God smiled on me in every sense. I was born a tenor, and you know what that means. Tenors are a rare commodity.
Sicily is a blessed land. First, because of its geographic position in the Mediterranean. Second, for its history and all the different peoples who have settled there: Arabs, Greeks, Normans, the Swedes. That has made us different from others. We exaggerate, we overdo. We love Greek tragedy. We cry, we fight, sometimes for nothing.
I try to steal something from the great singers. Of course, I don't want to imitate their sound, but I try to do a sort of compromise.
I learned my profession onstage. I didn't have a musical background. I had no conservatory training. I don't play an instrument.
I play piano very badly. That's my great regret.
