I had a brief snail-mail relationship with Winston circa 1984 (no, really, 1984). I sent a fan mail festooned with tiny weapons from GI Joe figures, as I worked in a Kay Bee Toys and would constantly find them from opened packages. He said his wife was thrilled. She was going to use them in her version of the Crucifixion. Interesting guy and super nice. No wonder he worked with the Dead Kennedys, the smartest and best punk band.
