Missing You.” “We Belong” “Kiss Me Deadly.” “Always.” Urban Desire.

 

‘Twas a time when rock music spoke to a generation or two or three. Of all the players who anchored the 1980s MTV / rock radio golden era, among the most prolific was a modest cat from Queens County New York City. You’ve heard him (Pat Benatar, John Waite, Tom Verlaine, Alannah Myles, Lita Ford and Cher -to cite a few) but you don’t know him – until now. Dig this series of Skype interviews with bassist Donnie Nossov. Armed with a ’62 Fender Precision and deep knowledge of rock, pop, rhythm & blues, soul, and permutations thereof – Donnie’s passages went platinum – behold the silver and gold on his den wall behind him!
