Don Backy, aka Aldo Caponi (Santa Croce, 21 August 1939), is a singer-songwriter, actor and Italian painter.

Aldo Caponi, before becoming Don Backy, works in a leather tannery in Santa Croce, cultivating a passion for painting, acting and rock. Be able to be realized in all three fields.

He began playing the guitar as a kid, after seeing the film, in 1956, the film Hard Target rock and roll, where Bill Haley sings, accompanied by a group of Comets, Rock Around the Clock: then starts singing the genre with the group of Golden Boys (working by day as a clerk in a tannery for leather), using the stage name of Agaton art and, soon, writing songs, until in 1960 he recorded his first 45, recorded in Rome and self -produced containing songs Flight far and only with you with the name of Agaton and the Pirates. However, he himself to buy the 100 copies produced the disc.

A few months later he went to Turin, where it affects (this time with the Golden boys team, who changed the name to Kiss), the second 45, again self-produced, with a piece by Alberto Senesi, Bill Haley rock, and a version of Do not blush of Giorgio Gaber sung in two voices, and inspired by the style of the Everly Brothers, with Alberto, the singer and guitarist of the group.

The following year he wrote the story of Frankie Ballan, a ballad inspired by the story of Frank, his friend ran away from home with his girlfriend Wally. The music, very unusual at that time, very reminiscent of the western atmosphere. The young Aldo believes until the bottom of this song, he went to Turin to record it in a third 45 self-produced (this time the name used is Kleiner Agaton), reserving the B side to I miss you, a song co-written Alberto Senesi.

The disk is sent to record companies and producers. The teacher said Mariano, at the time collaborator of Alexander Celentano (brother of Adrian), listen to the disc and send to Adriano, who is looking for new artists to be launched for his record label, the Clan Celentano, founded in that period ( March 1962) after the closing of the contract with the Joker, but Cocker ball is the song that the singer. Said Mariano does not give up after a few days then repeats the disc to listen to Adrian, obtaining a second refusal. Only curiosity pushes Milena Cantý (then girlfriend Celentano) to listen to the disc, remaining enthusiastic. Adriano Celentano then becomes convinced of the originality of the song and the singer and he does call his brother with a registered letter. The boy looks excited in Milan and was hired.

Ricky Gianco, Pennant and other members of the Clan decided to change the name of Agaton art and opt for Don Backy. The newly formed record label sends it to the first Cantagiro The story of Frankie Ballan. On the B side of the disc is engraved The Fugitive, new version of I miss you with the text rewritten by Luciano Beretta.

Canzone - Don Backy



Don Backy accounted this song in 1968 for the label Clan Celentano, but because of the disagreements which have arisen with Adriano Celentano, precisely because of this piece, the singer abandoned the Clan and founded his own label (the Friend) who inaugurated with a new version of "song" even better than previously engraved with "Clan Celentano" and is also greater than that provided by the same Adriano.

E 'clash, also due to Vicende Pass, Celentano prevents Don Backy participate coming singer at the Sanremo Festival and brings him in Same Song contest. What he CONSIDE vengeance of the betrayal of a friend, he sings out of tune voluntarily and pretending to forget the words. Despite this however, the song comes third, thanks Especially a Milva.
