CHICAGO: One of the Original "206" Warehouse Identical Twins passed on October 27th, Homegoing service Nov. 1, 2008, Saturday, 1pm at 5018 West Chicago Avenue - near Cicero Avenue, Chicago, Illinois. All HouseHeads with House Music as their lifeblood we are asking you to please attend because if you know anything at all about this thing we call House then you know that these Brothers ALIGNED AND DEFINED the Spirit of ALL the House parties they attended. They always headed straight for the dance floor with drink in hand.
It was like the energy and the vibration of the party went up 20 octaves once they crossed the threshold. Whenever I sat and talked with them I always thought these words: "ORIGINATORS OF HOUSE", for real. I feel truly blessed to know them and learn the TRUE history of House because they were there every step of the way paving the foundation for us at places like Den One; AKA's; Coconuts; Rialto's; Club LaRay; Carol's Speak Easy; Dingbat's; US Studio/Undergound, and etc, etc, etc as well as being personal friends of Robert, Ronnie, and Frankie.
You can't get more up close, intimate and personal with House Music than, The Chicago "Twins"……….. I want this post to be used as a symbol/monument to the remaining brother Anthony to let him know that the House community loves and appreciates them more than they can ever know and that we send out much love to the Stigger family regarding the loss of their beloved Alvin who at this time is truly, "Dancing with the Stars". NONE THAT I KNOW OF COULD BRING THE SPIRIT TO THE DANCE FLOOR LIKE THESE TWO AND IF ANYBODY SAYS OR THINKS DIFFERENTLY THEN THEY WOULD BE.........!!!
They would have celebrated their 51st birthday in three weeks on November 25th. Those of us who are very close to Anthony are planning a Birthday/Memorial celebration for the Twins on November 29th at the party that Robert Williams of the House Spot is giving with Jamie 3:26 spinning. See House Spot flyer posted on DHP.
Jamie I know you are going to read this, so bring the justice that night. We will truly appreciate it.
If you would like to make a donation/contribution to Anthony there are 4-ways:
-Send to my Paypal account: firstname.lastname@example.org

******PLEASE NOTE THAT, SEEN HERE IN THIS PHOTO IS A PICTURE OF THE BROTHER ANTHONY WHO IS STILL WITH US BECAUSE I COULD NOT FIND A PHOTO OF ALVIN, THE BROTHER WHO PASSED.
I will end with a few of Alvin's favorite House songs:
Suzy Q - Get On Up Do It Again
Harold Melvin & Bluenotes - Don't Leave Me This Way (1975)
Klein & M.B.O. - "Dirty Talk (European Connection)" (1982)
Lastly, I would like to add my condolences and prayers to the many other families in the House Community who have lost loved ones this year, as many of our fellow HouseHeads have passed on this year, with one being, original House Head, my god-brother, Fred Neely passing in June of this year from dialysis and asthma. Dialysis took Fred out in less than 6-months, so this taking care of our bodies ain't no joke people. Please do the best you can.
My one word of advice, go to www.dherbs.com to see what this Brotha out in California has to offer. I did his Full body detox back in May of this year and it was phenomenal. We are at the point where we must take care of ourselves and family. He even has detoxes for children as they are clogged up as well. And just because you go to the bathroom everyday does not mean you that you shouldn't clean your inner organs.
Read the articles that he has on his site as they are informative too... Please excuse the long post. I'm just feelling for my people right now because we are in a sad, bad way and must wake up and not put all the weight on Obama as he is a pawn in this game as well and can only do so much because Corporations don't give you 1/2 a billion dollars and not have you under their thumb in some shape, form or fashion. He and everyone higher up in politics/parlor tricks knows this even though the general public can't see the whole picture. We have to surround him with our strength as i'm sure there are those laying for him.
