“When Nirvana appears, the virtuosity in music ends. Van Halen’s music, Ozzy’s music with those solos, everything that came from the eighties kind of breaks with the arrival of Nirvana”explains Kiko, then saying that music has its cycles. “And the cycle starts to get exaggerated, so like ‘I’m going to dress colorfully in the eighties’, then when you see the guys from Motley Crue, Poison, the guys in lipstick, lingerie, pink hair, it starts to get really, really bad. .. here comes one with a flannel shirt (…), The guys were like very rockstars, it was like ‘I’m on a pedestal here’, those super shows, those videos. And suddenly it cuts off, and here I am just like you, I wear clothes like yours, sneakers like yours, I don’t know how to play properly either, but the lyrics connect, and the melody is awesome”.
