By way of a pal musician away from Brescia, Romano Romanini, who have been in the Cantagiro inside 1969 together with read a track from this duo titled Il tuo ritorno. In the summer datemyage ne demek off 1969 I became playing with the fresh JB Club, a group away from Brescia, and we accustomed use the fresh Garda River. So we heard that track, Il tuo ritorno of the Salis & Salis, and now we liked they such that we set-up they, together with Giorgio Cordini and Mauro Pagani (then people in JB Bar), and it also was very sweet it was an endurance having you, one of merely 3 or 4 Italian tunes in our collection.
We merely played audio by almost every other performers, such as for example John Mayall, Travelers, Jethro Tull, Queen Deep red, Rolling Stones and Beatles, and lots of blues, as Pagani is a great harp player, and an effective violinist and flutist, and you may one of several artists inside Brescia this has long been sensed as among the better groups of all times. Within the January 1970 JB Bar, after that really good innovative several months, is playing in the Paradise Bar in the Brescia (one of the recommended nightclubs doing, where teams like Il Balletto di Bronzo, Banco del Mutuo Soccorso and many more usually regularly gamble). Then though we accustomed play around three establishes every night, if you’re for the rest of the amount of time some body are dance to records, Thursday night were intent on jam instructions. In the end of the times Salis & Salis found new Eden for a few evening, these people were today a good quartet which have Francesco Salis for the drums and you can voice (Gibson Les Paul and you will Vox Air-con 30), Antonietto Salis into bass and you will sound (he’d a great Hofner such Paul McCartney), Nino Scalas on keyboards (a double-bass instrument Ludwig) and you can an effective mond body organ, new mobile model. They certainly were most profitable: through its individual tunes, they had a wide collection off Beatles’ sounds, also it looked that actual Beatles was playing him or her! Antonietto is actually wonderful as he used to gamble and you may sing just while the Paul McCartney, and you may Francesco had the exact same electric guitar sound as the George Harrison, these were actual creatures of great taste, strategy and you can strength!
Within the mid-March Salis & Salis contacted me personally within the Brescia inquiring easily wanted to gamble using them, since their organist Mariano would get married and get back to Sardegna. To be honest I found myself not so sure, because the my ring having Pagani and you can Cordini is going on very better, however,. the temptation is solid, and you may considering that Pagani is actually considering another thing, I acknowledged. Salis & Salis had after that gone near Crema because they was indeed seeking step up in group therefore is practical so they can remain on the fresh “continent” because they accustomed telephone call the remainder of Italy, in lieu of in Sardinia. Therefore, pursuing the current programs that have JB Bar, from inside the mid-April 1970 I went to Modena and you may started rehearsing that have Salis & Salis. It was a very rewarding experience to work with Francesco and you will Antonio. Francesco particularly was an elegant singer, perfect, fancy, a bona fide Artist with an investment A great! We always play primarily discotheques, with two 45 moments set. of several repeatedly. It absolutely was a time and effort (the extra weight away from my Hammond An one hundred try 250 kilogram. And you may my personal Leslie was the newest heaviest model!). Nino Scalas, new drummer, stayed with our team up until the stop of your summer 1970, i played for 2 moths during the Sardinia in which we had been well-known like the Beatles, a tremendously unbelievable feel! However, also Nino wished to marry, very in the autumn I got to contact an effective drummer and this used to have fun with you for the JB Pub off time for you time, Paolo Gerardini out-of Brescia. He previously a dual bass instrument Ludwig too and you may is actually a drummer. The guy included you, learned the songs and in addition we leftover travel.
