Album Notes
"I grew up listening to a very big variety of music styles. I still remember my dad playing in the car going to school people like Santana; Robben Ford; Dave Valentine; Di Meola; Satriani; Vai; SRV; Metheny Malmsteen; Zawinul and other dozens of great artists. So basically I didn't just have the opportunity to discover a pretty big amount of different music genres, but I did it through great performers. If we pick for a second the rock players in the list they are true monster of the stage. Look at Steve Vai. When he performs he literally destroys the stage under his feet, no matter how technically hard is the line they are playing. People like him tought me a cool performance needs a great playing and nice music, but a memorable one wants a huge stage presence too.
So a perfect performance has to be engaging in a real, directed way in my point of view. The audience has to be part of it and/or has to feel like participating to a theater piece based on a music show. In this context I always think about Zappa and Steve Vai, to me the greatest rock performers ever. They are my biggest inspiration also about how to manage a performance in terms of show."

AM Dandy

What made him totally falling in love with the guitar was the legendary "G3: Live in Concert" featuring Joe Satriani; Steve Vai and Eric Johnson (even if, to be even more precise, the very first time was the Marty McFly solo on Johnny B Good in Back to the Future). "When I saw how cool was Steve Vai playing the riff of My Guitar wants to Kill your Ma' by Frank Zappa I thought that one had to be my job". But then, was the Steve Vai's solo in the G3 Live in Denver with the triple neck guitar. To him that was a perfect example of the perfect playing. Musical, spontaneous, virtuoso, spectacular in terms of performance and full of pathos.
Today he considers Steve Vai; Frank Zappa and Pat Metheny his favorite artists, considering compositions, playing and overall creativity. As regards more specifically guitar playing his influences for many aspects can be considered Steve Vai; Guthrie Govan and Joe Satriani.
"Around Spring 2012 I suddenly discovered Guthrie Govan and the Aristocrats. I was shocked. As people like Vai and Satch talks through the guitar, this guy (and of course Marco and Bryan too) thinks through his instrument! It looks like his brain is connected to his fingers and to the guitar! Astonishing and quite scary at the same moment. A massive inspiration for all of us".

His Solo project with the AM Dandy Group has and always had a fundamental role in his production, despite many other parallel projects or collaborations. Especially the Zappa Tribute of Fall 2018 (release on January 2019) powered by Berklee College of Music.
Lately, he is producing a new rock album with a band called "Thunderpets", a Hard Rock project between David Lee Roth Band and Winery Dogs. AM Dandy at Lead Guitar and Voice, in collaboration with Stif (Lorenzo Meynardi, his brother) on drums.
The Thunderpets band is a great example of the teenage Classic/Hard Rock's massive influence on him (especially AC/DC and Led Zeppelin), parallel to the instrumental and progressive music mentioned before. A debut album is going to be released in Fall 2019.
