vivre. Centuries beyond his human age.

This is truly sad. Though our friendship was sporadic I remember him very clearly and vividly. I was amazed how whenever we met he always seemed to be so much more interest in my interest then his own. At least that vividness survives.

What we know so far about the circumstances around his death. He was at Burning Man, which he looks forward to all year. He fell and hit his head, thought he was okay, then a few hours later went into a seizure and died. This is being looked into by the Reno police. I was just talking with Paula, the Swedish Housewife, about the logistics of that, a dead body at Burning Man. We agreed that Adam would want to go in The Burn at the climax.

Anna I just heard that he fell in the shower in his motel room, but felt okay so he did not have the seizure till three hours later. So I guess that means he could have been on his way to the festival. But I did hear that he died AT the festival, I'll update here when I know more.

What a great guy and a terrible shock. I just saw him at Motherfucker recently and he was as warm as ever though I hadnt seen him in years. I remember his party at Jackie 60 for a gay clone parody record he did - it was very funny and so was his show. One night we had a Jack Daniels drinking contest and for 2 little guys we really put it away. Condolences to his extended family here and to his blood family wherever they may be.

Other than through his glorious talents and that those who care for this gem of a man are certainly a reflection of his beauty, it is through these Boards and a few nights out over the years that I know him. Thus we have a premature darkening of a wondrous light in this city. My heart goes out to all of Adam's family and friends, may he rest in peace.

Stinger, Thank you for remembering that! The night was called "Up All Night, Can't Make The Gym" (named after one of Adam's records). It was Adam's reaction to the shirtless gay drug addicted clones from Chelsea. The stage set was the David Barton Gym locker room. There even was (if I say so myself) a genius method go go performance by David Barton and I. Adam performed "Up All Night". It was such a fun night. Luckily it was captured for the Jackie 60 Movie. I saw some rough cuts of it, it...

I, too, am stunned and shocked by the news. Adam and I first met when I was doing "Disco Interruptus" in 1990 at the Roxy... he was working a daytime office position there, just out of college. He was a brilliant, intelligent man-- a great DJ and musician, a wonderful writer, a perennial wit and he truely had a heart of gold. He would pop up in the oddest of places and at the most diverse parties and had the sharpest of minds--nothing escaped his notice. I always enjoyed any few minutes of...

He was very passionate about it and said that it had changed his life. Somehow the fact that he crossed over at burning man puts me at ease, this was his journey, he followed his heart, and finally returned home.
