Ernesto De Pascale (13 Feb 1958-12 Feb 2011)

Ernesto & SimoneLoose were devastated to learn that Ernesto De Pascale passed away in his hometown of Florence, Italy this weekend, aged 52. Ernesto was a great man. A real true music lover, he ran his own PR company – Il Popolo del Blues – who were responsible for some incredible Italian press for our bands The Felice Brothers, The Duke & The King, Danny and The Champs and The RG Morrison.

Here’s a photo of Ernesto presenting Simone Felice with the award for Best Foreign Songwriter at last year’s Premio Ciampi.

Our thoughts are with his family and friends.
