Dear Friends, and dear Visitors, and also dear UN-friendly people,
A “few” words for you all together:
I started these blogs of mine exactly one year ago, on the 20th November 2009. Since then, many things have happened, many troubles but also many satisfactions. Whom ever of you liked to follow the chronology (real good friends like Fabio, Peter, Gurnemanz, Nikos, Ellen and Christina) know exactly what I mean.
Now aftrer receiving some communications, which you can read here below, I decided to stop giving links to albums and videos of any kind

Blogger has been notified, according to the terms of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA), that certain content in your blog is alleged to infringe upon the copyrights of others. As a result, we have reset the post(s) to "draft" status. (If we did not do so, we would be subject to a claim of copyright infringement, regardless of its merits. The URL(s) of the allegedly infringing post(s) may be found at the end of this message.) This means your post - and any images, links or other content - is not gone. You may edit the post to remove the offending content and republish, at which point the post in question will be visible to your readers again. A bit of background: the DMCA is a United States copyright law that provides guidelines for online service provider liability in case of copyright infringement. If you believe you have the rights to post the content at issue here, you can file a counter-claim. For more information on our DMCA policy, including how to file a counter-claim, please see http://www.google.com/dmca.html. The notice that we received, with any personally identifying information removed, will be posted online by a service called Chilling Effects at http://www.chillingeffects.org. We do this in accordance with the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA). You can search for the DMCA notice associated with the removal of your content by going to the Chilling Effects search page at http://www.chillingeffects.org/search.cgi, and entering in the URL of the blog post that was removed. If it is brought to our attention that you have republished the post without removing the content/link in question, then we will delete your post and count it as a violation on your account. Repeated violations to our Terms of Service may result in further remedial action taken against your Blogger account including deleting your blog and/or terminating your account. If you have legal questions about this notification, you should retain your own legal counsel.
Sincerely, The Blogger Team
It all got started with the bootleg of Captain Beefheart, they removed it from the server, then it was the turn of other albums, and then things went on and on…
Now, I don’t want anymore to receive stuff like that. This must be the last time! I have a lot of other things to do, to follow my work, lead a normal life with the woman who is my Lady, but most of all I need my sleep at night, troubles are not lacking in my life, I really have no will to increase the number. Maybe I'm too old (I have already passed the half-century of age, small secret that at this stage I have no problems to reveal), or maybe too annoyed, really, but the task is not worthy anymore. As you all know, I did all this not for my personal incoming, I am fundamentally a purist, I never gained a coin from all this (I even refused to apply any kind of publicity to my pages!), but I did it rather for the huge love I bear to the music I love, and for the pleasure in sharing it with other real music lovers.
So, in short, I'm closing, and this time for good.
The only Blog that I think I will keep opened is the “Diary”, because it doesn’t hold entries related to posted albums.
Of course, Friends remain Friends, I deeply cherish the marvellous contacts I have with them. Thanks to the activity of my blogs, I had the chance to get in touch with new wonderful people, in some cases there are oceans separating us, nevertheless with a few of them we even met in person! …. But for the others, what else can I say, other than “I’m sorry, but the Inquisition stroke again”… ?
