When I turned 18 I immediately went to well-known pop festivals or concerts with U2, The Ramones, Paul Young and the Golden Earing, Judas Priest. In small pubs in Nijmegen Sinead O Connor, Matt Bianco and Herman Brood (of which my Italian son is now a fan!)
Later in Milan I visited a few concerts of classical music by Mozart, Renato Zero and attended a Pistoia blues festival in Italy where I was allowed to listen to BB King from 30 meters away! Oh Yeahhh.
Blues is my favorite music style. Blues will never die!
To name just a few: The Nighthawks with Nightlife, Aneth Franklin, in a way also Amy Winehouse, Zucchero, North Mississippi Allstars, Joe Bonamassa with burning hell and so on.
In Tuscany, however, I started to develop my music inspirations. I took several music lessons such as; singing lessons with Massimo Guidi, piano lessons with Sandra Cecchi and drum lessons with Alessandro Loconte.
I am also part of Sandra Cecchi’s choir where we sing during performances, often accompanied with piano, accordion diatonico, violin and stories are told, accompanied by special musical instruments such as a didjeridoo.
