Pooh is an Italian pop band formed in 1966 in Bologna. They are referred to in the plural as i Pooh (the Pooh).

Lineups[edit]

Current lineup[edit]

  • Roby Facchinetti (1944), Vocals and keyboards from 1966 (main music writer)
  • Dodi Battaglia (1951), vocals and guitars from 1968 (sometimes music writer)
  • Red Canzian (1951), vocals and electric bass from 1973 (sometimes music writer)

Previous lineup[edit]

Pooh's original members were:

  • Bob Gillot (Keyboards)
  • Riccardo Fogli (1947), vocals and bass from 1966 to 1973
  • Valerio Negrini (1946-2013), vocals and drums from 1966 to 1971 (main lyricist)
  • Stefano D'Orazio (1948), vocals and drums from 1971 to 2009 (second lyricist)

Lineup changes[edit]

In the summer of 1966, Roby Facchinetti (Keyboards), and in September 1968, Dodi Battaglia (Guitar), joined the band.

In the winter of 1971, following Valerio's departure, the band recruited Stefano D'Orazio, the drummer of the Naufraghi. The definitive line-up of the band came in 1973, when Riccardo Fogli left the group and went solo during the "Alessandra Tour" and was replaced by Red Canzian, a young progressive rock guitarist, who quickly learned to play the bass, and became an official member of the group. Another unexpected and radical change occurs in 2009. Drummer Stefano D'Orazio, announces the intention to leave the band after the summer tour, in September 2009 and in 2010 was replaced by English drummer Steve Ferrone. The band remains a trio.
