Ephyphisiolysis = studying Law?[edit]

This guy really studied law at law school or the information regarding him reading about law when he had 15 years-old and was paralyzed waist down because of ephyphisiolysis is just to add a feel of "oh, this guy was an early age genius"? I think if we have the second case is best to remove the useless information, since RR is well-known by his music, not by his knowledge of laws (if he even had one).

The same thing happens to Raul Seixas, who once studied law at a law school. He dropped very early and his law knowledge is "tasteless", so this information is just noted for historical background purposes (but on Seixas case there's a validity on it, since he really entered law school). I don't know if RR entered law school, so, please, enlighten me. --Homem de Letras (talk) 13:18, 24 June 2010 (UTC)

via lactea[edit]

i made this louse translation from the song via lactea, because for me it's russo's suicide note. it's a really sad song, you notice by his voice that he is almost about to cry, and afterwards he started refusing the treatment. i think this lyrics explains a lot. and maybe you can put more of it in the article. yeah i know the translation sucks and i know you don't actually care about this article but there it is:

via láctea (milky way)

when everything is lost/ there is always a way/ when everything is lost/ there is always a light/ but don't tell me that/

today the sadness is not transitory/ today i had fever all afternoon long/ and when the night arrives/ each star will look like a tear/

i wanted to be like the others/ and laugh about the tragedies of life/ or pretend to be always well/ see the lightness of things with humor/ but don't tell me that/

it's only today and this will pass/ just leave me here quiet/ this will pass/ tomorrow is another day, isn't it?/

i don't even know why do i feel like this/ all of sudden comes a sad angel near me/ and this fever that doesn't pass/ and my unfunny smile/

don't pay attention to me/ but thank you for thinking about me/

when everything is lost/ there is always a light/ when everything is lost/ there is always a way/ when everything is lost/ i feel so alone/ when everything is lost/ i don't want to be anymore/ who i am/

but don't tell me that/ don't pay attention to me/ but thank you for thinking about me/ don't tell me that/ don't pay attention to me/ and thank you for thinking about me/

Hey guy, this music is a complete nosense for you, because he was origunally write in portugese, and only the portuguese version of "Via Láctea" have the original rytm, rime and tonality; so you need understand portuguese to undertrand this music (a thing who I understand!) :-) --Brunoy Anastasiya Seryozhenko (talk) 01:48, 2 February 2008 (UTC)

Suicide attempt source?[edit]

My wife grew up listening to him, and never heard of the suicide attempt referenced here and the article on his band -- despite it supposedly keeping him from playing guitar. There's no mention on the Brazilian version of this page that I can see; I can find references to it in English pages across the Web, but for all I know they're taking from the Wikipedia page. Any sources on this?--Thatnewguy (talk) 23:59, 25 July 2010 (UTC)


Hi Thatnewguy, the source I know is a program about his life called "RENATO RUSSO - Por Toda Minha Vida", you can find it in Youtube, but it was exhibited in one of the most important television channels in Brasil called Globo. I tried to find the precise timing, but It is too long. I saw years ago, more then seven years. Best, Jorge Guerra Pires (talk) 17:50, 22 May 2015 (UTC)
