Fabrizio”Bicio”(pronounce:bee-chow)Leo, was born in Abbiategrasso, about 20km south of Milan, Italy on 7/28/1971. He began playing guitar by himself at sixteen, focusing his passion and practicing on rock/fusion genre, inspired by didactic videos from such amazing players like Greg Howe, Brett Garsed, Frank Gambale just to name a few… After several collaborations as sideman and touring with highly representative italian pop artists, in the year 2006, Bicio became the first italian guitarist ever produced by Shrapnel Records’s boss Mike Varney, worldwide famous to started 20 years ago the shred generation fire, producing guitar Gods like: Greg Howe, Vinnie Moore, Tony Mac Alpine, Joey Tafolla, Richie Kotzen and much more…The cd, titled “Cutaway” raised an authentic“tsunami” of positive responses from specialized international and italian press and fans from the five continents. After then, he restarted collaborating with the most famous Italian singers, tracking his unmistakable guitarfingerprintings on their  records and on a countless number of live concerts…Five years later it was time to please his fans that were massively demanding a second solo released… Just sent the demos to Mike Varney, the “Shred Pope” from California, U.S.A. wanted enthusiastically produce the new album. The October 24th, 2011 “Mr.Malusardi” named after his best friend  Italian music journalist and Milan Guitar Day organizer Guglielmo Malusardi, was worldwide released by Shrapnel Records.

He had no doubt; long career, trustable and so amazingly groovy rhythm section composed by Flavio Scopaz on bass and Francesco Corvino on drums, was his choice.
