The Rascals Dino Danelli on the air

There's an amazing number of musicians listening to their inner calling, "Help get the roots of Rock into the veins of tomorrows presentation." Little Steven Van Zandt isn't on a kick. He's part of the movement. Having the passion to perform may look like a seed at birth but someone or a list of already in tune players have the necessary something special to crack the shell. Once free...there's gonna come a time when music softly screams, "Your turn..." The Rascals/Young Rascals were the band that popped that Van Zandt cherry. I sure didn't get into radio to produce commercials. Being live on that two speaker stage has often been accused on my artist eye view of what Simmons and Stanley ripped from their souls and threw out that 1977 night in Billings, Montana. The problem is...I was spinning 45's and plugging in 8-track tapes when having Alphabet's for breakfast came with an Archies song attached to the back.\\ Everything you do is attached to music. It's roots. It's vibration on paved soil. Who broke you free from innocence? I'm Unplugged and Totally Uncut with Dino from The Rascals.
