Progressive Biography

I became a "music-addicted" in the early eighties when I began to play guitar. Actually, prog is not the only genre of music I'm in. I like especially acoustic guitar music and artists as Leo Kottke, Tommy Emmanuel, Franco Morone, Al Di Meola, Paco De Lucia, Alex De Grassi, John Renbourn and many others. Good lyrics are very important as well (sometimes poetry is music and vice-versa) and I like a lot of singer-songwriteres as Bob Dylan, Georges Brassens, Fabrizio De Andrè and many others. Prog has always been part of my musical experience, especially the bands from my country as Le Orme, Banco del Mutuo Soccorso and Premiata Forneria Marconi, but in my "prog collection" there are also most of the "classic albums" of bands such as Genesis, Jethro Tull, Yes, Van der Graaf Generator, Gentle Giant, King Crimson and many, many, many others.
