I111ncontrare i miei amici d’infanzia Davide, Daniele e Michele a Vienna è stato fantastico. Avervi qui a questo concerto dopo aver ascoltato con voi per tanti anni i Biohazard ai tempi di piazza repubblica ha reso tutto ancora più emozionante. Il dopo concerto con Billy a raccontargli delle nostre avventure, ancora più incredibile ahahahhaa, mitici!!! Essere in tour ed incontrare amici è meraviglioso. Grazie ancora per essere venuti a trovarmi, per le birre, per la Marea di cazzate, per i discorsi esistenziali e per per la bellissima serata,#sardcodago will never die!!!

Show Number 5: Aschaffenburg (Germany)

Great audience, great vibes, loved it!!!! Also I had some time to finally practice (thanks to Meinl Cymbals Germany for the hand and the kick pad, Grazie!)… and I hope to have some time tomorrow to practice more…. yes when I am on tour I play something like 1 hour a day, that is way less than what I practice when I am home, so I want to keep my playing “up” as much as I can.

Next Stop: Czech Republic, can’t wait!!!!

DÜSSELDORF !!! 3rd show of the European Tour



DÜSSELDORF !!! 3rd show of the European Tour yesterday night: it was a sold out show!!! First of all I am happy to be here and have accepted this challange. Playing with Billy is a huge honour and a huge responsability: I am giving 200% everynight. Happy to be part of this tour promoting his first solo record, yeah! I am having a great time with my band mates Robbie (the exploited) and Daniele Manca (Dream healer). 3rd… Today I got a very special visit from an old friend: Ingo is one of my longest time german friends and he helped me and my band Chaoswave many times between 2004 and 2009. He helped us in during our smallest tours with a place to sleep, a place to shower, warm food… He is one of the best dudes we know. He has always been our reliable guy when everybody else would try to fuck us. Thank for all you did for me and for my band, you are a true friend. Meeting people like Ingo on the road makes me feel home. GRAZIE.

1st show with BillyBio in Hamburg

In 1996 I used to listen to ‘biohazard live in hamburg’, in 2018 i played with Billy in hamburg and we played my favourite song: shades of grey. During the setlist so many memories passed through my eyes… I basically I almost cried from happiness. Playing with one of your favourite musicians one of your favourite songs is priceless.
All the struggle, all the hard work, all the tears, all the blood… To live this moment. The show was absolutely killer and we had a great time, I had a blast and… I found out how much I love to sing on stage. It was a difficult task for me… But hey I did it!!!!
It’s 3 am, time go to bed…. Thanks for the great night Hamburg.

Ten years ago I was playing their songs in my rehearsal room… ten years later I will be playing those songs with the guy who wrote them.
I’m Honoured to announce that in October I’m going to play drums with Billy Graziadei from Biohazard in his new band Billybio, my buddy Daniele Manca will be playing bass…and this makes things ever cooler.
I must thank Billy for the call and my friend Simo Perini per for the hookup (can’t wait to see you again my friend).
As some people may recall I worked with Billy many years ago when I recorded drums for Arhythmia, it was a great learning experience and I am looking forward for this tour.

Here you can find the tour dates, we will be opening for the great Life Of Agony Famiglia.

I recorded drumtacks for the upcoming Negacy album that will be soon released by MASSACRE RECORDS.
I just listened to the final mastered version, and it’s super cool! Heavy Metal with some prog and power nuances, great musicianship and an excellent guitar work by Andy Mornar.
There is some drum-recordings footage that will go online in the next months, keep an eye on their page!


A partire da settembre sarà possibile frequentare gli INTENSIVE DRUMDAYS con me a CREMONA.

Le lezioni sono disegnate in base alle tue esigenze ed in base alle informazioni che fornirai riguardo il tuo livello sia questo base medio o avanzato.
I tuoi anni di esperienza sullo strumento, la tua età, la tua musica preferita e lo stile che vorrai sviluppare renderanno il tuo programma e la sessione unica e personalizzata al 100%.
A tutto questo si aggiungeranno consigli a 360° sulla musica e sul music business.

This is “morte da Tossico” recorded live at Obscene Extreme Festival2018 recorded with my ZOOM q2N (thanks Zoom Italia). This show was one of the best so far with Cripple Bastards and absolutely something I will never forget.

I grow up listening to this kind of music and dreaming about touring, about being part of this scene… I worked so hard to get this that I really never had the time to fully understand that I realized many of my dreams. Playing in a band that you were a fan of in a festival that you dreamed of…. It’s just insane. In Cagliari back in 98, you couldn’t even dream about doing this: It was just too Much. I am inspired to work harder than ever.
