Willisch (guitar) said: “Cornelius 1960 is group of friends that theyare musicians and they have met from another bands”.About their name, Ton Risco (Drums) said: “We needed a name before our first concert andCornelius seemed a casual name as b-movie in a Harlem 70´s context. Then we had tto inclues1960 becouse we had a legal licence problem, in fact there is a japaneese Dj who calls like that”. About the style Antonio Casado (guitar) and David Caneda (vocals) said: “We are a rock band in essence, with a lot of influences of old records and contemporanean pop sounds. A band interested in a good melodies. We like the music, without inferirity complex.” “We are a band who loves genuine music and who use a pop language to.

What kind ofmusic will they going to play at the final rock bandbattle in Madrid. As you know, Cornelius are a wildband who plays the most classic rock mixed whiththe funniest funky. The concise and clear answercould be: they are musicians who don´t like to playan only kind of music wihch is demanded by therecording industry. http://www.musgio.com/2007/10/25/disco-cornelius-greatest-hits/
