Lighting strikes again:
Also, if you happen to be in Buenos Aires, Federico Reggiani is going to be “presenting” the Autobiographer book, with two very dear friends presenting their own books, this Friday. Maybe if there’s wi-fi there I’ll try to skype into the event and talk to whoever wants to talk to me?
June 16, 6 pm to 8 pm. Robot Negro: Galería Apolo (Av. Corrientes 1382, Locales 18-19).
Johny Tedesco was (is) a real singer. He started his career singing mostly Spanish adaptations of Elvis Presley songs and other American hits, which might explain the very peculiar phonetic choices that were made for his stage name. And yes: the very intricate sweaters became his trademark, even getting some people to call him “The Sweater King”.
While some of his peers from El Club del Clan managed to transform their careers and keep themselves somewhat “current” (pivoting to tango or even politics), Johny Tedesco’s name would always be associated with certain corniness of the pre-Beatles local pop music scene.
