When Nick got burned out on the LA music scene, he moved to Minneapolis just to do a lifestyle change. He ended up working with me in the pro audio business for a couple of years. We sold equipment, design and installation services to local and national musicians, corporations, schools, churches, etc. Nick is one of the nicest people that I met in the music business. He was not at all wrapped up in himself, very humble and funny. Overall very enjoyable to work with and get to know. I used to take him flying occassionally in a small 4 seat airplane (Cessna 172) and he was like a kid in a candy store. He had been in Lear jets while touring, but rarely if ever in a very small, slow airplane. I especially remember his 40th birthday, when his parents came to visit. He made sure that they came into the office to see his desk. This was his first non performing job and he was very proud of what he was doing. He took off for LA again a few years later and put this band together. I gave him a call about 2 years or so ago and haven't spoken to him since. I guess we are both just too busy now. I need to get out and see his band one of these years.
