Gavin is my oldest USA friend. We first met randomly back in 2003, while in line at a hotel reception desk in Asbury Park, New Jersey. True story. We only hung out for 24 hours that first time round, but during that period we saw Ween, Johnny Marr and Sean Lennon at the Stone Pony and Gavin first met his future wife. Also a true story. Over the past ten years, Gav has visited me in Australia twice, we've spent two Christmases together, I've lived on his couch in Philly when I broke my foot and we've made music videos together... and that's just the short list. This dude's a lifer. Here's a pic I shot of him last week at his upstate cabin.
