– What came to your mind when you were asked to be part of the jury? great bartender,
– It got me excited because I like to drink a lot and I would say it’s the best thing I’m doing right now (laughs). Of course, from an amateur background, and I think it’s good to have that role on the jury, because Ines and the Fed are experts and I’m the person who comes back again and again, with the most vision civil of the matter. .
Take a good look at people, right?
– It seems to me that this comes from a citizen and not from an expert. Almost all indulgences, including music, require no attire. Of course, there are people who know about this subject and it’s great to learn from them because it’s always good to integrate knowledge. But you enjoy them, like drinks, movies, music, literature, they are amateurs, you like it or you don’t. I don’t know if there is an instruction manual for Anand. Sometimes there are people who come up to me and say, “I don’t know anything about music, but it happens to me with songs like this”. And for those of us who make songs, what interests us the most is what happens to people who say they don’t know anything about music. If you don’t make music for musicians and it’s the most boring thing in the world. And I think the same thing happens with cocktails and fine dining, but there’s a shitty thing about getting high on the pleasures that complicates that. I try to run away from there.
You say drinking is one of the best things you can do. Has a culture of good drinking been acquired over the years?
-I think so. Alcoholics know how to drink, because a good drinker is one thing and an alcoholic is another. And I have an anecdote that shows it. One day, I was in a very nice bar, having a drink at the bar, and a man started to get angry, to mistreat me. hairdresser, hairdresser He asked her to finish the glass and carry on fine. And this character raised his finger and said he has money to pay and he’s going to live as long as he wants. And that hairdresser He replied that the alcoholic was not allowed to drink in that bar. varies from. The most precious treasure is indulgence and as you get older you take care of it. Like to drink, like when I watch a movie, read a book or go out to sing. I’m not looking for anything else. I don’t drink to forget, which I absolutely advise against; I don’t even drink alcohol to dare, I drink when I’m happy. I have never smoked but I listen to people who smoke cigars and talk a lot about this moment of happiness. For me, a delicious drink at the right time with the right person is a moment of ultimate happiness and I try not to miss it.
– What’s coming for the second half?
-I’m on tour with the album that came out at the end of last year, the art of eating without eating, composed and recorded during the most difficult times of quarantine. I played it on Broadway in March and now I’m touring the country, returning to the stage after two terrible years.
-How was it to be inspired by the pandemic?
-I started writing this in the early months of the pandemic, when things were more “nightmare” than ever, and we realized that before the vaccines, it wasn’t going to be entertainment for weeks in the life. I was worried for my old lady who is almost 80 years old and not so much for me. But when it was the second wave and I learned from contemporary colleagues and friends that they were having a really bad time, about not to say it, I had a new panic. But apparently we survived.
Can you be creative in these times of fear and uncertainty?
Personally, it helped me, because I’m an undisciplined guy and too lazy to do the things I love the most. Continuity is difficult for me. So it became easier to stay indoors, as I had my piano, guitar and pen closer than ever. And there were no distractions. It was a dynamic time, if I try to see the bright side of all this tragedy.
-A musician is already thinking about the next album, the next tour, or in your case are you focused on what you’re doing?
– I write, but not songs. The first approach I had was to try to write literature and it was a storybook that was published a few years ago called like a crab, Now I answer you and my ambition is to finish it before the end of the year. My old man, Federico, died two and a half years ago from a brain tumor Bravo and I’m trying to write about it, creating a personal chronicle about the process, from growing up with my old man . As a trigger for memories.
– as part of a duel, perhaps, or a way of crossing…
-It is possible, but with the intention that it has some literary value. I’m a guy who starts writing and doesn’t stop. In ten years, I would like to be a writer more than a musician. It will be a new business, another.
Where was seesaw,
“Well, it’s like the clothes you sometimes wear and sometimes don’t. I love rock, that’s where I come from, that was my background, but there are other things that make me curious and I do them. My music as a solo artist is much quieter than the rock records I made with Los Caballeros de la Cuama.
-Do you still see your old bandmates?
– With the group, we met this year at a very important and very exciting event which was the day of truth, memory and justice. We’ve played for over 35 thousand people, in Morrone, in our payouts. I would say the most seesaw I save it for my meetings with Caballeros, and as a solo artist, everything is more relaxed, more acoustic. The twist is gone, I’m 54.
“Have you become a bourgeois during all these years?”
-Unmistakable. And who doesn’t? It depends on what we mean by gentrification. If it’s lucky that I’m comfortable in what I do and like to drink copiously in my favorite chair before leaving the bars until 5 am, yes, I have a bourgeoisie. Besides, it won’t cook me anymore. I love indoor life. The passing years mean that you have less and less energy, that you are less and less interested in things, even if those that interest you are more interested in you. And the person also loses the ability to hunt, to marvel, to be brave. My favorite place right now is my house. I love being warm and surrounded by the people I love and drinking wine and eating delicious food. If it’s gentrification, yes, absolutely. The other would be a caricature of what happened to my life 35 years ago. I’m grateful that I’m 20 to take the Lujaneras, Sarmiento train and either go to bed at dawn, or sleep on dodgy mattresses in the rehearsal room. I appreciate it because it toughened me up, but now I’m a 54-year-old man trying to age as well as possible.
-You have always been discreet, but recently you were involved in the scandalous separation of Fernanda Callejon and Ricky Diotto, because they said that your girlfriend Martina was the third in the discord of the couple. How did you experience it?
– I do not wanna talk about it. It’s a completely foreign thing. I have nothing to say.
– But you are still in a relationship with Martina?
-Yes of course.
