Aldo Nova

Canadian guitarist Aldo Nova (born Aldo Caporuscio in Montreal) was a relatively late bloomer musically, not learning how to play the instrument until he was 15. However, inspired by the playing of Jimi Hendrix and with a keen interest in jazz, Nova worked obsessively to master the instrument (along with keyboards) and became a hometown hero in the local clubs. While playing George Harrison in a production of Beatlemania, he worked after hours as a studio engineer and a 1982 publishing deal led to his signing with Portrait Records. Given the luxury of producing himself, Nova's debut that summer contained songs that he had recorded over the previous several years. The self-titled release was a surprise success, selling over a million copies in the U.S. and reaching the Top Ten, driven by the blistering "Fantasy," which not only found favor at AOR stations, but, bolstered by MTV's support of the video, also peaked on the pop charts at number 25. When Nova issued the follow-up, Subject...Aldo Nova, a year later, there was increased emphasis on synthesizers and it featured more ballads, although the lone track to make inroads at radio was the anti-drug anthem "Monkey on Your Back," which was as heavy as anything on his debut. Despite that song receiving significant airplay on rock stations, the set's single, "Always Be Mine," was a commercial failure and Subject struggled to achieve gold status. Nova found himself in demand as a player and writer, though, during this period, working with artists such as Blue Öyster Cult, Michael Bolton, and Lita Ford. Pressured by his label to use outside writers and musicians (he had handled almost every aspect of his previous efforts), Twitch was virtually ignored upon its 1985 release, failing to chart and receiving little attention from radio. It would be six years before Nova returned with Blood on the Bricks, a record released on Jon Bon Jovi's Jambco imprint (Nova had appeared on his multi-platinum Young Guns II soundtrack). However, in the face of a changing musical landscape (grunge had made Nova's style of metal-pop less relevant), it too vanished quickly. Epic culled together the best of his first three releases, releasing a fine career overview with A Portrait of Aldo Nova in 1992 and Nova returned with Nova's Dream five years later. ~ Tom Demalon, Rovi

This tune came on my car radio a few years ago, and my buddy said this is Mike Stanton's song - played in Yankee Stadium when the former relief pitcher entered the game.
its just a fantasy
This whole album was good.Kept wearing out the tapes and go buy another.
I have been listening to also nova for over thirty years now and it always will take me back to the time I was young and free and Billy lee ,, ha ha (( thats my name)" anyway love them forever and ever. .
I love aldo nova !!!. The first song I heard was Fantasy at my uncle dannys... great memories
Super Nova!
Aldo is the man
Kat, me too, it so reminds me of my teen years in the 70's early 80's
This song reminds me of my teenage day when me and my girlfriend would be out for a night and we would blast this in her 1976 mustang. Good times.
Fantasy one of rocks greatest songs. Brings back good memories working with my construction crew!
oh yeah, he has got to be the most under-rated guitarist/co m p o s e r / a r r a n g e r / p r o d u c e r ever. The 1st album is
right up there with all the greats.
He is one of the greats with little recognition! I love this guy!
Awesome debut album!
Why do we have two greatest hits collections on this guy?

I used to work with a kid back in the early 80's who used to freak out every time this song came on the air! He used to blast it in the work van. Good tune, but I never freaked over it--ha!
keeferdude

Love this song
jimbosc
Awesome chest hair.....
Better to be a "one hit wonder" than a no hit wonder. I love Aldo C.
mrazmeritsa
I wouldn't care if the only song he EVER recorded was Fantasy...th a t song is a majorly huge "gift" to the rock genre and all of us who love it!! Awesome song!! Thank you Aldo!!

Deb, if you listen to Celine Dion, Avril Lavigne or other Canadian artists, you will hear him! He writes and produces for many of these artists and more!

A classic case of a "one-hit wonder" who is so much more talented than a "one-hit wonder". Strong similarities to Jack Bruce of Cream.
Excellent song. Great beginning--h o w the tension slowly builds until the music erupts with the catchy power chords.
I could listen to his music for hours!
bucksboogie
This artist did a very commendable job jamming on the 1988 Blue Oyster Cult "Imaginos" album. There was much talent on that album, but his style stands out for sure.
and where is Aldo Nova now... i miss his talent
So many memories.... .

Aldo, Loved the music. One of the best of the eighties. (Played some accompaning Air guitar many a nights)
gotta love aldo. brings back memories...
Where's Blood On The Bricks???
Michael

were they stollen (like from Germany) or stolen, as in theft?
Classic Corporate Crapola, Yuck!
I HAD over 600 CD's with a huge selection of artist like Aldo, Lillian Axe, Love/Hate, Danger Danger, Ratt...etc and they were all stollen. That's crazy, right!? I love this music!
jjs2boxers
I always did really like Aldo. I personally think
he was and is VERY underrated; kinda like Eric Johnson.
I wish people would comment about a particular song in the appropriate window, and not where comments regarding the artist should be posted... Now for a comment about the artist...He plays all the instruments on his albums...
kmay63
This is a great song and should be played loudly
I just first heard this guy he rocks!
life is just a fantasy; can you live this fantasy lie
