I'm very sad to hear that. Spider was a true legend. We became friends a few years ago and spent a lot of time together, mostly visiting art galleries and going on smoke ups before I left the UK. Glad to have seen him last week when I was passing through London. Going to miss him, take care buddy, whatever you're vaping on right now.

Thank you Max for informing us of the sad news.

You nailed it with 'Legend' and truly a sad loss for the forum and the world.

Rest is Peace Spidey

'Empty your mind of all thoughts.
Let your heart be at peace.
Watch the turmoil of beings,
but contemplate their return.

Each separate being in the universe
returns to the common source.
Returning to the source is serenity.

If you don't realize the source,
you stumble in confusion and sorrow.
When you realize where you come from,
you naturally become tolerant,
disinterested, amused,
kindhearted as a grandmother,
dignified as a king.
Immersed in the wonder of the Tao,
you can deal with whatever life brings you,
and when death comes, you are ready.' - Lao Tzu - Tao Te Ching #16

Very sorry to hear this. I met Spidey two years ago in the Dam, and he was a lovely man with a knowledge and appreciation of an Amsterdam unknown to many of us. My condolences to his family and friends.

A legend is gone but never to be forgotten.
Tears fill my eyes.
Smoking one for spidergawd.

Take happiness with the heartache, go through life wearing a smile.

The cosmos is also within us. We're made of star-stuff. We are a way for the cosmos to know itself.

The star-stuff that made Spidergawd shone warmer and brighter than galaxies uncounted, the world darkened this morning and the cosmos now knows less love and kindness… :cry: :cry: :cry:

R.I.P. Spidergawd!

...I'm in shock.

...Spider was one of the most genuinely nice people i've ever met...

...Thought i'd manage to drag him back to the WOMAD festival one of these days...

...Hope he's having fun at the big Festival in the sky!

... Thought are with Miss Muffet and family.

...Thank you, Spider!

Sad news indeed, my heart dropped at the title of Max's thread.
I feel very lucky to have met, conversed and shared a passion with such a gentle man - both in person and here on the ACD. He'll be sorely missed. Very best wishes to Miss Muffet - and thanks again for the pleasure of both your company back in April. And thankyou Max for sharing the news. I know you guys were close so I hope you, FT and the lads are all doing as well as can be expected.
Rolling one for Spidey.
Roll on big man.

So glad he made it to Amsterdam for one last time in April. Thanks to Miss Muffet for making that possible.

Condolences to Miss Muffet and the rest of his family. Obviously they'll miss him even more than we will.

I can't believe that this is my first post on here. Dad registered me as the 1000th member back when we last went to Amsterdam and I always meant to come on and say hi to all those I got to meet.

Thank you all for your kind words. Legend......that's what we all think as well. He was more than just my dad. He was my rock and my inspiration. He picked me up when I fell and always made me feel safe. It's been a hard few months and will be for a while after but we are all glad that he had some bloody amazing mates from ACD. Really privileged to have met and smoked some good stuff some of you lovely people.

......What a long, strange trip it's been.........

Amazing how close you be come to people you converse with couple times a week ,know matter the distance of your homes :D
I have had the privilege of personal messages over the last year or so ,over a variety of topics.
Always looking on the bright side of life and turning the other cheek 8)
I think he has made me a better man on certain views and options I sometimes may have had .
He was a big 420 fanboy :D He encouraged me on Smokeboat and was a big proponent of inclusion of all members getting into it.
I was planning stepping back this 420,being July is coming fast :D
Ya! Fuck that I,m leaning in :idea:
I would normaly check with Lem e.g. Slimeline cup,boat etc. But in this case I think I,m fine in detaching this 420 too Spider ,get your thinking caps on all thing Spider this year.
If Miss muppet would lend us one of his favourite sweater,s ,pipe etc, we could set spider in a chair for one more crawl.
You will be missed mate....Roll on 420
