    Default RIP Mark Downing of Nantucket

    Don't know how "national" they were and if any of my people here remember them, but they were based here in NC.

    Made some good music. Toured and opened for Journey, KISS, Boston, etc. back in the day.

    Heartbreaker is probably their biggest song.

    I asked a ref if he could give me a technical foul for thinking bad things about him. He said, of course not. I said, well, I think you stink. And he gave me a technical. You can't trust em. -

    I remember hearing about this band back in the late 70’s/early 80’s, when FM rock stations were local and excellent, and rock festivals were happening all of the time. Nantucket were part of some of those festivals.

    Theres a chance I saw this band and never knew it.
    EVH 1979: Well, actually it's not much of a vacation, because we run everything ourselves. We design our own album cover, we have to be in the office every day to sign checks - the whole corporation revolves around us. Nothing can be done without our approval. We even have photo approval.
