Aldo Nova, real name Aldo Caporuscio, is best known for his
self-titled 1982 release
that featured the classic rock songs "Fantasy" and
"Foolin' Yourself." Some of you may remember the
song "Monkey on Your Back" from the 1983 release, Subject.
"Fantasy" actually made it to #23 on the Billboard Hot 100 way back in
Throughout the 80's, Aldo Nova enlisted the help of his
pal Jon Bon Jovi to both launch and re-launch his music career.
The remainder of Aldo's albums did not do as well, yet he maintained
some presence in the music
industry over the years, pairing up with Jon Bon Jovi on a few projects
(see MTV interview video below) and even writing songs for Celine Dion
and Clay Aiken (yes, no kidding).
