I started a quest to find terrific blues music and incredible musicianship when I was just a little kid. I also have a tremendous appreciation of fine musical instruments and equipment. One of my greatest joys all of my life was sharing my finds with my friends. I'm now publishing my journey. I hope that you come along!

When You Lose Your Woman - Alex Caporuscio and S.B.C. Band


Alex Caporuscio continues the way that was planned by teachers as Albert Collins, Johnny Winter and Stevie Ray Vaughan, for naming some. The group was founded by Alex Caporuscio in Italy in the year ' 91, and in ' 95 Mr. Caporuscio decides to move to Spain, prompt where it starts moving for the circuit of Madrid.

Alex, singer and guitarist, is born in London in ' 73, of Spanish mother and Italian father. At the age of six it begins his journey in the world of six ropes with the help of his grandfather, guitarist and singer of the "Celtys" and accompanist of big artists of the folk Spanish music.

At the age of fifteen Alex discovers a new world on having heard for the first time John Lee Hooker. Rapidly he feels the call, and gets soaked in the blues of B.B. King and Albert King between others. It does with an electrical guitar and starts touching in groups of Blues. On having done with something of stage, it mounts " Alex and the Boll-Weevils " and acts for Rome, Naples, Bologna and Florence. In a festival in the province of Rome, there was raised to the stage, in full performance, the respected saxophonist of jazz Mauro Zazzarini, got enthusiastic with the group. Immediately after this meeting Alex was incorporated like invited in Big Band of R ' and ' B de Zazzarini.

After several changes of musicians, and of countries, Alex decides to mount a group that more of he 'says' with original compositions, not forgetting the learned lesson of the 'big ones'. When it comes to Madrid and starts touching in the circuit, with his band or doing collaborations with musicians of the height of Steven Adler (ex-Guns'n'Roses), Ñaco Goñi, Noel Soto, Velma Powell, Javier Vargas, To love Sundy, Network House or TresMil Hombres (Vacazul), the public remains amazed along with filled with enthusiasm with his way of interpreting his music. A local newspaper says of him:
" Marvellous musician, with an amazing fingering, seemed as if his guitar was the extension of his arm, part of the same body. Real musical juggler, sometimes it might think that his there is mere exhibitionism, vacuous virtuosity, but this sensation stays deshechada immediately on having verified the soul and the intensity that it puts to everything what it touches. A wild animal, go. If to that a rhythmic sweeping section is added, of big given, there is obtained like turned out a group that, more that as a perfectly greased machine, it sounds as an authentic armored car, as a road roller of the Rhythm 'n' Blues. The sounds that are listened are granitic, full of energy. The base of his repertoire is constituted by proper topics, of big taste, and versions, including styles that go from the Blues to the progressive Rock, happening for the atomic Funk or the hard boogie tejano like Stevie Ray Vaughan or ZZ Top.
