TAO Love Bus Experience – documentary – un’avventura nello Spirito del Rock


“I know you’re listening, Great Spirit of Rock Beat the time and I will follow you…” Biologically I was born with the name of Valerio
but today artistically people know me as TAO. When I was a child, I started playing drums on the coffee pots,
using school pencils (as sticks). And I started playing along with the Beatles records,
singing songs in fake English. So the Beatles, the ’60s and ’70s, the beat generation all that world where the music was still genuine imprinted my soul and this is a concept I try to bring in my songs as much as I can TAO Love Bus Experience is a concept, an idea even before a project TAO Love Bus is a Volkswagen van of the ‘70s,
in which I play along with my band, moving through the city streets
and “bringing the Show directly to the People”. This represents at 100% the meaning of the name that I chose (TAO) the Way, the Path, the Way to Go… It doesn’t matter necessarily to arrive
in the sense of “reachin’ success” but “being and going on the road”,
this is the most important thing. Then the real success is to see people’s faces,
now radiant now amazed now even touched when they see a strange wonderful van
coming with three rockers aboard. And I think this is the true meaning
of what I’m carrying forward. To play, rather than on the road, along the road takes me back to the dimension of the real,
authentic, original Music: a performance in front of an audience, without filters,
without even a stage. “And when I die, it will be a real bomb the writing on my tomb:
I BELIEVE IN THE SPIRIT OF ROCK!” For me sharing emotions, sharing music or whatever you want
with my friends means sharing it with my family. Music is everything to me.
They say that your eyes are the mirror of your soul… for me my hands, my guitar, my amplifier…
my tonsils, my voice…are my soul! And so this is my soul, I can not kill it,
I can not think of doing anything else in my life… “LONG LIVE ROCK!”
