My dear friends, mates and revolutionaries,
everything changes, modifies and contaminates, sometimes in an irreversibile way, with uncomfortable and unexpected effects.
When I've started this band back in 2002 with Vittorio, something like four years ago, I would have never dreamt such a positive development and good response. I had a great time, lot of fun and important professional opportunities and satisfactions, like playing in front of thousands people during summer festivals, touring a foreign country as opening act for bands I really appreciate and boozing around with great musicians and crews and for this I thank Dope Stars Inc. and all those people who made it happen.
But to tell the truth I would never dreamt such a shattering epilogue as well.
I'll try to be quick and painless:
for strong human and professional divergences with Vittorio D'Amore, after four years of exhausting work, torn sacrifices but also healing
victories and some taste of success, I've taken the hard and final decision to leave the band Dope Stars Inc., and believe me, it was not easy at all.
Unfortunately there's was no other solution and even if it's so difficult to explain the whole situation I can say Vittorio and me simply have completely different point of views about life, music, ethic and especially about the concept of "band" itself that, at least for me, should be based on friendship, trust, respect and full teamwork.
I know it's hard to realize but I hope you will understand and accept it, like I did.
Before leaving, I would like to thank you all from the deep of my heart for your total love, unconditional support and explosive belligerence and claim that I'm not gonna abandon music, I'm already working on a new band, no matter if I have to start from the beginning.
Wish to see some you again in the first rows, cause this party will never end...
sincerely yours and thanks for your endless support!
