Home / 12/12/12 / 12/12/12 Summer Spotlight on Long Island Musicians Featuring: Richie Naso

 

NAME:
Richie Naso








 

ZODIAC SIGN:
Virgo 

BAND:
Desert Highway 

HOT PINK OR BLACK:
Black, it’s just more betterer!

 










HOW DID YOU GET STARTED IN MUSIC:

I heard Led Zeppelin II for the first time when I was 10 & knew I had to be a guitarist in a band.

FAVORITE TOOLS FOR YOUR TRADE:

I’ll bring different pieces of gear to gigs depending on the situation. Most often I’ll use a Gibson & a Fender guitar (models may vary), a pedalboard which proudly displays my obsessive-compulsive nature & an amp of appropriate wattage for the venue & band. Honorable mention must go to my ’92 SG which has been my #1 for the last 20 years. She’s been everywhere & has taken a heap of abuse, so I’ve semi-retired her. 

WHAT QUALITY ABOUT MUSIC MAKES IT ALL WORTH IT FOR YOU:

Wow, that a tough one because there’s so much that I could write a book. I’d say the best thing is the energy flow on the best gigs where the band put out energy to the audience and the audience gives back more energy to the band which goes back to the audience at ever increasing levels. 

WHAT CAN LONG ISLAND EXPECT FROM YOU IN 2012:
Just more gigs really.

FREE SHOUT OUT:
I’d like to extend a heartfelt thank you to everyone that comes out to see all the acts that I work with & the acts themselves: Desert Highway, Paul Scollo, Gizzo, and also Fullhouse (where I’m occasionally brought in as a second guitarist).
