Valentino Parlato

The archetypal mad arse drummer! "Animal" is a cute laid back cuddly toy by comparison.
But man, can he play!

He started playing around 1980 in Argentina, where he studied at the Banfield Conservatoire for two years. After which he played with many Ska & Reggae bands, so many he can't remember any of them (must have been the rock 'n' roll lifestyle).

Came to England and played with bands such as:
Symptom (Rock)
Gangsters (Ska/Reggae)
Nervous Joseph (Reggae)

Joined Blues Consortium by recommendation of Mick Castellano (cheers Mick!!?)
