Born on Oct 21, 1947, in Pontedera, Italy, Riccardo Fogli (pronounced FOL’-yee) started his musical profession young, initially singing in country festivals and in local dancehalls. Later on, he teamed up using the Slenders, among the countless rock and roll groups inspired from the success from the Beatles. During among their trips, Fogli fulfilled the users of Pooh, currently an established music group with several singles under their belt. In 1966, he became a member of Pooh, with whom he documented the albums Opera Prima and Alessandra. He remaining the group in 1973 to go after a solo performing career and the next year debuted in the Sanremo event with “Complici.” The collaboration with Maurizio Fabrizio and Guido Morra that started in 1979 led to such strikes as “Malinconia” and “Storie di Tutti i Giorni,” the second option winning first reward at Sanremo in 1982. Fogli’s following Sanremo looks with “Sulla Buona Strada” (1985), “Lo Ti Prego di Ascoltare” (1991), and “In una Notte Così” (1992) had been less successful, however they by no means passed undetected. In 1995, he released the acoustic record Fogli Su Fogli, where he revisited a few of his ideal strikes. In 1998, Fogli documented the record Ballando, featuring brand-new songs created in collaboration along with his friend Fabio Pianigiani.
