Show some respect

Lance Von Moulder February 27th, 2013

After the death of Basile Kolliopoulos, I was pleased to hear Steve Hill was going to do a tribute (Commentary, “In memory of a rebel with a cause,” Feb. 6, Oklahoma Gazette), but I was very disappointed to see the cover.

Kolliopoulos, along with several others, gave this town a flavor and spirit that can never be equaled. A lot of musicians like myself were given the spark to go out in that cruel world and try and earn a living playing music because of him. The scene he was a part of on Western Avenue through the ’80s and ’90s kept that street alive with music and art. Don’t let anybody tell you different.

Basile, John Manson, Jon Mooneyham, Latina Best, Jeff Beck and many others kept that street alive. Show some respect!
