Cielo, September 18, 2008. It was a night to remember, reflect upon and to celebrate the life of Barry Lederer. An Icon of his time. A man who like some of us, had a passion for music that superseeded all other needs of the day. There were many reflections of his life in conversion that night, mostly about the clubs he played at in the 70's. It was Tom Moulton that had more recollection than anyone. In 1976, Barry took over the Billboard Disco Mix column that Tom Moulton had no longer had time for. Barry wrote the column from 1976 to 1982. This was just about the peak of our era. There is a bio on Barry that Claes has put together if you would like more info on his effect of our world.
I knew Barry since 1978, although we did not become close friends until years later. I was flattered that he would come to hear me whenever I played in the city. Especially since he has been amongst the "best" known DJ's of our time. It for me was an Honor to Play at his Memorial Party along with DJ Ozkar Fuller, another of Barry's friends.

Pooch !

THANK YOU for posting these pic's.
I really miss Barry and our conversations. He used to call me up every now and then and just chat. Sometimes he would talk for 30 minutes up to an hour. Always full of new ideas and stories to share.
I also had kind of close contact with his sister at the time after his death, so it was nice to get to see his family in the pic's as well.

Here's a photo of me and Barry from when I was visiting him in his Manhattan apartment (where it was records just everywhere)...

THANK YOU !
Claes "Discoguy"

I hope that more people get to look at some of the LEGENDS that attended this function. I also hope that more people will appreciate the contributions that Barry made to our industry.
