This was the life of 1 single man who became one of my dearest friends in my entire life, and my favorite fan; Count Guido Robert Deiro. We so sadly lost him this week.

And trust me; there is more. There are also many more “First in Las Vegas” and “First in Nevada” records I’m missing. It is simply too much to remember.

All of it sounds impossible and simply not-believable. But the son of the "Father of the Piano Accordion" had everything documented to go along with a gargantuan amount of evidence for everything he said, from a Cuban Sargent’s medal given to him by one of his Nigerian Soldier’s during his secret trips to Africa, to his Ferrari Club of Nevada badge, to the actual meteorite he found, to his mountain of certificates from every field of the world, to pictures with Howard Hughes and parties he was invited to which included the likes of William Randolph Hearst, to videos of him in his prototype race car.

As someone that spent so many hours with him on the phone, and was at his house 4 times for 10 days scoring through piles of objects, I can tell you; It was all there. It was all true.

His incredible memory of pilot friends who died in the 50’s to who ran what organization that he dealt with in the 70’s or what secretary of a politician he had to smooth over to get a deal done in the 90’s was savant-like. He was, and may still be in 2019, the "Most Interesting Man in the World".

This week, we have lost one of the great Renascence Men of the 20th century, and our closest connection to Piano Accordion History in North America. The man who started it all.
