Aldo Nova (born Aldo Caporuscio on November 13, 1956, in Montreal, Quebec) is a guitarist, keyboardist, vocalist, and producer. Nova initially gained fame with his self-titled debut album Aldo Nova in 1982 and its accompanying single, “Fantasy,” which climbed to Number 23 on the Billboard Hot 100. The self-titled release was a surprise success, selling over a million copies in the U.S. and reaching the Top Ten, driven by the blistering “Fantasy,” which not only found favor at AOR stations but, bolstered MTV’s support of the video, also peaked on the pop charts at number 25.
