Like so many of my guests, Rich Nesin started his career with a passion for music and a desire to learn everything he could about the industry. But as we know all too well, a successful career also comes down to right place, right time.
After starting out as a bass player in local New York bands, Rich quickly found himself working at S.I.R studios in midtown Manhattan, servicing clients like Todd Rundgren, The Dictators, Jim Carroll, and Blue Oyster Cult. His big break came at the start of Bob Dylan's Rolling Thunder Revue, where Nesin got his first real taste of life as a touring professional, making $250 a week as the tour's backline tech.
