Don Backy 60s
Don Backy
- real name Aldo Caponi - borns on 1939, in a little town in Tuscany, between Florence and Pisa.
As many other teenager that loves rock'n roll, starts to play guitar, and he becomes 'the guitar' of the rock group of his town, at same time, he starts to write songs, but it's only on 1960 he pubblished his first 45 rpm.
Aldo Caponi while still trying to make himself known in the field of Italian music, he went to Turin, to bring his songs to various producers.
In Turin met Adriano Celentano, who, after having heard many times a song by Caponi, and only after much insistence of the writing for his new record ' Clan Celentano', which needs new talent to emerge.
It's now, that some components of the 'Clan Celentano', convince Aldo to change his name in 'DON BACKY'.
In 1962, Don Backy participate in the 'Cantagiro' produced by 'Clan Celentano'.
The Cantagiro was a rally song - like 'Sanremo' -, which was held for many years in Italy between the 1962 and '74 and who was traveling in a song contest, it lasted all summer and concerts became in the main resorts, usually in the most important Italian beaches.



That 'music festival' proved to re-start many other times, but without success...
At that time, Don Backy began to write lyrics for songs for other singers 'Clan Celentano': thus begins his career as an author and co-author of texts for songs, the true 'talent' Don Backy, which may considered more a writer than a singer.
These were years full of success for Don Backy, until 1967 when he wrote songs as "Canzone", "Nuda", 'L'immensità' (The immensity) that sings in Sanremo, song considered one of the most beautiful Italian Songs, taken from Mina, Milva, Negramaro and many other singers,
In 1970 leaves 'Clan Celentano' to problems of royalties, and, although continuing to sing and write songs no longer be able to get those big hits that had on 60s.
Don Backy wrote many of 60's best songs; his ballades are full of feeling and music, thanks to blues and old italian melodies .
