Besides vague memories of traditional folk local groups on the beach in Sicily in the summer and some classical solo performances, I have a memory of the first "pop" concert in an auditorium: late 80s, Gino Vannelli in Milano. Great sounding ensemble, with Joe Vannelli playing keyboards and doing all the bass programming. I remember the distinct feel of having fat synth bass lines running in the back of the show, instead of real bass playing. The huge drumset. The powerful voice. The loud screaming audience surrounding me. A great memory.
What gear do you use?
Yamaha U1 upright, Hammond C3 with Leslie 122, Wurlitzer 200A and Beltrami accordions are my babies in the studio. I play Nord Stage and Electro and Yamaha Motif mainly live.
