Such young ones, kicking arse 

They won Eurovision, though this really kicks some arse so I thank these young Italian ones for keeping the flame alight. I can teach them nothing.

RE: Such young ones, kicking arse (in reply to Escribano

Hard for me to get past the singing in Italian. In the early 80's I got a gig backing an Italian singer and we made a record and toured northern Italy. He was a published poet and people thought of him as the Italian Bob Dylan. He was a good guitarist too. The record deal fizzled after the tour and we returned to the States, put together another band, and he sang in English. The few record people who were interested said they couldn't abide his accent.....we bailed on it after doing gigs in San Francisco where only our girlfriends showed up and both took up flamenco in about 1983.

He moved to Spain. Many years later I was walking through the Venetian in Vegas and saw him in a gondolier's outfit with a pignose strapped to his waist playing guitar.....music biz is tough.

Playing rock in Italy was interesting-there were few guitarists then playing rock well but there were a few standouts like Corrado Rustici, a great fusion player.

Another guitarist I met in Oakland when I was a kid. Stef Burns. We were both rockers. We never worked together but years later I realized he had moved to Italy. He played with Huey Lewis too. He's still rocking out in Italy. When I see a vid of him playing rock with the singing in Italian it doesn't work for me.
