Bill posted something on him a couple of years ago, that was the first time I'd heard of him.

Awww. Bad news. It looked so sophisticated at the time. Noticed him on a Bronx line coming into manhattan from the mount vernon station on the edge of westchester. I think the 2 line, 1972-4. Also taki. Thanks Steve.

By the time I moved to NYC the insides of cars were covered with tags but graffiti had evolved to the full "masterpiece" style on the outside of the cars. I think older stuff by "stay high" and other writers was pretty much eclipsed or covered over.
