Luciano Ligabue , commonly known as Ligabue, is an Italian singersongwriter, film director and writer.
Ligabue was born in Correggio, in the province of Reggio Emilia . Before becoming a successful singer, he held various jobs, working in agriculture and in factories. He entered the music world in 1987, when he founded the amateur band Orazero. For this band he wrote several original songs, with which they participated in several local and national contests. The following year his fellow Emilian singersongwriter Pierangelo Bertoli was the first to discover Ligabues writing talents, and included one of Ligabues songs, Sogni di RocknRoll , in his new LP.
