He was a well-known sports commentator and the Spanish voice of the cartoon character Crayon Shin-chan.

RIP Danilo Ratici

Italian guitarist Danilo Rustici, founding member of Osanna, one of the most important Italian progressive bands ever, died at the age of 72. The musician, whose health had already been weakened in the past, died at the Cardarelli Hospital in Naples due to complications deriving from Covid, as reported by Repubblica. Rustici gave life, with Osanna, one of the most important Italian musical experiences, bringing the music of our country far beyond national borders and becoming one of the world reference points of prog. Danilo was the brother of fellow musician Corrado Ratici. As a member of Osanna Ratici appeared on the soundtrack to the Spaghetti western “Stay Away from Trinity… When He Comes to Eldorado” (1972).
