Dario Grillo: The Sicilian crusher who makes guitars scream 

In the realm of guitar virtuosos, Dario Grillo stands tall, and not just because he was born in '79. Hailing from Sicily but adopting Turin as his sonic playground, this axe-wielding maestro emerged from a family of artists and dove headfirst into the world of music at an early age.
Sure, he tickled the ivories and danced with classical notes as a kid, but at 12, he discovered his true calling – the untamed allure of rock music and the electric guitar. Now, he's not just strumming chords; he's making guitars scream.
Live on stage with his rock band, Grillo dishes out the iconic tunes of the '90s, summoning the spirits of Def Leppard, Skid Row, Bon Jovi, and a slew of other hard rock and hair metal legends. But he's not just a cover maestro; he's a self-taught sorcerer who crafts his own musical concoctions.
Inspired by guitar deities like Eddie Van Halen and Steve Vai, Grillo's fretboard wizardry doesn't stop there. He pays homage to Italian rock mentors Marco Sfogli, Giacomo Castellano, and Ricky Portera, infusing his style with the glamrock, hard rock, and hair metal vibes.
In a twist of fate, Grillo's musical journey took a detour into blues rock, where he found himself enraptured by the ghostly notes of legends like Hendrix and Vaughan.
Fast forward to today, and Grillo's sonic saga boasts a discography that reads like a rock odyssey:
