SK8 (1969-1993)

"A legend to say the least, a vandal to say the most... Aaron "SK8" Anderson was killed by a train while bombing near the old Budweiser yard in the valley. Sadly you are missed, respected, and will live through our crew, 'CBS' L.A." - SK8 Memorial MySpace page.

"Well Skate One was a homie of mine who went to my junior high school and lived in my neighborhood and I always kind of idolized him because he was such a magnanimous human. He had a lot of strengths as an individual and he got up a lot of places and did his graffiti art. And it was really inspirational to get down with someone who was willing to teach and who was willing to share the passage into becoming a real graffiti writer. Homeboy would pick us up from nowhere – we were just artists trying to figure out what direction we were going and he would sort of guide us and teach us into becoming a well-developed graffiti artist. It’s kinda like he was a teacher. Can’t Be Stopped was a slogan that we lived by – it’s like nothing can stop us from developing our art and becoming successful in whatever we want to become. Can’t Be Stopped was the slogan that we lived by and we were a crew." - Mear One
