Last week I lost a friend, mentor and inspiration.  Frankie Knuckles, the Godfather of House, passed away from complications linked to type 2 diabetes, which I stgruggle with as well.

I first met Frankie Knuckles at FTR, not even realizing who he was (some guy always throwing balled up paper at me) . He, Manny Ward, Darrin Friedman, Junior Vasquez, Johnny Vish Vicious, Danny Krivit, Danny Tenaglia, Harry Soto, Gant Johnson, Johnny Dynell, Kevin Williams, Kevin D Hoover, Carlos Sanchez, Tedd Patterson, Judy Weinstein, Jeffrey Allen and so many others treated me like family, an inspiration for starting my own collective, House of Musique. I learned to find my creative voice, then shout from the rooftops fearlessly. Frankie Knuckles simply and effortlessly touched every life he came in contact with, a treasure for the universe. I honor him by letting my spirit soar.
