Max Marinaio (born February 25, 1964 in Lucca, Italy) is a Rockabilly, blues songwriter, guitarist and singer who composed songs as Let's Rock, All The Pretty Girls, But Only With You, Never Askin' Babe as well as blues songs as My Real Life, I Wanna Hear You, Look Look Look, Man Without A Babe.
He has learned to play a Spanish guitar with nylon strings at an early age and his distinctive guitar style derives from practicing and improvising blues, boogie woogie and rock and roll with this guitar. He said he bought his first electric guitar, at the age of 21.
He is a member of the Italian Society of Authors and Editors (S.I.A.E.) since 1989.
Max is the founder (2005) of The Flying Cats a Neo-Rockabilly trio where he sings, plays guitar and write songs. He is an accomplished musician who writes for a wide range of instruments like double bass, piano, winds and sometime he likes to play personally piano and other instruments in the studio.
Like Chuck Berry, Gene Vincent, Fats Domino... he does not believe in the neat separation of Rock'n'Roll and Blues. When playing in The Flying Cats his default guitar is an Epiphone Riviera but he also used a Fender Bullet made in USA.
