chrome ball incident #131: i gave you power






east coast underground legend and possessor of one of the illest nicknames in skateboarding history. Ryan "the Gun" Hickey.

*UPDATE* thanks to my man Andy Stone for the High Times scan. Dazed and Confused no doubt. C-Dot!

and speaking of 101... Gino 5 is up and those kids killed it on this one... even more than usual.

Backlip and the Metro ad. Two more I didn't think I would see again.

Thanks.

Completely unrelated - but does anybody have the full Transworld interview with K. Campbell - I think it was about 98? Any chance of someone scanning that shit high res and sending it to me - forever grateful. Cheers brooks900@yahoo.com

Anything of interest inside the High Times? Wasn't Matt Reason or Fred Gall or someone on another issue?

Ryan Hickey
Ivan Perez
Justin Pierce
Jamie Story
Hamilton Harris
Robbie Gangemi
Jeff Pang
and another guy I can't remember his name doing a wallie off a street pole.

Just random stories and thoughts about weed from each.

------------------

I didn't remember an issue with Reason or Gall, but I would be hyped if someone did, and could share.

That backlip is at 10th & P in Sacto if you're ever in the area. Cards and Shao used to kill those benches in the early 90s.

Damn, with THIS lineup:

Ryan Hickey
Ivan Perez
Justin Pierce
Jamie Story
Hamilton Harris
Robbie Gangemi
Jeff Pang

I'm dying to get me hands on that issue...I'm guessing the shit Ivan says alone is worth the purchase price that motherfucker is crazy for real..

Anyway, I remember one day like 13 yrs ago seeing Ryan Hickey do fakie frontside flips grabs on flat! He'd seriously do the fakie f/s flip knee high and grab it between his legs (no homo)..that shit looked crazy!

He was working at Supreme a few years ago but I havent been in there for a minute so who knows?? I know hes got a kid so I'm sure his priorities switched up.

By the way, this site is great its cool to see all the shit I remember (and forgot about!) from one of the funnest periods of my life!

Keep it up! Maybe do something about Steven Cales, or the company CREAM from back in the day..Peter Huyn used to kill it but didnt get much recognition (Ivan Perez too)
