My name is Alex (actually Aleksandar,but nobody calls me that way),I am 43yrs old,born in Florence(Italy),lived mostly in Pula(Istria),anchored and married in Varazdin(Croatia).To write down a life is not that simple,so I will put here the most important parts of my life in (as I already said)..parts...
BIRTH-FIRENZE -Florence is the most beautiful town in the world.I am really lucky being born there,and for that I have to thank my father,who was a rocker and went to Italy to play (and obviously not only PLAY-you know what I mean) with his band "Beatstones"(cool name,ha?) in 1967.Two years after I showed my ugly head..I lived there until 1972,when my parents decided to continue the living back in Pula,the city from where my father was.So it was the return to (then) Yugoslavia.. Later,I visited Florence pretty frequently until 1995,when I was there searching for a job.Been there a month and a half at my relatives home,and found nothing.After that,11 years passed until I went again to Florence..I don..t know why I waited so much,but in January 2006 I went with my wife there (to show her the roots!!) and discovered I am still in love with that town..not just because I was born there..If you have ever been to Firenze,then you know what I mean...
PULA-Pula is the most beautiful town in Croatia.And the city where I spent more than a half of my life.I do not know what to say about Pula,there..s at least 27 years(roughly counted) to explain,but I can say that I..ll go back there one day.I mean,for good.The important thing to say is that Pula is the city that teached me to be a rocker(in the rudimentary meaning of the word,of course!),and the city where I had some of the bands I played in/with.It is important,because music is my life,playing was once my life,and in 2008 I..ll try to shake my old bones and get to the stage again.To cut a long story short;Pula is a city you have to live in to be able to understand it and to get the best out of it.The friends there told me that nowadays Pula is not anymore what it used to be,but..you have to try it anyway...
SARAJEVO-Sarajevo is the most beautiful town in Bosnia And Herzegovina.I lived there (well,studied there) for a year and a half.Exactly,from August 1984 to March 1986.I was very young,and did one of the biggest mistakes of my life;I went there to a military school(!!).Yep,you can imagine 15 yr old kid totally into IRON MAIDEN learning to be a soldier,or even worse,an officer?!?!?Well,it was a wrong idea..and regardless my sincere trying to be the worst of the school to be kicked out,I got in love with Sarajevo.Beautiful town,beautiful people,exaggerately beautiful Cevapcici and Burek(of course,I am talking about food)..When the war on the balkans started,I could not believe what happened to Sarajevo,but still,I watched it on TV,and the impact was not that hard..In 1997 I had the opportunity to go to Sarajevo as a journalist for a radio from Pula..I felt like my heart will explode while we slowly entered Sarajevo..we passed by the building where I lived for a year and a half..burnt to the ground..small cemeteries here and there on the hills by the city..the city library burnt to the ground..Half city destroyed..That was a hard impact..now almost a decade passed since then,and I was there at the end of April 2006,and again in December..It is getting better,thanx God...I just love Sarajevo,and always will...
VARAZDIN-The city I live in now,the place where I got married and the city I came to live in just because of my wife.It is a beautiful and cool city,many historical buildings to see,beautiful nature,great people,a quiet and peaceful town to live in,what I also like a lot is that the city is EXTREMELY CLEAN,but..my wife is sad because she won..t hear from me that I am a "Varazdinec"(the people living in Varazdin are called so)...even my best friend here (in Varazdin) wrote down here baad things about it...,and I know that I can live here 100 years,but my heart is in Pula...but who knows...I am still adjusting to it...never say never,rigt?...
T H E B A N D S
01-KRONOS (played 3 months in 1986)-my first REAL band,I sang there-nothing serious,mostly a cover band playing stuff by Scorpions,Deep Purple,Metallica,Atomsko Skloniste,Riblja Corba and various hard/heavy rock bands,we had even few our tracks,I do not even remember their names.Not one thing remained of that band (no pics,recordings-we recorded one rehearsal,but who knows where those tapes ended,I..d give everything to hear those tapes- or anything),just a memory...
02-DEVASTATION (played from 1986 to 1990 and started again!!)-this was my first REAL band,few Speed Metal fanatics made the first Speed Metal band in the ex-Yugoslavia (you can read and hear more at www.myspace.com/devastationcro )
03-HATROSS (played from 1990 to 1997)-we changed the name,the line-up,the style-now more into Death/Thrash Metal (you can read and hear more at www.myspace.com/hatross_cro )
04-LEUKKEMIAA (from 1989 and always alive)-this is the most insane thing I ever did,I play what is needed,mostly I am the drummer,but I play once the guitar.It is kinda Hardcore/Grindcore/somethingcore Punk with a lot of comedy and idiotism and not even trying to be serious(you can read and hear more at www.myspace.com/leukkemiaa )
05-ANTITODOR I TALENTI (later TALENTI,now ANTITODOR) (played 1996 to 1997)-this was a Punk Rock band I formed just to play drums in a band.The band later succeded,we recorded few demos and played like 10 gigs,and then the whole story fell down,as far as concernes me.The singer Todor continued with the band and is playing on,even my brother is again in the band,drumming.Every time they play here near,Todor calls me on stage to sing a song with him.Very nice...
06-RUDIMENT (from 2004 to 2007)-now,it was something completely different,it is a DRUM ENSEMBLE,a very interesting band,I played the cymbals (you can read and hear more at www.myspace.com/rudimentvz )
Oh my God..I hope I wasn..t so boring,that was a little something about me,so you know better who you..re dealing with..I don..t think I am a bad guy,nor I am a party animal..Just loving music,computers,friends..So you got me,if you like to know anything about me,just ask ANYTHING you want to know..The rest of me will be on my blogs.. PS;I have a music blog,where you can find a lot of nice stuff,things I love in music & want to share with you,so http://audioheaven-alexcro.blogspot.com/ ..
Who I'd like to meet:Nice and simple people with similiar interests and simply with enough patience to meet a guy like me..and preferably people who don..t mind what other people say,but who do like I do ; only what makes me satisfied.Of course,I don..t make any difference;religious,national,racial,sexual or whatever.So the only thing I expect from my friends at least to respect others choices. And I..d like to meet them...
All right,and now,ladies and gents..don..t you feel an immense wish to meet this guy??
