Daniel Savastano '11

From the WPI Journal: Daniel Savastino is president of The Smiths Museum, a nonprofit organization dedicated to illustrating and preserving the history and sociocultural significance of The Smiths. He traces his passion back to WPI, where he took up guitar, chaired the Music and Comedy Committee, and was introduced to The Smiths. In his webpage bio, Daniel explains the inspiration for The Smiths Museum, Theatre, and Café. “People always say to do what you love, but most never follow their own advice. So one day I wrote out everything that I love and narrowed it down to three things: The Smiths, live performance, and coffee.” In June, on the 30th anniversary of the band’s third studio album, The Queen Is Dead, the museum staged a pop-up exhibit at the Middlesex Lounge in Cambridge, Mass.
