Frankie Knuckles Pic
When I learned of Frankie Knuckles passing, I started seeing all these tributes popping up on Facebook and Twitter and was finding comfort in them. All that week I saw posts from all around the world, from artists of every style and genre from his closest family at Def Mix and other members of the past and present communities representing house, techno, hip hop, EDM, trance, pop, disco and more. Labels, magazines and radio paid respect. I started screen capturing a few to post, and soon it became an obsession. Before the dust settled I had collected hundreds. It’s taken me until now to assemble these. I’m sure there are hundreds more I missed.
I am sure Frankie knew how much he was loved, and how important he was in the big picture, but hopefully THIS picture will solidify it to everyone else.
You will most likely have to download it and view it actual size to read it…
