Mr. Coggins

Apr 30th, 2010 | Categories: Video | by Michael Williams

You may recognize his name from his work here or from one of the many other publications David writes for, but maybe you have never met him and experienced his sense of humor and perspective. Well, now is your chance. I met David through friends of friends years ago. Actually, I might have met David via ACL, I’m not really sure. Either way I can think of no better person to drink whiskey with or to watch sports or take in a good meal or attend a music festival. Mr. Coggins’s knowledge of things both important and trivial is unrivaled. You can see the video Sean Sullivan made with David for Thirty Days NY project below. The funny thing is, I actually saw this while it was being edited, but then was reminded by Valet’s post today. Thanks fellas — good looking out. And well played Mr. Coggins.

    favorite memory of david was selling him a miniature pair of wingtip shoes about 10 years ago while working in a shop down in SoHo. He came in near closing, I was about to ‘close-up’ and he was on his way to an opening and needed a gift for the artist. I had thse shoes, which i believe were a cake decoration from the 30′s which he had to have and I was not able to part with…. long story short he left with them and I found a new friend.
    take care fellas,
