|My dear friends and lovers,
I feel like I have been abducted by celluloid, cosmic kidnappers and taken back to the black and white world of wondrous italian movies.I am now recording vocals in Grottaferrata, a small town north of Rome with an exquisite studio, where I’m singing these magic songs.
My producer, Bob Rose, is a cineaste par excellence… therefore I have a comrade in Panavision to engage with about these brilliant filmakers of the 50′s and 60′s: Marcelllo Mastroianni and Anita Ekberg, Sophia Loren and Gina Lollabridgida, Vittorio de Sica, Federico Fellini, Luchino Visconti… the list goes on and on.
This, coupled with my personal inspiration from
Lord Byron, Salvador Dali, Rumi and all of my my experiences together have forged a sword that will slay the cynical beasts of greed and intolerance that is seeping surreptitously into our souls.
I am overjoyed, overboard, overwhelmed and under the spell of rock and roll. I will weave a tapestry that will hang forever in the Electric Church’s vestibule, cool and eternal, like the city within which it was created… Roma.
Ciao, my friends… love yourself.
