Welcome to the new site of Rocco Prestia!


The last couple of years had brought a lot of challenges to Rocco and with the help of family, friends and fans, he was given a renewed life.

    We thought it was time to give a new life to the site too. There will be posts by Rocco. While you’re here, be sure to join the mailing list to get news and be the first at merchandise and promos that will be offered from time to time.

You have one life and it belongs to you: Live it~

    Comment Rocco…….visited with you briefly the last time you were in Kansas City, read that you had your medical procedures done and were doing well. I regularly check the band web site for any news, but have not heard much. Hope you are doing well and on your way to returning full time. Good luck and take care

    It was a privilege and pleasure to hear TOP play at Columbus this past Sunday. The band is tight as ever. Thank you for being the glue of the band. I put a link to the site that sells the shirt I showed you.

    Come back to Columbus soon, hopefully when it’s a bit cooler. We’d love to hear you play!

    God bless.

    Tried to catch you live again in El Dorado Hila a couple of years back. I didn’t know what you were going through then. Very upset that you were pre-liver transplant. You were instrumental in my quest to play bass at age 67, and started taking lessons. Those riffs of your still tie my fingers in knots 6 years later, but I’ll stay at! All the best for a complete recovery! Bill. m. Fair Oaks, CA

    It was nice to meet you in Las Vegas, Nv. I have an opportunity to be at the Mont Blu at Stateline, Nv 2018.
    I look forward to this venue.

    Always loved your laid back approach since seeing you in concert in the 70’s. I am even more impressed with your honesty in the interview that you gave to Bass Player Magazine recently. I pray that you are feeling better and look forward to your new projects for many years.

    Have loved your playing since the first TOP album. I think you’re the greatest ensemble player to ever play popular music. Thanks for all you’ve done.
