Growing up on the Las Vegas strip, every weekend I watched my mom dance to her favorite local bands. Wherever the bass player was stationed on stage was where the ladies crowded around. Mom says that’s because the bass man is the beat for all the dancers. Dirty and low-down—complimentary words, I assure you, for the incredible sounds that flow from these instruments.
It’s an honor & treat to have a man who masters the art of funk and soul, bassist, Dino Villanueva, in the pond with us today! He was a real sweetheart to answer my questions for our Guy Day segment. After all, musicians are often the subjects of our stories. How many bluesy, guitar-strapped-across-his-back heroes have strutted across the pages? How many punk rock, attitude-served-up-on-a-prickly-stick heroines have been written to deconstruct the poor boy next door?
What can I tell you about Dino?
