I'm going to lock this thread. A lot of it is just speculation from people that didn't really know him. Gray was a great guy and a real friend, and he had his own reasons for exiting the community whi

I recently chanced upon a long-lost WIP we worked on and I think it might be the most beautiful thing I've ever stained. I miss ya, bud

a true jedi can sense other jedi through the living force. and i can sense "him" and he is "well"

According to ye olde judges when I spoke to them a while ago, he's literally dissapeared entirely. No ones been able to get a hold of him at all, and he supposedly doesn't even have internet access anymore. I think it was Dave and Larry who told me this, who I'd guess would be the most likely to know.

There is definitely no way to contact him anywhere. JigginJonT and I even did searches for his name on those "people search" sites and called the numbers of many people with the name "Gary Alexander" (there is no "Gray Alexander".) Nobody knew what we were talking about. The closest we came was someone that had an address in California and moved to Nevada, which Gray said he did. But the number was disconnected when we called.

Gray never shared a pic and refused to talk on the phone even in desperate situations. He talked about himself and his real life but absolutely none of it can be substantiated.

I think there is probably not much doubt that GrayLightning was some kind of false persona, but as to whose it was, I have no idea. Of course regardless, that person was a great ReMixer, mod, judge, and friend.

Nah, I think he claimed he moved to Kansas (it was the mid-west), not Nevada. Says "Corn Crib" in his location now. But yeah, he's long gone. Gotta echo zirc though; Gray was definitely my best friend from this site, and I imagine to a lot of other people as well; he got along with nearly everyone.

Although, speaking of people I've not seen in a long time, how are you, Ravi?

*edit* also, even if we did find his phone number, address, email, whatever, if he's disappeared this thoroughly, it has to have been intentional. who's to say if one of us contacted him that he wouldn't simply deny all affiliation? "OCR? I don't know what that is... sorry..."

If Gray comes back, I'll start...playing chess again with kamoh again. I never did get to play chess against Gray...or maybe I did, damn he's been gone too long.

(and dear God Dhsu's sig has been smilified, is nothing sacred anymore?)

Sounds like a pretty strange situation with his seeming disappearance. It's a shame I'll probably never get a chance to catch him round the forums, I'm really very much a fan of most of his mixes.

Hope the guy's doing good these days, at any rate.

MC (did some piano remixes) and I used to talk with him daily and he definitely faded out of existence. I remember he started being on AIM only once in a while and he would say that he was beginning to take on more responsibilities at the recording studio and getting busier. Then he was gone forever!

FOR THE RECORD:

I did do some sleuthing with Andy to try and track down likely suspects, but I wasn't involved in any of the cold calling. If i remember correctly Andy called like 2 or 3 people just to eliminate those possibilities. I don't want people to get the impression that we were doing a week long manhunt.

Whoever GL is, they have clearly moved on with their lives, and don't wish to revisit the VG arrangement community in any way shape or form. GL was an extremely private person, and I kind of feel bad for trying to track him (her?) down. GL does not want to be found.

That being said, I move that Israfel STOP ALL THE SANDBAGIN' and tell us some shit.
