The Classic Rock Show, Ricardo Afonso

When and where were you born?

I was born in Angola in 1974

When did you start to play?

I started playing guitar at 13 and still do, but singing I've been doing since I was very young maybe since I was born!

Tell us about some of your previous projects.

Stevie Wonder, David Coverdale, Luciano Pavarotti, George Benson, Ella Fitzgerald, Maria Callas, Michael Jackson, Rui Veloso, Vicente Amigo, Bobby Womack, Al Jarreau, John Farnham... Tower Of Power, Earth Wind And Fire, Metallica, Rage Against The Machine, Dobbie Brothers, James Taylor... To name but a few... Puccini goes straight to my soul... I could go on...

I always travel with my vocal chords... Never leave home without them!

One obscure interesting fact about yourself.

Don't eat broad beans... Apart from that I will eat and drink pretty much everything.
