Heading back to my second home in Italy tomorrow. No I am not rich. In fact it is getting tight for most musicians these days. Long story. Anyway keep an eye out for shows in Europe. Check myspace.com/willieoteri for latest info on tours and such.
I have been spending a lot of time gathering documents of my Italian ancestors to apply for dual citizenship in Italy. If you ever want to know what is worse than trying to register a license of and expired numbered car in California just talk to me. Better still, just take a hammer and hit yourself on the foot really hard. It will feel better.
The worst part of this whole mess is that supposed experts in the US and Italy are mostly full of shit. Just like divorce lawyers, they take your money and give you at best incomplete information or completely incorrect information. Believe me, if I had to do this all over again I would have done it all myself and even though it would still have taken the years it has, 3 to 5, it at least would not have been longer and If any of you need to go through this type of thing write me and I can give you all I have learned.
Stay loose and free kids,
