On Halloween nite 2008, my brother was attacked in a similar way as he and his wife walked to the Subway from the Village. She had just stepped up off the curb and a group of men swarmed him and in less than three minutes, they had fractured every bone in his face, ruined the site in one of his eyes and left him in critical condition on the pavement. He was sober and had provoked no one. His wife dragged him up the street to St. Vincents where he spent days in the ICU and then weeks in another hospital for reconstructive surgery. When his wife approached a copy in the emerceny room at St. Vincents, she was told to file a report at the station. Almost a full day later the cops came to his room to take a statement from my barelyb conscious brother - and they did absolutely no investigation. No checking of video cameras - nothing. They just couldn't be bothered. Despite my brother almost dieing from his injuries, there wasn't one press story. Nothing was stolen. No comments were exchanged. His wife had let go of his hand seconds early to stop and look instide a window. They beat him for the pleasure of it and almost murdered him - but merely left him permanently disabled and unable to find work. Maybe now the stupid NYPD will check out the problem of these roving gangs and start doing something to stop them - this has been going on a long time but nothing ever happens until someone important or politically convenient gets hurt.

A gun would have done him no good. These gangs attack without reason or warning. The biggest guy takes his fist and slams it down sideways across your face before you can think, let alone react - the idea is to disable you and drop you to the ground. Then they all join in for a few minutes of pleasurable beat-down where they kick and stomp you. The idea is to inflict as much damage as quickly as possible and leave you unable to get up. Guns. Forget about it.

I am shocked at how many people don't know who he is. Sad. He is one of the most talented artists I have ever seen. In his very early days, playing small shows, he always hung out outside venues talking with fans. He once sat on the sidewalk and played a song with a random fan in line, then invited him on stage to play a song during the show. I can't think of a kinder, friendlier artist. It's horrible that this happened to him. :(

Where were his friends that he was with during this time? Why didn't any witnesses call the police during this incident? Why won't any witnesses come forward? Why did he go twelve blocks and somehow get hit by a cab? Instead of the fact that he was on the backend of a beating, the question is why? Him being White in the East Village isn't a good answer. Him being a Hipster is funny but not it either. If anybody who saw this happen didn't call the cops or help him, it sounds a bit suspicious. Maybe he should have had security. You may want to look into the fact that his friends evaporated when this happened or that beer muscles affect the brain and mouth, or that nobody seemed to report it. Too fishy to just assume that nobody would say anything and not call the cops. And HE himself didn't call the cops. There is a time to be tough and a time to be smart. He chose wrong that night by not calling the cops and filing a report immediately.

It's terrible to read some of the mean comments people have been writing about Gavin. I've met him and he is a really nice guy and an amazing artist, he needs our prayers and support right now, not people saying ugly things about him who have never even heard any of his music. Havent you ever heard the saying "If you don't have anything nice to say, don't say anything at all?"
