In the end Gator couldn't handle it and it is painful to watch. I have some friends from that era who are still pro skaters and one of them told me that could have been any of them. He said they were rich, all on drugs, all thought the world revolved around them and then it was taken from them.
I watched it today.
Really tipical rise and fall story.
How can drugs, quick fame and money make you lose it and kill someone.
