Nick Douglas joined the band in 1990. He was born in New Jersey and now lives in Pennsylvania. He started playing bass to do something different from the other kids in his neighbourhood who were playing guitar. After finishing High School he signed a record deal with “Deadly Blessing”. In late 1989, he moved to New York where he briefly played for the Cycle Sluts From Hell before joining Doro. Besides playing in DORO’s band he also writes his own music and in 2006 he released a solo record called “Through The Pane”.

Tell us about an interesting city that you have visited.
Venice, Italy. It's a very unusual city because there are no cars there. Just boats, like you see on tv or in photos. It makes for a very unique atmosphere.

Not believing in myself.
What is the biggest achievement in your life?
Meeting my half-sister and her family for the first time in 1994. That was pretty monumental. She's so great and I'm very fortunate to know then all.
What is the coolest thing you ever got from a fan?
If someone goes out to their way to think of me and get me something, then that's all the "cool" I could ask for. Something I got recently was a portable record player. It's in the shape of a little truck that drives around an LP and it has a speaker on it. I'm looking forward to trying it out.
