Face 2 Face | These are my RHCP | Part 2

These are my RHCP | Part 2… Q: Kids. It’s all just giving back to the kids because it’s different from when you were growing up and I was growing up, having kids, wives and stuff… My father always told me, don’t do this, don’t do that, don’t do drugs, but I did. How do...

Face 2 Face | These are my RHCP | Part 1

Face 2 Face with the RED HOT CHILI PEPPERS. Just before the World Tour 2011. Just before the release of the new album I am with You. Just before anybody else (press) could talk to them. Just before … I could have died and gone to Heaven, (why assuming I’d rather go to Hell). RHCP are back....
I MET THE RED HOT CHILI PEPPERS

I MET THE RED HOT CHILI PEPPERS

Ciao, I am Marta Lanzillotta. It’s funny how some moments remain unchanged in your memory despite the passing of years and despite the fact that even while you’re living them you’re unaware of what they will become. So it was for me in May 2002, when I just happened to be watching Festivalbar. Among the...
A Swiss-Italian Improvisation | Interview with Rocco Somazzi

A Swiss-Italian Improvisation | Interview with Rocco Somazzi

The first thing that I find incredible about Rocco Somazzi is just how un-incredible he seems when you first meet him.  No visibly frazzled nerves. None of the obsessive phone checking that many busy people show.  No toe-tapping.  No yawning.  Nothing that reveals how much he has going on in his life.  Just a slight...

Sunset Strip Music Festival 2011 | Rocking Hard THE OLD FASHIONED WAY

It’s sunset time, but hold your breath, because this is not love song (quote). This is the legendary Sunset Strip Music Festival 2011 featuring, among many talented new bands, Mötley Crüe, Bush and Public Enemy. Let’s go back in time, to when ‘The Strip’ was the hangout of the sex, drugs, and rock ‘n’ roll...

The Sziget Experience | A visual diary… from Budapest

Ciao, Martina Vitelli, from Milano, in Budapest, Hungary. A diary… written night after night, with the favor of the moon and the screams of life “The Sziget festival is illegal, immoral, blasphemous, irresponsible, polluting, deafening, toxic and sickening…. But I would not miss it for the world.” A little history on the Festival: Founded all the...

Photographic diary from Glastonbury Festival 2011 | Where Coachella meets Burning Man

Ciao, I’m Alessio Pizzicannella, fotografo, from Roma. This is my last journey as a professional photographer… Glastonbury Festival is the largest greenfield music and performing arts festival in the world. Coming to Glastonbury involves a fair amount of travel, but when you get past these impediments, you enter a huge tented city, a mini-state under canvas....
A Classical Kind of Guy | Hollywood Bowl

A Classical Kind of Guy | Hollywood Bowl

I have to say that I’m a classical kind of guy, although I might not seem like one at first. Since I first moved to Los Angeles from Bologna five years ago, I eagerly wait to discover the Hollywood Bowl’s summer lineup of jazz and rock stars and internationally renowned pianists and conductors. Every week...
