Il Mare Sulle Labbra - Affettuoso ricordo di Rino Gaetano in un singolo atto
Price: $5.59 USD. Words: 9,980. Language: Italian. Published: February 28, 2015. Categories: Essay » Literature, Nonfiction » Music » Alternative
Breve ritratto di Rino Gaetano, che dai sentimenti partiva e ai sentimenti tornava, passando per un impegno mai pedante, mai calligrafico, mai didascalico. Un outsider tra malinconia e ironia, sradicato dalla natia Calabria, romano d'adozione. Sei soli dischi per restare una presenza viva nel panorama musicale italiano. Un cantautore diverso, non una meteora.

This coming of age memoir follows an indie rock band's first tour by van across the U.S. and Canada. No roadies, no soundmen - all they have is their music and each other's friendship. It's a now or never moment-take a shot at your dream or regret it for the rest of your life. They set out on the road to discovery to drink in all they could and maybe sell a few records. They grew up instead.
