I can't make my mind up about Italy's Renato Zero. He apparently was doing the bisexual androgyne bit in the late 60s but gets lumped into the Bowie imitator class. I love the construction of his songs once I change my ears.

For the life of me I cannot a find a video of Bolan doing Child Star. Metal Guru B sides? No problem!

probably you know this already, but whatev. *puts glam fact hat on*

Renato Zero has a background similar to Bowie´s: theatre, music etc, but was refused a contract for many years until after Bowie, when glamrock had reached Italy, and they found him marketable.

He´d go to record companies in the 60s and they´s keep telling him he was nothing, a zero, that´s where he got his name from. I´d say he was a lot like Bowie, but certainly not an imitator. He seems a lot more operatic from his music and his style of costume, more 19th century castrato in his angrodyny than space age.

This is what I come here for.
I suspected there was some Italian cultural history in him, which I could not put my finger on. One feels the theatre in him.
I am going to ask my friend from Bologna for the info. She knows of him.

Yes, do share, as I have laboriously slaved my way through a number of fan websites, relying on my Latin to understand the Italian, but I would like to know more, and more easily.
