A personal note from Dino !!!

I think that everyone has a talent, some just don't have the opportunity to share there talent with others.  I have been quite fortunate in my life to have the Lord, my family and friends to make it possible for my talents to be brought out. I remember as a young boy listening to my mom vocalize when I was laying in bed and listening to Ed and my mom practicing for hours in preparation for shows that they were going to be performing in. It never kept me awake too long though.  My father, the late (Juan Alberto Cuneo) was a renowned violinist who played for royalty all over the world. My step father (Ed Dunklee) an amazing jazz pianist, who was the late great "Errol Garners" understudy at the London House in Chicago, was another influence in my musical background.  My Sister Cynthia sang in the Colorado Chorale for many years.  With all this musical talent in the family, it is no wonder that some of it had to rub off on me.  Another musical influence in my life was the late great "Buddy Rich".  At age 10 I met Buddy at a club called (Basins Up) where he was getting ready to perform at.  His tour bus was parked just out side and I saw him in the doorway. I was very excited and remembered my mom telling me to go over and talk to him.   It didn't take much coaxing on my moms part, so I went over to him and he asked if I was going to be a drummer.  In my arrogance I told him I was already a professional drummer and he laughed. He was not the type of person to be shaken very easily and he later told me that he got a real kick out of a little kid having as much arrogance as him.  He always said be your own drummer baby! and do your own licks.  I followed his instructions and feel that my ability to adapt to all forms of music were greatly improved by his advise.

Sincerely,  Dino Cuneo
