Hey hey this is my man Dave DiDonato he’s a great axe wielder and an interesting dude. We interacted a bit back in the day through Punchline and once I even tried out for a band he was in but until this talk I had a lot of gaps in the timeline. I knew of HRM, The Ultimate Dragons, The Jolly Mortals and Ipecac, but not really. I just knew I related to Dave’s general love for metal but his non metallic demeanor. I’ve been a fan of the dude for a while even without really fully comprehending the depth and breadth of Dave’s musical output from Richmond to Austin, Texas. After this chat I’m even more of one. A one of kind dude.

Doug Harrison here. 1989. My girlfriend saw Robert Plant at the Richmond Coliseum. After the show, Mr. Plant came up to my girl at Penny Lane Pub and said, “You’re absolutely cute!”
Robert Plant pinched my girlfriend’s cheek.
My brush with fame was in 1992 in Monroe Park. I was playing my acoustic. Ben White and David DiDonato came up to me. Dave asked me to play a C-major 7th chord. I played it in about 4 or 5 positions up the fretboard. Dave said, “Oh, shit!”.
—————————————————————————————————- I thought he was making fun of me because I knew how to play a hippie chord. But then I was immature, insecure, fragile, and weak in the ego.
—————————————————————————————————–Can’t You Hear Me Knockin’ . Bitch. -jumpin’ jack fash.
—————————————————————————————————– Metal kids love math. Stones kids love licks.
Come on home, girl, he said with a smile.
