The Story

 

It was in the roaring sixties, when a maid laying the beds found a little boy in a hotel room in Frankfurt. It became obvious later that his parents (a Norwegian and an Italian woman) simply had forgotten about him, as they had too much to do...

Later on, his foster parents in Germany noticed his talent for music quite quickly. Immediately he was equipped with a cheap A-guitar and was forced to guitar lessons, where he had to play old Beatles songs. That was too much! Disgusted by this sick situation, quicker than anyone before, Riva retires from the music business. He decides to listen to music, instead. Young Riva prefers Frank Zappa and a few other bands nobody ever heard of . . .

A while later, young Riva was discovered by the porn business. Or was it vice versa? Nobody really knows. . .

To a greater or lesser extent, successful he gets thru this jungle of corruption, violence, joy & drugs, good & bad days. He doesn’t become rich & happy. Grown older, our knight is booked less and less till finally hated porn business lets him down completely.

Riva remembers his youth and the one real love of his lifetime: Music! He grabs his old guitar and starts playing in a Hardcore Band he got to know during his years in the special business. Thereafter -till today - he performs as solo artist playing like hell, to clean his soul from the frustration of the past . . . listen yourself. . . Amen. . .
