Goodbye to a beloved Austin icon, who I was honored to be flashed by on a regular basis when I worked on 6th Street at the tattoo shop and played shows on Red River... If you weren't flirted with by this guy at least once, you really missed out. I had some really awesome discussions with Leslie that I know I'll never have again with another person. He came to several of our shows and even caused a scene at one, which I was pretty stoked about, haha. He was just an incredible and beautiful man with great legs and a lot of tenacity. I've always had great admiration for him. Farewell, Leslie. You'll be missed by an entire city of fond admirers. -kimberly
