Born in 1980, his first attempt with music came in 1984 when he played with his parents (both musicians) in Schwetzingen, Germany during an encore. But the story starts in 1989 when he received his first electric guitar as a gift: “a Washburn but I don’t remember the model”. He started to play along with his heroes (Michael Jackson, Van Halen, Europe), while other kids his age usually preferred to play soccer. In 1992 he left the guitar to study the drums, another huge passion. “Being a drummer first and a guitarist second, helped me a lot in terms of creativity and rhythmic knowledge.” In 1996 he left the drums because of his growing interest in guitar, especially after an intense listening of Images and Words by Dream Theater. Today, he’s a guitar player, a composer and an arranger. He worked for a lot of artists since. In 2005 he flew to Canada to record James LaBrie’s third solo release titled Elements of Persuasion which has become a hit with progressive metal fans. Now member of the James LaBrie band, he put out his first solo record titled There’s hope on Feb. 15th 2008 through Lion Music. He’s also working on the next LaBrie side project along with Matt Guillory, long time LaBrie companion.

@66eq exactly what i thought when i heard it :D

Marco’s play reminds me style of Kee Marcello and John Petrucci. Not a bad team I think.. Go on Marco!!! This CD is the best I heard in last years.

@notdacoolest they’re too afraid to appreciate art

Oh my god…that intro riff with those arpeggios….outstanding

this is just great :-D

only 7000 views?…..wtf…wts wrong with ppl these days……they have no ear for music….asswipes

@SAMPOGNA21

he uses a boogie. go for a mesa tone with bass near 5 mid near 3 high near 5.

think of it this way, turning all the knobs to the same value will result in a flat eq.
but all at 0 and all at 10 have very different tones.

the lower the value,the smoother.the higher,the punchier.

Ah no wonder he sounds like John Petrucci. He was inspired by him. There is some satriani and vai in there though
