"VASCO, THE WISEMAN'S WRATH"
...Nessun pericolo..per te ('No Danger...for You') is his most beautiful record of the last decade, in which he returns to the theme that is dearest to him, at any cost: personal freedom. Here, Vasco is more reflective than transgressive, but flashy, aggressive, ironic. At times angry and even, in some way, wise...You would bet, after listening to him, that at 44, the Bard from Zocca will be reconfirmed as the prophet of the dreams and rebellions of Italian youth. Thanks to the sounds, as well: real nineties rock, American style, with wild riffs splashed with nostalgia for the seventies and even Brecht...this was Vasco the Rocker's call in life. The record is sung from deep down inside, with outstanding instrumentals by gifted professionals, mostly Americans, from Treviso to Los Angeles to Bologna..."

VASCO, ROCK FURY AGAINST ANY AND ALL PROHIBITIONS
"Three years after the resounding success of Gli spari sopra ('The Flak Above'), Vasco Rossi once again presents a meditative and ferocious record, unleashing tight guitars and autobiographic details, doling out tenderness and raging accusations. Nessun pericolo...per te (No Danger...for You) will be in stores starting tomorrow and is already threatening to send the competition packing on the Italian Rock scene. Slow ballads that explode into Rock and an apparently unappeasable anger that Vasco skillfully blends with private insights."

ROCKER VASCO FORSAKES RECKLESS LIVING, BUT NOT HIS PENCHANT FOR MAKING GREAT RECORDS - SURE TO BE HERALDED A MASTERPIECE.
"...Vasco Rossi, the man from Zocca, has given meaning to the name rockstar, even if he was born only a stone's throw from Modena. He has quickly discovered the greatest truth: it isn't true that the road of excess leads to the palace of wisdom; if anything, it leads to madness. Reckless living may be all the rage at 20, but at 40 it leaves you ranting and raving. Vasco's new album, Nessun pericolo...per te ('No Danger...for You')...settles accounts with the expenses of a lifetime, where the debits and credits don't always balance out... The guitarists - Mike Landau, Stef Burns, Steve Farris, Andrea Braido - lay down the law, setting the pace and the tone right from the very start...Nessun pericolo...per te is a masterpiece of a mature age...Vasco leaves everyone else behind. As usual..."

A concert rich in sounds, joy, energy. With school over, a rite of liberation begins for the young... Tributes to the Sex Pistols and the Rolling Stones.

"COMPLETELY SOLD OUT IN MILAN FOR THE SINGER'S SUMMER TOUR OPENER
... He's a myth. It's written in black and white. A poll published yesterday certifies that Vasco Rossi occupies a leading place in young people's collective imagination, along with Morandi, Vanoni, Elvis Presley, Pelè, Senna, Stallone, Sean Connery and Ferrari's..."

"A TRIUMPHANT START FOR THE NESSUN PERICOLO...PER TE TOUR. SAN SIRO STADIUM DELIRIOUS FOR ROSSI.
Monumental staging, perfect band: and the seventy thousand in the Meazza Stadium stands consecrate "Blasco" as a hero for all time. The surveys show that in that youthful pantheon, where even cross-generational icons like James Dean or Che Guevara no longer seem to find room, Vasco Rossi remains a solid, unassailable presence..."

"NO DANGER - VASCO IS STILL GREAT
The beginning of every tour is a special event. Vasco's openings, a rite not to be missed...Only after seeing these young people can you understand why Vasco is VASCO, the only Italian to play Rock who is also one hundred percent credible..."
IL GIORNO - 17.06.96
"WHY HIS MYTH STILL PERSISTS
The scene--a field of heads and hands below Vasco Rossi's stage...swarming and alive like an invasion of African grasshoppers--was truly special. Like an intracity football derby or Milan/Juventus match. An event. Strong stuff, also musically speaking, from the likes of Bob Marley and Bruce Springsteen on down. In Italy, only Vasco has this type of following..."
