Italian singer Giorgio Gaber began playing guitar at the age of 15 to prevent paralysis, a recommendation made by a doctor that finally turned into his passion for music.
After studying economy and commerce, Gaber decided to start a singing career. After performing at Milan's Santa Tecla, Gaber soon got a record deal and released a four-track EP featuring "Cia Ti Diro." In 1961, Giorgio Gaber made his debut at San Remo's festival with a song called "Benzina E Cerini." He issued his first album, called Il Signor G, in 1970. That record was based on a musical successfully performed during 1970 and 1971, followed by I Borghesi and Dialogo Tra Un Impegnato E Un Non So, recorded live on November 6, 7, and 8, 1972. Owner of a deep voice, Giorgio Gaber used to combine monologue and music as a particular way to express himself. ~ Drago Bonacich, Rovi
