I'm pleased to present LA FAMIGLIA SUPERSTAR

Debut album for this Superband, formed by great musicians of the international hard rock scene.

We find Terry Ilous (XYZ, Jeff Pilson, Chris Slade, Vinnie Apice ...), on vocals, Marco Mendoza (Whitesnake, Thin Lizzy, David Lee Roth, Ted Nugent, Blue Murder ...) on bass, the drummer Atma Anur ( Journey, David Bowie, Richie Kotzen, Tony Macalpine ...) and Steve Saluto( guitar hero with numerous albums and several collaborations assets) on guitar.

La Famiglia Superstar appears, then, with this self-titled album, where, with an excellent production, and the alchemy produced by the four artists, captures the attention of the listener.

the opener song”Never Enough” is hard rock cool sparkling,

The band also playing the path of experimentation, the smearing of colored funk “What We Gonna Do” or contaminating the modern rock of “Can U Tell Me” which gives us a compelling refrain.


Airy sounds take over the quiet “I Come Around” which then turn into delicious acoustic notes in sensual “Closer” or the profound and hopeful ”I Miss You”


Sensations such as unpredictability and then are transformed into feeling relaxed version of the classic Whitesnake’s song “Here I Go Again”or in acustic ”The Wind” sung in French, only to end hit the wall of sound instrumental “Visions” overflowing riffs and so much groove.

An album full of melody and great rock!

    • His music videos are always good: either very silly, or very sexy. So I've got this queued up on the PC. Looking forward to it. 
    • New single "The Animal" dropped today, not bad at all:    
    • I dig the new tune!  Honestly, might be my favorite yet from these guys. I like that this kind of gets away from the  Bon Jovi Country vibe they sometimes had on the debut.  For me, this has a fresh, big sound to it.   Will have the new one on my radar.
    • 3rd single... Love It   
    • New video for 'Dance'.    
    • Vandenberg - Sin Chicago - The Chicago Story (2 CD) Megadeth - So Far, So Good, So What? (Expanded) The Allman Betts Band - Down to the River Mike Oldfield - Five Miles Out (Remaster) Buckingham & McVie - S/T Michael Hutchence - S/T Roxy Music - Stranded (Remaster) Echo & the Bunnymen - Reverberation  Echo & the Bunnymen - Evergreen (Expanded)
    • After releasing two albums with AOR/Melodic Rock band Streets, ”1st” (1983) and ”Crimes In Mind” (1985), lead singer and keyboardist Steve Walsh returned to Kansas, to revive the band along with original members Phil Ehart (drums) and Rich Williams (Guitar). Furthermore, the lineup was completed by the addition of bassist Billy Greer (from Streets) and young, promising, former Dixie Dregs guitar man Steve Morse, who also contributed with composing skills and backing vocals. Eventually, the group’s ”Power” album was released in November of 1986, rather much to the vintage Kansas and Prog Rock purists dismissal, as I recall it. The heavier sound/direction and absence of violinist Robby Steinhardt, songwriter/keyboardist/guitarist Kerry Livgren and bassist Dave Hope were all contributing factors to the disapproval, it seems. However, mentioned ”Power” should perhaps instead be judged on its own merits, as it is what it is. Put out in a time when commercial Melodic Hardrock was very much in fashion, with FM rock radio and MTV as ever the important ingredients of daily life. In the end, the album actually landed at a respectable No. 35 on the Billboard chart, while the single/ballad ”All I Wanted” eventually rose to an even more impressive No. 19.

    • They have a real knack for writing (and producing!) songs that could be featured in '80s coming of age films and I mean that in the most complimentary way possible. Really putting the retro in retrowave
