Alex De's Bio
Alex De Rosso’s passion for rock guitar began in 1982 in Padova, Italy. In 1995 Alex entered the international scene when Alfa Brunette released in Japan “Alex De Rosso”, his self titled cd. In the same year “Music Connection” rated Alex’s demo as one of the best 10 demos of the year, the best in instrumental rock, and he started to play in music conventions and fairs like the Namm Show in Los Angeles, the Frankfurt Musikmesse in Germany, and the Interexpomusic & the Disma Music Show in Italy. In 1997 Alex started to record his second album “Ossimoro”, that has been released in 1998. In 2002, right after the release of his third album, “The thin line between black and white”, Alex joined Dokken taking over guitar duties when John Norum (Europe) left the band. As the new Dokken guitar player, Alex toured in 2002 and 2003 playing over 100 shows. Alex also recorded the all-star album for the russian band Pushking, a project where you can hear Alex together with rock icons Alice Cooper, Paul Stanley (KISS), Billy Gibbons (ZZ Top), Glenn Hughes, Joe Lynn Turner, Eric Martin, Steve Lukather, Steve Vai, Steve Stevens, Nuno Bettencourt. After this Alex finally joined the band, collaborating with Pushking for live shows and the release of their new album. And in 2012 finally Alex started the production of his long awaited fourth solo album, released in january 2013. Many great musicians and friends are part of Alex’s ultimate work: Don Dokken (Dokken), Reb Beach (Winger, Dokken, Whitesnake), George Lynch (Lynch Mob, Dokken), Timothy Drury (Whitesnake, the Eagles), Doug Aldrich (Whitesnake), Steve Lukather (Toto) !!!
