Adriano Celentano (born January 6, 1938) is an Italian singer, songwriter, comedian, actor, film director and TV host.

Biography

Celentano was born in Milan at 14 Via Gluck (about which he later wrote the song "Il ragazzo della via Gluck"). His parents were from Puglia and had moved North to work.

Before starting his singing career, in Milan the metropolitan legend remembered Celentano as student of Ghigo Agosti (European rock pioneer) during his music show in north Italy around 1955-1956 with the exordial guitarist Giorgio Gaber.

Heavily influenced by his idol Elvis Presley and the 1950s rock revolution, he is also known as the most famous dancer of the Hula hoop fad. For the last 40 years he has retained his popularity in Italy, selling millions of records and appearing in numerous TV shows and movies. In the latter respect, he has also been a creator of a comic genre, with his characteristic walking and his facial expressions. For the most part, his films were commercially successful; indeed in the 1970s and part of the 1980s, he was the king of the Italian box office in low budget movies. As an actor, critics point to "Serafino" (1968), directed by Pietro Germi, as his best performance.

As a director he frequently casts Ornella Muti, Eleonora Giorgi and his wife Claudia Mori. He and Claudia are the parents of Rosita, Rosalinda Celentano, most notable to worldwide audiences for playing the Satan character in Mel Gibson's "The Passion of the Christ", and Giacomo Celentano. He also often works as a host on several Italian television shows.

He has released 40 albums: 29 studio albums, 3 live albums and 8 compilations.
