I have listened to Il Viaggio after years just 3 days ago without knowing anything Confused
 
I remember him being interviewed when he was living in Katmandu (Nepal). I have also listened to a Hare Krshna vinyl release some 30 years ago on which he was playing I think Sitar. It was a boring thing then a friend switched the turntable to 45 rpm. At that speed all the music acquired unexpectedly a sense and we finished to listen to the B side at the same speed.
 
Those are the first two things that I remember of him, apart some short TV appearances of Stormy Six in the early 70s.

Rest in peace monsieur Rocchi. Thank you for the music.
