One of My 2016 Highlights: Chad Smith

I never really liked much RHCP. I like Aeroplane and the cover Love Rollercoaster. However, when I was told that Chad Smith would be giving a Masterclass at the Academy where I’m studying I didn’t waste a minute to book me in.

And really it was worth it. Not only I had the chance to see him playing a bit, but also listening to his enormous musical experience, to know his music idols and received priceless pieces of advice. What called my attention was how humble he seems to be and how incredibly funny and entertainer he is. He also swears a lot, and I love that!

One of my personal highlights of the Q&A was when he mentioned “Buenos Aires” and I couldn’t avoid raising my arms with clear excitement. I was sitting in the front row so he saw me and asked me what’s going on, so I told him that I was from Argentina. And… wow! His reaction killed me. Pretending to be scared, he moved his stool to seat a bit more far away from me and suddenly changed the subject to spent a few minutes explaining how passionate and “crazy” the Argentinians fans are. He even sang like we sing in every live concert: “Oleee, oleee, oleee!”. Hilarious.

Can’t wait to have the whole video to watch it.

Since then, of course, every time I listen a Red Hot Chilli Peppers song is a bit different. I think I have changed my mind about them.


May the Music be with you,

Hey it’s a sell out!

Hello my dears,

I’m so excited about coming back to Montreux in less then a month. This time for a very special ocassion: Freddie Mercury Official Birthday Party…. How exciting that sounds!

It feels so long ago now (29th January) when I bought my ticket and Guest T-Shirt for the party, and booked flights and accommodation. Since then I can’t wait for September! 

What about you my dear? Are you going too? As you can see, I’m taking this matter very serious in a mercuryoulsy way… I’ve even asked to a bespoke tailor to fit my Freddie Mercury Wembley ’86 Costume.

If you want to see some action, you get nothing but the best” and that’s what we’re going to celebrate, what would it be his 70th Birthday Party… Imagine if he were in flesh and bone on Earth…. What a party!!!

God Save The QUEEN!

The Day After

Hello my dears,


Yesterday I performed for third time in London but first time in the 1901 Arts Club in Waterloo. Maybe a more pianist-orientated place to perform, but I can say I enjoyed (a bit).  And I must say, it was my first chapter of my book “How to destroy songs that you love“…

Just after performing I hated myself because all the things that I’ve been rehearsing and preparing with my incredible skilled accompanist Giannis and patient Teacher Michael, were completely forgotten (by me), during my short time on stage. I’m a singer who forgets to breath… Can you believe it?! Is like a football player who runs without the ball!

Also, yesterday was Independence Day in Argentina and it was quite especial for me, because it was my first official day as an unemployed person in years, after taking the decision of quit my job for many reasons and the main one: to dedicate 100% to what I love the most, MUSIC.

I still need to check out the recording, but I’m pretty sure what I’m going to hear. If it’s a bit decent, I might share it with the rest of the world.

In any case, yesterday it was just the beginning, the first day of the life I always wanted to live. Wish me luck and may the Music be with you!

Ps.: Best part of the rest of the evening, was having some drinks, for first time in the Dandelyan. Liam & Alex and the rest of the staff made my night even better. I’ll be back, Cheers!
