Drummer David Casanova met Kevin Fisher in 1986. With bass player Jeff Allen, they put together a band called Remarks. The trio was a crossbreed between the Beatles, CSN, and Bryan Adams. They played together for 7 years coming very close, but to no avail. David played in a cover band called Dakota for about 10 years, touring all over the Pacific Northwest... with even a stint in Finland sponsored by Budweiser. Between gigs with Naked to the World, David also played for a number of yeras in the band ChillinSun with the late great Kenny Kanowski.
