Producer Prince Venet Swoops the Satellite

Lord Buckley Online is greatly saddened to announce the passing of legendary record producer Nik Venet on January 2, 1998 in Los Angeles. Prince Venet, as a 19 year old wanne-be producer, was given the arguably envious task of getting Lord Buckley to the studios of World Pacific Records every night after his gig at the Club Renaissance. Venet had a big hand in getting His Lordship's swingin'riffs onto the tape and into our ears. We extend our sympathies to those that loved Nik and wish him a swingin' time wherever he has landed

A footnote: LBO Curator Michael Monteleone and Hip Semantic Riffer Neal McCabe did a video interview with Nik Venet on August 31, 1997. Look for a transcription of this interview to appear in the Speak The Jive section in the near future.
