I’ve known Dana for over 40 years. Let me just say that his Top 20 makes perfect sense to me, even if we don’t share the exact same world view.
Dana and I see each other about once a week. Typically, we go to dinner, and to the grocery store together. We talk about everything / anything under the blood red sun.
Dana is one of my oldest and best friends. I owe a lot of my musical education to Dana.
One of the project we discuss is writing down all of his music business stories in book form; sounds easy, but – there are so many, it’s a daunting task. I keep saying “Timeline” to him.
Thank you for being my friend, Dana.
