Overview & Notes


These pages contain a comprehensive history, discography and a collection of information about the band ROCKETS and related artists.

The idea to create these pages was born especially out of the necessity to put together and organize, apart from making it available to all ROCKETS fans and admirers, a considerable amount of data collected through years and years of research; these are the fruits of my passion for their music and spectacular shows.

The information included herein has been culled from various sources, such as record covers, magazines and interviews, and has been provided to you by individuals listed in section Credits.

Every instance of a piece of info a question mark ("?") next to it means it hasn't been verified.

I'll try to update these pages periodically, in order to make them complete as much as possible (accounting for every addition I receive) and also track the history of every significant change and addition made.

I'd be very pleased to implement every one of your comments, corrections, etc. within these pages in case if something stated here is wrong or data is missing. Don't esitate to send me comments, I'll take them all into consideration.

If you like to be disturbed every time the ROCKETS Home Page will be updated or every time there will be some news let me know your email and I'll add you to the mailing list.

You can contact me anytime, especially if you have items I might be interested in (see my 'Want List').

These pages are dedicated to ROCKETS as well as to people who have appreciated their music in the past, and continue to do so to this day.

I hope you'll enjoy exploring this page as much as I have enjoyed putting it together!

These pages are created, compiled & maintained by Marcello Barigazzi.
