Ron attended an awards show on Oct 23rd where the Vidiots Foundation hosted an evening of conversation and music to honor iconic actor and Ron’s friend Harry Dean Stanton. Ron and Harry met years ago through mutual friend and filmmaker Phoebe.
The event was to establish the “Harry Dean Stanton Award” which will be given out annually by the foundation to recognize a member of the film community whose body of work has helped define American cinema. The event was attended by many of Stanton’s friends and collaborators and featured a performance from Kris Kristofferson. After the show, the production manager requested that Kris Kristofferson, Johhny Depp and Ron take a photo together. Ron joked that “Posing with these guys can kill my career”, to which onlookers overheard Johnny Depp quip “Not if we pull our cocks out”
