Bio

His father a theologian that studied at the University of Rome. Mother born in Asmara Ethiopia. Her father a high ranking military soldier stationed in North Africa.

David was born on the Island of Sicily in 1952 and moved to Canada in 1961. Did not begin in his musical path until the age of 16. In the late 60's music had flourished from Rock-n-roll, blues, to blue grass, solid rock, psychedelic and a fusion of rock and jazz. Influences were Hendrix, Clapton, to Yes, King Crimson, to Maynard Ferguson, Mingus, Miles, Turrentine, Bach, Mozart, and Beethoven. Studied the 6 string guitar in jazz and classical and eventually, late in life studied the 4 string guitar and keyboards. He played with some prolific musicians in his youth and toured briefly until family life became his priority.

He never left music entirely but dabbled in his other passions such as cooking, photography, painting in watercolour, and studying and instructing Martial Arts.
