A scathing indictment of how the Vatican handled the aftermath of the La Messa Dei Giovani in April 1966, this emotive book chronicles the story from a formerly silent perspective; the founder of the Italian Beat band Angel and the Brains. It recounts the band formation and its music ambitions and relates the true story of what happened in the 12 months after "La Messa" was conceived to fulfil the desires of Vatican II to make the Catholic Church appealing to young people. Then, because of resulting bitter and vicious arguments within the church and the media, the Vatican took a course of action that was inconsiderate, hurtful and cold hearted. It explains how the young musicians, responded to an invitation from the church only to have their fledgling careers destroyed. The reader will discover that many articles in recent years are wrong in their descriptions of what happened following La Messa and falsely acclaim it as being a successful innovation of the Catholic Church at the time.
