We have seen Gino Vannelli perform several times ... (he has always been one of Frannie's favorites) ... and even got to visit with him briefly on one occasion. (After seeing his full blown show Saturday night, Gino came back and did a very intimate one man show, just him at the piano telling the stories behind the songs and recounting some of the most memorable events of his rather remarkable life. Now THIS is a guy who should write a book! At one point, he just decided to chuck it all, moved to Spain and essentially retired ... until the mood inspired him to start writing, recording and performing again.)
His biggest US hits are the aforementioned "I Just Wanna Stop" (#4, 1978), "Living Inside Myself" (#6, 1981) and "People Gotta Move" (#22, 1974) ... while "Nightwalker" (#41, 1981) and "Black Cars" (#42, 1985) also made Billboard's Top 50.
Back home in Canada, "People Gotta Move," "I Just Wanna Stop," "Wheels Of Life," Living Inside Myself," "Black Cars" and "Hurts To Be In Love" were all Top 20 Hits.
