Heart Out Trance - "...(He lost a leg during the 1980 explosion at a hotel where he and his band were performing regularly; and how he tucked up a degree in Medicine from UST even while doing shows (plus a movie, Never Say Goodbye, inspired by his hit song) and recordings)...Many know me as a balladeer but not the fact that I can also sing folk songs and pop-rock and play the guitar. I actually started as a folk singer, then got into a showband, and then went solo with romantic songs. So, I want to share and bare more of myself...(here are the five songs: Ako Ay Ikaw Rin; Doon Lang; Kumusta Ka; Never, Ever Say Goodbye; and Love Without Time, that mean so much to Nonoy)...about "Never, Ever Say Goodbye," Willy told me that he had an unfinished song based on his experience with a girlfriend whom he loved so much when he was abroad but they had to part ways because of his pressing commitments in Manila. He asked me if I could relate to the song because I was still young then. All I could say was, ‘Yeah, a little.’ So, during the recording, I put myself in a trance and sang my heart out. By the way, Willy said that he dreamed of the prelude and melody. As soon as he woke up, he wrote the lyrics and taped the melody before he forgot about it..." - Nonoy Zuñiga, reported by Ricky Lo, The Philippine Star, 12 March 2019
