Goblin's life has been full of separations, reunions, and various line-ups that have characterized the tortuous history of this group over the past almost 40 years. The band was originally formed by myself and Massimo Morante, born from the ashes of Cherry Five (Oliver), thanks to my father Enrico who brought us to the Cinevox Record label in 1974. From the first historical line-up of Claudio Simonetti: keyboards, Walter Martino: drums, Fabio Pigntelli: bass, and Massimo Morante: guitar, that composed the soundtrack of Profondo Rosso/Deep Red, there have been several changes within the band. Starting with the replacement of Walter Martino with Agostino Marangolo on drums, which lasted until 1978, the date of final separation of the "first Goblin republic", and the participation of keyboardist Maurizio Guarini on the album Roller in 1976. Now, I formed my own version of the band named Claudio Simonetti's Goblin, featuring Claudio Simonetti (keyboards), Daniele Amador (guitars), Cecilia Nappo (bass), and Federico Maragoni (drums). We don’t want to ignore any band that is currently active with a similar name, we simply want to continue spreading the great legacy of Goblin’s music in our own way, music that has inspired so many bands and so many generations of musicians over the years.
