Honestly before attending the evening culinary-literary held on 4 December 'The Garibaldi 'Cantu, I did not know it either when he was born to rock. The answer gave it to me Ezio Guaitamacchi, journalist and music critic, author and host of radio and television, founder of the historical monthly Jam, Italian thriller writer of the first rock 'Psycho Killer'. His latest book, with a preface by Renzo Arbore, is precisely dedicated to the 'History of Rock'.

Well, birth dThe history of rockel rock historians believe dates back to 1954 in the southern United States. A music that embodied the rebellion of young age and has had several phases. That of Lou Reed, according Ezio Guaitamacchi, was unique and special.

His interview more exciting one with Ray Charles, what is still lacking with Bob Dylan. During dinner inspired by the Christmas traditions of Parma, city ​​of the restaurant's chef, between courses and the other has traced the history of rock with songs performed by Ezio and by the talented singer Brunella Boschetti Ventura.
