Product description


It may appear that the story told in this book is a criticism of the Catholic Church generally. This is not the case. The accusations in this story specifically relate to the actions of the Vatican and the Church hierarchy immediately following the Mass and the impact they had on the innocent participants.

Product Description

Angel with Drumsticks is a scathing indictment of the Vatican and its handling of aftermath of the first rock mass held in a Roman Catholic Church
Conceived and organised by respected Catholic priests and officials and following the aims of Vatican II to make the church more appealing to the young, La Messa dei Giovani (La Messa) was held in a Roman church on 27th April 1966. It has been, and still is acclaimed as a successful innovation of the Catholic Church.
This emotive book chronicles the truth of what really happened from a hitherto silent perspective, Angelo Ferrari, founder of the Italian Beat band Angel and the Brains.
Angel and the Brains were one of the three young bands invited by the Church to perform La Messa and after recounting how the band was formed and its music ideals and ambitions, it continues to tell how they were approached by composer, maestro Marcello Giombini to be one of the bands to make church and music history.
While their music received great acclaim, and as their popularity grew, the Vatican put in place a series of inconsiderate, hurtful and cold hearted actions that resulted in the destruction of the young bands promising music career. Action taken without any thought for the innocent participants, action only concerned with appeasing the Church’s critics following bitter and vicious arguments within the church and in the media.
Because no one at the time spoke about or recorded the true occurrences, or they were silenced, many articles written after La Messa, and still being written today, are incorrect in their representation of history.
This is the story as told to the author by Angelo Ferrari, drummer, singer and founder of the Italian Beat rock group Angel and the Brains supplemented with research.

The Church asked them to play but betrayed their trust. Instead of propelling them to stardom it destroyed their careers instead.
