I am very happy to see that there is now a thread on Peppe Merolla here on Drummerworld! Peppe is quite well known in Italy, and not only for his outstanding work as a drummer but also because when he was younger he did also work as an actor and appeared on Italian TV shows and movies. He actually comes from an actors family. Here more details: http://www.peppemerolla.com/biography.

The beginning of this video contains a comprehensive and impressive curriculum of Peppe, who is really a multi-talented artist: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uBl_vbhLDyc

I like very much Peppe's playing. Like many other great Italian (Neapolitan) drummers, he studied with Walter Scotti, an important drum teacher. There are a few solos on YouTube that really deserve watching them (they can also be watched via his personal page):
