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!

Last night when I went in to work (DJing at VANDAM @ Greenhouse) the two upstairs bartenders asked me if I had heard about Gilbert. Now these guys are children. (I consider anyone younger that the clothes that I'm wearing a child). How could they possibly know who Gilbert was? But they did.
