Danny Kemp.

I love almost everything Italian, once being able to speak the language, but as someone more learned as I wrote; ‘IT IS FOR SINGING, NOT FOR SPEAKING.’ Operas are my favorite type of music and I can confidently tell you that I believe Mirella Freni to be the best soprano I have ever heard. Maria Callas was certainly the most dramatic and eye-catching but Freni singing MIMI with Pavarotti in La Boheme is powerful and tingleing.
Caravaggio is, I believe, the best at facial pain, while Leonardo the best at expression. Michelangelo at colossal works, yet his PIETA is so delicate and detailed.
Raphael’s works in the Chigi Chapel are, if not perfect, then I would like to know what is?
Of modern day artists Nicola Simbari and Pino Daeni are in my opinion up there with the best. Of the surrealism school I collect Paine Proffitt, who has a much more famous admirer than I could ever be, but I will respect his privicy and not disclose the name.
Of modern singers Katherine Jenkins, who dearly wants my phone number but I’m not allowed to disclose it, and Andrea Bocelli I rate highly.
On TV, I much prefer The Sopranos to Big Brother, which you would have to pay me to watch!

About Daniel Kemp

Daniel Kemp, ex-London police officer, mini-cab business owner, pub tenant and licensed London taxi driver never planned to be a writer, but after his first novel —The Desolate Garden — was under a paid option to become a $30 million film for five years until distribution became an insurmountable problem for the production company what else could he do? Nowadays he is a prolific storyteller and in May 2018 his book What Happened In Vienna, Jack? became a number one bestseller on four separate Amazon sites: America, UK, Canada and Australia. Although it’s true to say that he mainly concentrates on what he knows best; murders laced by the mystery involving spies, his diverse experience of life shows in the short stories he writes, namely: Why? A Complicated Love, and the intriguing story titled The Story That Had No Beginning. He is the recipient of rave reviews from a prestigious Manhattan publication, been described as —the new Graham Green — by a managerial employee of Waterstones Books, for whom he did a countrywide tour of signing events, and he has appeared on ‘live' television in the UK.
