Michael Alig to Be Released from Prison

Blackbook Magazine has an article from Steve Lewis that infamous club kid Michael Alig will soon be released from prison. In the late 80s I was friends with Ernie Glam who lived with Keoki and Alig near FIT in the garment district. Michael was always friendly to me. The apartment was across from Rogue Music and was filled with childrens furniture. One night I went out with the three of them and Alig was wearing one of is usual insane outfits: adult diapers. Some idiot outside whatever club we were at clocked Alig in the head. Michael just stood up gave him the finger and we moved on. Say what you will about him he was certainly tougher than he looked. He did a clearly bad thing but I’m not going to judge him. It will be very interesting to see his next steps. Will he find celebrity again or fade into history? What do you think?

Here’s something to think about: He get’s out before October 31. Halloween approaches and the big question pops into his head. Do I dress up? [Director: roll evil 80s music here!]

“He isn’t the cute kid from before, or the drug crazed demon, murderer and manipulator. A judge ruled a long time ago that he would serve a long sentence in a horrible place for what he did. He has served this sentence and during this time has had his ups and downs. We, in the perfect world, have also had our ups and downs. In the joint things can get exaggerated, escalate dramatically. Now it’s almost time for the world to embrace one of its lost souls again. Those who choose not to forgive must be respected, but those who will give from themselves and find forgiveness must be respected as well…” – Steve Lewis

    Michael should not be getting out. He chopped up a body for crying out loud. If he never helped the cops with their scae against Peter Gatien he’d be in there for 40 more years.

  2. Michael Alig deserves to get out of prison. He’s not the crazed drug addict he once was and he has so many friends that’ll be there for him once he’s released. I knew Michael and he put up with more crap than many will know. Angel was a loser drug dealer and got people hooked on drugs . He was a jerk. Angel was in a profession where people wake up dead. Oh Well.
