Adelmo Fornaciari, more commonly known by his stage name Zucchero Fornaciari or simply Zucchero, is an Italian rock singer whose music has spanned over five decades. His music is largely inspired by gospel, soul and rock music, and alternates between ballads and more rhythmic boogie-like pieces.
Over the course of his illustrious career, he ws worked closely with other greats such as Miles Davis, Eric Clapton, and Chuck Berry. The spring of 2004 saw the release of the duet album Zu & Co.. On the album, which had been sixteen years in the making, Zucchero duets with international stars such as Sting, B.B. King, Miles Davis, Maná, Sheryl Crow, Eric Clapton and Solomon Burke.
On 6 May 2004 the album was presented during a concert in London's Royal Albert Hall, where many of the album's gueststars appeared to perform with Fornaciari. Zu & Co., and its American 2005 counterpart Zucchero & Co which was released on the Starbucks Hear Music label, became huge hits. In July 2005, Fornaciari took part in the Live 8 concerts in both Rome and Paris.
