Joe Strummer 21st August 1952 – 22nd December 2002 #JoeStrummer #BruceSpringsteen

Thank you to Joe Strummer, an active, vital, determined artist, a man who remained always true to his inner code, a musician who was, and still is to me, the real, splendid connection between Woody Guthrie and the punk rock, meant as a free, productive expression.

Just imagine #JohnLennon #BruceSpringsteen

35 years ago John Lennon was shot dead, leaving us in a darkened world, with less hope for peace and friendship ruling, as opposed to hate and war.
I don’t know if he was the greatest, but for sure he was really an unbelievably gifted musician and human being who brought light and music to this world, brutally removed from us for a nonsense tragedy.
I’d like to honor him with some joy, and so I’ll put on a good song, and dance.

“We’ve got this gift of love, but love is like a precious plant. You can’t just accept it and leave it in the cupboard or just think it’s going to get on by itself. You’ve got to keep watering it. You’ve got to really look after it and nurture it.”
John Lennon

Willy DeVille

English version of the book:…/

I take a moment and ask you to consider this book, LOVE AND EMOTION – A Story about Willy DeVille. It’s written by a truly talented music writer, Mauro Zambellini, and it’s -as we speak, the only existing book about that extraordinair musician, singer-songwriter and performer who was Willy DeVille. I have seen Willy in concert many many times, he was a really talented musician, full of passion and charisma. If you are interested in his musical adventure and life, please read this book.

“Mink DeVille knows the truth of a city street and the courage in a ghetto love song. And the harsh reality in his voice and phrasing is yesterday, today, and tomorrow — timeless in the same way that loneliness, no money, and troubles find each other and never quit for a minute” Doc Pomus
