Reply to "Greer Lankton"

Zazoo and Satori:

Thank you for having this discussion about Greer here. I was a friend of Greer's in Chicago, I met her in 1991 when she was doing displays for The Alley, where I worked.
I knew Greer first as a sweet and really nurturing woman, and it was only later that she really introduced me to her dolls. (She always just called them dolls).
I was just some punk rock kid trying to make my place in Chicago back then, and Greer really made me feel like I mattered. Not to mention nursing me back to health on the occasional morning after a rough night out.

You are so right, there DOES need to be more about Greer online and everywhere else. I publish a magazine now, and if we could get people together, I'd love to do something to remember her.

By the way, a new mural just went up near my home in the lower east side - it's at 3rd and Ave. B - it's a wall of names, including Candy Darling, Nico, and many others. Greer is one of the names on the wall. I just noticed the mural today, which is what made me go looking for her name online, and led me to this site. Thank you again.

I miss her.
