Biography

Brazilian guitarist, record producer, and composer whose first contact with the guitar was at the age of 10. After he was run over by a car, he had to stay long periods of time at home and watched a lot of TV. In one of these TV programmes he saw The Beatles and fell in love with the guitar. He got his first guitar as a gift from his grandfather. At the age of 12 he was already playing with bands in Recife. He developed an excellent technique and later was invited to play with bands like Watch Pocket, Chicago and Quiet Riot. He played a little of everything, from music for children, to heavy metal and neoclassical. At the end of the 1980s he played with the Brazilian band Yahoo, when they played a cover of "Love Bites", a song by the British band Def Leppard. Since the 1970s he has worked with artists like Geraldo Azevedo, Zé Ramalho and Raimundo Fagner. He's currently working as a music producer in his own studio in Rio de Janeiro.
