Mille, the song by Fedez, Orietta Berti and Achille Lauro, has been very successful, becoming one of the summer hits par excellence. Not everyone, however, appreciates the collaboration of the three singers.
Umberto Tozzi he is among the Italian artists to have sold the largest number of records. The opinions of the songwriter are therefore not to be “taken lightly”. An artist who has been in the music scene for a long time and has known many successes, has had his say on a current catchphrase: Mille.
If it is nice to see solidarity and mutual support between colleagues, it is curious to see when this does not happen. In the musical world we know, there is also a lot of competition, unfortunately. However, in this case, more than a manifestation of a kind of competition, the negative comments of Umberto Tozzi they arise from a sort of difficulty on the part of the singer-songwriter in accepting today’s music.

Umberto Tozzi: “Ridiculous!”
The Italian singer-songwriter, during an interview for Rolling Stones, decided to “let off steam”. Aware of belonging to a different era, also made up of Yes and Deep, where to say about Tozzi everything could make sense.
Instead, today, Stocky fails to see a hope in music and in those who deal with music, defining what is being produced today as ridiculous:
Music today is ridiculous. What do I think of the various operations like Mille with Fedez, Achille Lauro and Orietta Berti or Toy Boy with Colapesce and Dimartino together with Ornella Vanoni? Ridiculous.
To stay consistent, Umberto Tozzi he doesn’t even want to take part in any music festival or contest. Stocky won in 1987 the Sanremo Festival, with You can give more (together with Gianni Morandi and Enrico Ruggeri). Today, however, the artist would never, ever return toAriston:
Today the music on TV does not work, let’s face it, you have to go and listen to it at concerts. Yes, there is Sanremo, but as you can see it is no longer music. It’s a TV show, it has nothing to do with the music. Me artistic director? They would kick me right away. I only get involved emotionally. And since in my opinion today’s music is ridiculous I could not and I would not know how to judge it.

Who knows if – and how – the “targeted” artists will react, given and considered that Fedez he is often very controversial and cannot help but have his say.
