Doug also evolved into one of the best and most sought-after sound engineers in the area, constantly giving his time, expertise and sound equipment to various bands and local charity events.
Doug also worked very hard to promote the local music scene and its' many musicians, always encouraging young players to get out there and perform.
Whatever it was that a band, local artists or organization needed, Doug would do it with no questions asked.
"Doug was one of the best sound engineers in New England, and would give you the shirt off his back," Josh Parker of the local band Stonewall stated at the time of his passing.
Doug had worked with Stonewall, engineering their debut and very successful release titled What If?
Indeed, Mr. Bashaw was a very special person and talented musician, and to this day he is truly missed and not forgotten.
In fact, each year on his birthday (Jan. 16), many family members and friends trudge through the snow to visit Doug at the cemetery, cranking up Led Zeppelin on the boom box to reminisce about a man that continues to create a huge impact on the lives of many who loved him.
Indeed, heaven has one heck of a musician and sound engineer in the band. Happy birthday Doug.
