The Stickman - "Then & Now" - a video montage

In October 2013, we were contacted by a Montreal based TV production company.  They were working on a pilot project that could be aired by a national TV chain.  John 'the Stickman' was chosen to be part of that pilot project.  We were granted permission to show the video.  We would like to thank the whole production team for a fantastic job and a wonderful experience.  This is the final result. (we added the English sub-titles)

International Collaboration... " I'll Follow You" Richie Sambora Tribute

John 'the Stickman' (11 yrs old) joined a talented cast of international musicians to pay tribute to their idol Richie Sambora. 

In August 2014, John was asked to participate in an International Collaboration put together by Zdravko Valentin (winner of the Richie Sambora cover contest "Every Road Leads Home To You" - John was 4th runner-up in the same contest). 
Zdravko had written a song to pay tribute to his idol Richie. 
He met a lot of great people and musicians from around the world through that contest. Via Facebook and e-mail, Zdravko selected nine musicians from around the world to accompany him with this special tribute. 

After 5 months of hard work, it all came together. 
On December 20th 2014, the song " I'll Follow You " was released & made its World Premiere. It was then presented to Richie Sambora.

The musicianship was excellent all around. Bravo to all! Brilliant mix by Zdravko. It was an honour and a privilege for John to be part of this project. Thank-you Zdravko for including him!

The musicians participating in this international project are:
ZDRAVKO VALENTIN - CROATIA
JENS ROESEL - GERMANY
OLLI HENRICH - GERMANY
JOHN 'THE STICKMAN' MUGGIANU - CANADA
LUKA BRKIC - CROATIA
DOM STASI 'KICK BAND' - USA
LUKAS KOVARNIK - CZECH REPUBLIC
DAVE FISTON MORARD - SWITZERLAND
TOMASSO ANGELETTI - ITALY
DAMIANO CACCIATORINO - ITALY
