Not sure if it will resonate with many here but Alex Brown, guitarist in Gorilla Biscuits, and prior to that other NYC hardcore stalwarts Side By Side and Project X has died.
I played the shit out of the first Side By Side 7", and I was able to catch one of the rare Project X shows when Youth Of Today bowed out of a gig with Judge, Up Front and Pressure Release and they were a last minute fill in but it was Start Today, the 1989 full length debut by Gorilla Biscuits that blew the doors off. I loved their first 7" on Revelation, and the two tracks on the New York City Hardcore: The Way It Is comp, but that GB album was on heavy, heavy rotation for a long time. And 52 is far too young for a old member of the Youth Crew to go.
Do talk back

Came across the name while doing a bit of research on the Straight Edge hardcore movement, back in '89. RIP
