Lorenzo Buhne spent much of his life touring the world as the bass player for 1980s punk band The Dickies- one of the first punk bands to come out of LA and be signed to a major label. He also played with Fear.
In 2003 Lorenzo made the shift to New Zealand. It's a far cry from his previous rock n' roll lifestyle playing alongside such acts as Iggy Pop, The Ramones and Jane's Addiction, whilst also composing music for Hollywood films on the side.
But after 30 years on the road, he has no regrets about making the move. Leaving the hectic LA scene has given him the opportunity to get in touch with his Italian side and make Neapolitan folk music, without leaving his punk roots behind.
The answer and the winner's chosen song.
