Personal Quote:

My definition of success? Has my being here made a difference? See more »


The Scottish 5-string bass guitar that Nollen plays on many of his songs was designed by Dave Pegg, who played the custom-made instrument during Jethro Tull's "Rock Island" world tour during 1989-1990. The bass can be heard on Fairport Convention's album "Red and Gold" and Jethro Tull's album "Rock Island" (1989). See more »


A complete lack of prejudice and a distinct moral ambiguity in his work.
