Continuing my homage to the musicians, skateboarders, djs & odd characters that made up the skateboard videos of the 1990s. On reflection there was an all too common theme of young kids turning pro, falling foul of drink and/or drug abuse (didn't really have team coaches like regular school sports), then when unable to maintain both lifestyles often ended up with suicide or a tragic accidental death. For me, many of these people were heroes of mine, artists & athletes all rolled into one, recognizable even by their silhouette mid-trick. I don't have football heroes, so I wanted to create something that would honor the memories and the legacy of skaters whose sections I would never forget. The tunes that instantly take me back to first watching those VHS tapes.
