About Vasco Rossi

Vasco Rossi is not only the most successful Italian rock singer since the 1980s, but he is also the most realistic incarnation of sex, drugs (or alcohol), and rock & roll. Rossi was the first Italian artist to tour stadiums (at the end of the 1980s), reaching an apex of popularity that has survived uncountable trend changes and at least two full decades. His songs, heavy riff-based rockers and romantic power ballads, and his lyrics made him a sort of a prophet for a generation of disappointed youngsters who found in them an escape, a door to an easier, reckless life: the "Vita Spericolata" described in one of his most famous hits. ~ Aurelio Pasini
