Antonio “Rigo” Righetti
Rigo’s bass playing provides a rock solid and rich foundation for all the kind of music he’s involved with. He’s obsessed by the sound, and always in search for the magic behind the music. That’s why, for him the choice of Ampeg was… Inevitable.
“From when i began to play I’ve always believed that the real strength of every artistic experience it’s the interior necessity in itself. It doesn’t matter in which field you operate, you can be a writer, a songwriter, a designer, an architect, a movie director.. it’s all linked with your need to share your personal idea of beauty.”
“I’ve been lucky to play with a lot of great musicians, like Willy De Ville, Elliott Murphy, Robert Gordon, Mick Taylor, and from Luciano Pavarotti to Luciano Ligabue, from Steve Wynn of Dream Syndicate to Ritchie Kotzen guitar maestro and many others, in studio and live, in Italy, Europe and the United States.”
“If i think to what this has left inside me I can say that is the acceptance of the mystery of music, its power to make the strings of soul vibe, the love for music in all its moods and ways.”
