Interview - VAM

VAM is a rock band that uncompromisingly combines the sounds of the American 80s and 90s with the addition of the Italian language.

Hi and welcome to this interview. 
"Hi and thanks a lot for the opportunity" 

- How would you describe your sound? 
"Our sound brings back to the American rock music of the 80s and the 90s with the particularity of singing in Italian."

- What do you write about? 
"Our songs talk about real lived stories, sensations, moods. Women are often the main source of inspiration, the muse."

- What do you listen to when you are home?
"Hard rock, rock, metal, rock n roll"

- Your favourite live performance so far? 
We played in a historical and iconic theater in Sanremo (Italy) last year. It was really suggestive.

- Tell us a funny story that happened in studio or on stage.
"I can remember one day in the studio, while our drummer was recording a session, he saw a real snake crawling on his feet and he ran away terrorized. The fact is that the sound technician keeps exotic animals and one snake escaped from its cage. Unforgettable the face the drummer made!!!"

- Your favourite albums? 
" I love the 80s and the 90s, that's why the list would be pretty long and to select just one would be like to spite the other ones.  But I can say for sure that our guitarist Maschio would choose Appetite for destruction."

- A musician you would like to meet for a beer? 
Slash, Zakk Wylde, Michael Stipe.

- What would you ask for backstage, if you were the most important band on earth?
definitely a minimalist backstage. big screens and lots of amps. No special effects.

- What are your plans for the near future?
"At the moment we are finishing to record our latest songs for the new album (not yet titled) e play lives trying out the new songs"
