Biography

Former Classix Nouveaux vocalist.

He began with an obscure band named The News, who only released one single on GTO Records, but achieved fame as the lead vocalist of the pop group, Classix Nouveaux. They released three albums with EMI Records, Solo also achieved some notability in Italy, as the singer for the French group Roketz, before giving up the world of commercial music.

Classix Nouveaux had number one hits in Poland, Portugal, Israel, Iceland and other countries in the early 1980s, one Top 20 and various other Top 50 hits in the United Kingdom, including “Is It a Dream”, which reached #11 in the UK Singles Chart. They toured extensively around the world in over 30 countries. Solo also sang with Roketz, (who sold a million and a half albums in Italy), for their last three albums, after they gave up their former Space Rock image. Eventually, Solo pursued a solo career, releasing one album with MCA Records. Former Roketz keyboardist Fabrice Quagliotti has formed a new band with the name “Rockets” (after having bought copyrights from former record producer Claude Lemoine), but Classix Nouveaux never reformed.

After a pilgrimage to San Damiano, in Italy, Solo embraced the Roman Catholic faith of his childhood and continued in the music industry for a short time.
