Throwback Thursday: VP of Sales Rick Naqvi

August 22,2013

VP of Sales Rick Naqvi also serves as both the face and mouth of PreSonus. Rick’s upbringing was a little less musical than other PreSonus regulars—here he is depicted moments before destroying a 1983 Les Paul Studio in a fit of fructuse-driven pre-teen rage.

Rick’s smashy habits were a path to success, as these humble beginnings lead to a three-year stint as pinch-hitting guitar smasher for KISS during the “No Peter Criss, No Ace Frehely, and No Makeup” era from 1987-1990.

Rick’s age is difficult to calculate here, as the exact date this photo was taken remains unclear and is probably lost to history.
