I Camaleonti ("The Chameleons") is an Italian pop group, mainly successful in the late sixties and in the seventies.
The group formed in 1962, in Milan. They initially adopted a beat repertoire, and had their first success with a cover of the Small Faces' "Sha-La-La-La-Lee". The turning point of the group's career occurred in 1966, when Ricky Maiocchi left the group to pursue a solo career and he was replaced by Mario Lavezzi; from then the group gradually began to perform more melodic songs, and they soon achieved popular success. Between 1968 and 1973 the group had four singles, peaking at first place, and two at second place on the Italian hit parade. They entered the Sanremo Music Festival five times between 1970 and 1993 (the last time along with Dik Dik and Maurizio Vandelli), ranking third in 1979 with the song "Quell'attimo in più".Continue reading at Wikipedia...
