now I know this has nothing to do with new guitar design - or does it?
30 April 1942 - 29 January 2015
if I told you some of the things this man did you probably thought I was making up some kind of fake history. a tale of an alternate earth
opened for the Beatles
hung out with Hendrix
had a few albums produced my Niko Papathanassio
who you ask?
maybe you might know his brother
with his wife Christina Moser, hung out at the Factory with Warhol
had a keyboard player in his band Krisma who went on to make a few soundtracks in Hollywood
for all intensive purposes, worked to the very end
all I know was when I heard his music, when I heard the sound of his voice, the shock of the new embraced me.
I thought if such music could alter my mind from so far away, what other music was there?
all bets were off.
and nothing has changed since
if it is new and mysterious - bring it on.
I leave you with a photo of Maurizio with his wife
go look at the web or Youtube
the music lives on.
