I'm reading an interview with Bacchus which says:

I was Gaston for a very brief time before someone made me aware that this name was already taken by one guy in Thundercats. Mind that this is not the same Gaston who was the leading cracker in Amiga Fairlight for quite some time.
Gaston left Thundercats and joined Horizon on the C64. Surely Gaston/Horizon C64 and Gaston/Horizon Amiga (who later joined Fairlight) were not two different people?

Necropost - I know...

But yes we were different persons. I am of course the true HZ/Gaston Founding member of Horizon C64 from the Thundercats (etc) remains and I only much later found out there was another Gaston in the spin-off Amiga Horizon (which wasn't around when I quit the scene). Very strange coincidence if my name didn't inspire the Amiga-Gaston, but the Gaston-books were popular in Sweden back in the days and seeing that Bacchus also called himself that points in the coincidence-direction.

Late answer, but you got one in the end!

Nothing interesting at all I'm afraid. At least not related to C64/Amiga scene Still code/hack a bit, but only stuff for personal use.
