This is where I’ll be talking about the Album Art that I like. That is one of the benefits of 12″ vinyl albums, the cool packaging that surrounded the record. Here I’ll research the creations that we all loved as children, teenagers, and adults. I’ll try to find as much information on the artists as I can.
Meco’s Star Wars Theme proved so popular that it outsold the original William’s score. It also became the first number one hit for Casablanca / Millennium Records and went platinum.
Domenico Monardo is best known as Meco (sometimes Meco Monardo). He is an American musician and producer born in Johnsonburg, Pennsylvania November 29, 1939. Building model ships, science fiction, and movies were his childhood hobbies. His dad played the trombone in a small Italian band but young Meco chose the slide trombone.
Felix Silla was born in Roccacasale, Abruzzo, Italy on January 11, 1937. He trained as a circus performer and came to the United States in 1955 with the Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus. He was a bareback horse rider, trapeze artist and tumbler which led him becoming a Hollywood stuntman in 1962. He played a leprechaun on an episode of Bonanza (1963), Baron Munchkin on Petticoat Junction (1965), Cousin Itt on 17 episodes of The Addams Family (1965-66),
I finished my hardcover book of I Am C-3PO: The Inside Story by Anthony Daniels. He never discusses money, in the book, but his net worth is 8 million dollars that he made in an uncomfortable android costume making 9 major Star Wars films and voicing the character in countless other cartoons and shows. This book covers the British stage actors long career as the lovable C-3PO. In his own words he tells, fun behind the scenes stories from the movies, TV shows and other Star Wars events he attended since November 14, 1975. He pulls some of his lines directly from the scripts to paint pictures of what was happening at different periods. Even huge Star Wars fanatics admit they didn’t know some of the details he reveals. For me, I found him to be a shy, talented, humorous man that would be a pleasure to know. He really cared about the character he was pretending to be.
