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.
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.
