41. Gary Warnett
Who And Why: Writer, storyteller, historian
For more than 10 years at Crooked Tongues (along with many other outlets), Gary has been providing great insight to new products as well as storytelling of the historic rereleases—which he also delves into on his esoteric blog. Recognized face-to-face and known on a first name basis with execs at top level brands, Gary has more influence than his humble nature will allow him to admit.
