Ohhhh no. So sad to read this. My fellow classmate Peter Russell has passed away. We were together at Seattle’s Roosevelt High School, Class of 1979. I’m so glad I was able to hang out with him at our last Roosevelt High School reunion.
What a nice guy. I remember him well, with his sax, always playing jazz.
(R.I.P.) my brother & if you see Raymond Maynor tell him I miss & love him too.

Nick & I go back over 35 years, first as a business relationship & then becoming close friends. He's the Tony Soprano of music promotions! I still roll with this icon.

Despite facing personal challenges, including a battle with cancer and living with legal blindness, Nick has remained resilient. He’s continued to make significant contributions to the music world. Now residing in Palm Beach, Florida, Nick finds himself in a position where he requires financial assistance.

Stacks Image 6861

Now, it's our turn to give back to someone who has given so much to the world of music. If you've done business with him, then you'll agree with me.
I could use your help by donating, even if it's just $5.00 or $25.00.

Let's come together as a community to support a true music industry legend and ensure that his legacy continues to inspire generations to come.

Nick Is In Need Of Food, Clothing, Shelter, Medication, Transportation and Assistance With His Day To Day Expenses.

Thank you for your help or as Nick would say, "GRAZIE!" Nasty-Nes

On Thursday we were at Rainier Avenue Radio’s Black History Month Museum at 4916 Rainier Ave South. Sheila Locke, Sir Mix-A-Lot & I reunited for the first time since NASTYMIX Records closed in 1992. We shared behind-the-scenes look at the birth, creation & fall of NASTYMIX Records!
Friday found us at the
206 Zulu’s 20th Anniversary event at Madame Lou’s (2505 1st Avenue).
Both nights were memorable!
