Rocco Zifarelli, he is from the south...and one can hear his roots in his authentic love for melody and in the ethnic sounds and atmospheres running through "Lyndon", his first CD as a leader.
Rocco conceived "Lyndon" after a long professional and artistic experience, so that's why he wanted all the musicians he grew up with to be by his side, including the strings and winds of the Rai Orchestra and many prestigious special guests.
Rocco has been at the forefront of the fusion scene in Rome, Italy for several years and it is easy to see why; impressive technique, inventive and harmonically sophisticated lines, and beautiful arrangements and compositions.

Francis Rocco Prestia came to initial prominence during the mid to late sixties as the sonic knockout punch behind the 10 piece soul funk horn band TOWER OF POWER.
Up until Rocco kicked the door down, the role of the bass as an instrument and, more personally, the role of the bassist as a musician, was to musically do little more than to unobtrusively hold down the root of the composition.
Rocco's style finally permitted bass players to slide into the driver's seat of the rhythm bus.

The lawsuit also notes how Rocco (the person) "spent insufficient time on the food and service at the restaurant and has not devoted the time and effort needed to operate the restaurant in a financially responsible manner," a nod to his growing endorsement clout, although this lawsuit doesn't do much for his OPEN connection.

 NIPP: Artists: Rocco Deluca
Though DeLuca’s years as a singer/songwriter are clearly evident, the record is nevertheless musically cohesive, flowing from track to track with a taste of blues here, a taste of edgy guitar rock there, and no small amount of heartfelt balladry rounding it all out.
But through it all, its Rocco DeLuca’s personality- his voice, his lyrics and his guitar playing- that shine through and give the band limitless potential.
Merging Appalachian folk with Southern blues rock into some sweet form of alternative pop-rock, Rocco DeLuca and his band manage to craft a fine album that’ll have rock-n-roll kids broiling in their seats.

 Having Hit Rock Bottom, Rocco DiSpirito Speaks - Grub Street - New York Magazine Food Daily - Restaurant Scene, ...
Rocco DiSpirito's descent from the heights of gastronomy has been a steep one: He started out as one of the most talented and lauded young chefs in New York, made a jerk of himself on TV, was demoted to "Food Talk," and then got fired from that.
Now Rocco's abasement is complete: He has been reduced to shilling for Bertolli's stealth-marketing campaign, which recently involved 100 poofy-toqued "chefs" staging a mock protest of the company (their grocery products, in this delightful marketing alternate reality, supposedly keep people from eating out).
This had to happen: Rocco could not attempt a comeback until he reached the pinnacle of cheesiness, and even his appearance on awfulplasticsurgery.com didn't get him there.
