Roberto Bolano, a Chilean exile poet born in 1953, resided in Mexico, France, and Spain before dying in 2003, at the age of 50, of liver illness caused by years of heroin usage.
He published 12 novels and two books of poems before he reached 30. Many critics consider him one of the most important poets of our time.
Bolano was interested in all forms of literature, but especially poetry from many different cultures and periods. He also enjoyed reading history books and science fiction.
His work focused on human emotion and perception, as well as the relationship between death and love.
Many of his poems are very long, with lengths ranging from 100 to 1000 lines. He often used language ambiguity or silence as essential elements in his poems. This creates a sense of mystery that appeals to readers around the world.
In addition to being a poet, Bolano was also a cultural observer and critic. He traveled frequently and lived in different countries, which allowed him to explore different cultures and customs. In his works, you can find references to artists such as Pablo Picasso, Henri Matisse, and Joseph Beuys. He also was a friend of Jorge Luis Borges and Allan Kardec.
He was born in Switzerland in 1969 to Italian immigrants and subsequently relocated to Friuli, Italy, when he was a little lad and began playing the piano. He began working as a DJ for several private radio networks and Italian clubs in the mid-1980s. His big break came at the end of the decade when he was invited by David Guetta to work on his first album. The pair have gone on to release three more albums together. In 2006, they won a Grammy Award for Best Dance Recording for their song "The Girl I Love She's Out Of My League".
Concina has said that his favorite musician is John Lennon and his wife loves Michael Jackson. He has also spoken about how Elvis Presley has had an influence on his sound. As far as music genres are concerned, he lists techno, house, and pop among others.
As far as his personal life is concerned, Concina has been married twice and has two children. He met his first wife Anaia when they were both working as DJs in Italy and they got married in 1994. The couple had one son together but ended up divorcing in 1999. A year later, he met his second wife Noemi who is a singer and actress and they got married in 2002. They have one son together.
