QUEEN – QUEEN OF BRITISH ROCK

By the time Queen appeared in the musical horizon, the world was already sick with Beatlemania, a fan of the Rolling Stones rebels and Pink Floyd philosophers. However, this did not stop the “queens” from catching the wave and lighting their star, a phenomenon which can be understood by turning over the pages of the history of the formation of the collective.

ADRIANO CELENTANO: “IN SOUL I AM A HOUR”

Adriano Celentano – a unique phenomenon on the stage. All the artist’s universities are in the 5th grade of an elementary school and watchmaker’s workshop. But before this ingenious self-taught, film masters take off their hat. This is Adriano Celentano. The idol of Italian and Russian women admits that she loves to bake buns, repair watches and longs to live “a calm life of an ordinary person.” The famous Italian actor and singer Adriano Celentano for many years at the zenith of popularity.

Then he nevertheless created 80 operettas, although he already dreamed of completing a symphony-oratorio. Over time, Florimon Herve was recognized as the father of the operetta, but the addictions of the eccentric creator always doubled, as, indeed, his whole life. A gifted singer, composer, actor and playwright was eccentric and unpredictable. Nobody knew about his double life, nor about the plots of his best operettas in a madhouse, becoming the most fun and mocking composer of the second half of the 19th century and creating a perky satirical genre.

On the way to church
Little is known about Florimon Herve’s childhood and youth. He was born in the small town of Uden in northern France on June 30, 1825, and received the name Florimon Ronge. The boy had a beautiful voice, so from an early age he sang in the church choir. Continue reading
