Und ein weiterer Beitrag zum Thema „Neapel“. Die zauberhaften Metalfans von Driving Mrs Satan beehren am 27. August das Merlin. Das Trio war vor kurzem sogar der ARD eine Story wert (siehe hier und Video oben). Klare Empfehlung!
What was the most wonderful gig you ever played?
Giacomo Pedicini: Lucky for me I have played many wonderful concerts, but in a romantic way the excitement of my first school concert I will never forget. It was the first time I got on stage and played the music that I liked. It was a beautiful baptism. Immediately after I had no doubts about what I wanted to do in life.
Where would you absolutely love to play?
There are many places where I would love to play, but it would be interesting to see what might happen with Driving Mrs. Satan at the Wacken festival…
Please describe your worst studio experience.
The worst moment?…A day with two friends we loaded the car with drum, double bass and guitars, we drove 100 km, we arrived early in the studio, settled the instruments, the sound engineer went ….it was the wrong day..but also the studio was wrong!!!
What would your music sound like if Elvis had never existed?
I can not imagine the rock ’n roll without Elvis, probably a good part of the actual musicians would be doing some other work. Imagine King Diamond that sells sweets to children. Creepy!!!
The title of the book that touched you most is…
Regarding the music I really liked „Retromania“ by Symon Reynolds.
Which ringtone do you use?
A ringtone very very disturbing as all ringtones, but I don’t know how to change it.
The most beautiful love song ever is called…
„The first time ever I saw your face“ sung by Johnny Cash.
Which song (except your own songs) do you know by heart?
I was born and live in Naples, in a way I grew up with the melodies of the Neapolitan tradition since childhood. Naples resonates with music in the streets, while people work, while taking a coffee. It may seem like the usual image, but there it is. So all Neapolitan songs are deeply in my heart.
Boxer shorts or briefs?
Absolutely boxer…hahahaha..but I can not answer for Mrs. Satan!!!
Which Beatles song deserves a decent cover (by you)?
How can you choose just one Beatles song? It ’s almost impossible, but it has always intrigued me the song „Her Majesty“..only 23 seconds…you could think of something very particular as a cover.
Which TV show is essential?
No one, TV is not essential, you can live without it if you want.
Please tell us your favourite joke.
When we meet ask me what it means „cazzimma“…
Describe the perfect stage outfit.
The one in which you feel comfortable, think of Bjork or Red Hot. You can dress up with a thousand paillettes, or feel very comfortable only with your tennis sock on the….
Your favourite candy?
I do not like very much candies, I prefer the cakes and I hope to discover new ones here in Germany!!!
What would you be today if you had not become a pop star?
I’m not a pop star, I just need to be a musician. I have no idea what I would be if I were not.
In which band would you like to play (except your own)?
Rather than playing in a band, I would have liked to attend a rehersal of Weather Report, just as a listener…I dreamed it a thousand times !!!
What’s your favourite instrument?
Would be obvious to say the bass, then thinking about it I tell you…the bass!!!
The greatest musical genius (dead or alive)?
Here, too, it would be obvious to say that there are many, and that I should make a list too long…so….
The most beautiful woman/man in showbusiness?
