Nick Bastiras

Nick Bastiras was tutored under the guiding hand of Richard ‘Northern Soul’ Ashcroft and the Raggamuffin Gunner before falling in love with a boyish Jeff Buckley. Handing him drinks at Sine, Nick studied his performance like a bible, only being saved by the heartache of his death by Uncle Ray. He was taught to dance by Mr. Please, Please, Please himself while on tour as Jimi’s guitar tech. A fling with Linda Ronstadt introduced him to Warren Zevon, who hooked him on the junk, but also to Neil Young, who helped him clean up his act. While in rehab, Cedric and Omar shaved his head and Jackson Browne taught him how to fingerpick. Upon release, he’s still on the road, lookin’ for another joint, just another guy, on the lost highway… He’ll be appearing with a full band of brothers clinging like moss to a rolling stone.
