After twenty-two years, two good friends meet for dinner at a fine Italian restaurant.
After about two bottles of “Amarone” they decided to meet in the studio for a session.
Just to get a feeling of their actual ability in songwriting. Just to see if there is something left of this amazing creativity they shared in the 80ties.
A few days later, while having this studio session, they realized, that their creativity seemed just to wait for this reunion.
deciding to give a chance to it, they met once a week for a songwriting session. It took just three mons to write over thirty songs.
ELEVEN was born. After
