Who Was Renato Russo?

     Renato Russo, stage name of Renato Manfredini Júnior (Rio de Janeiro, March 27, 1960 - Rio de Janeiro, October 11, 1996), was a Brazilian singer, songwriter, producer and multi-instrumentalist, famous for being the vocalist and founder of the rock band Legião Urbana. Before founding the group, Renato joined the musical group Aborto Elétrico, which he left due to the constant disagreements between him and the drummer Fê Lemos. 
     
     He adopted the Russian artistic surname in honor of the Englishman Bertrand Russell, the Swiss Jean-Jacques Rousseau and the Frenchman Henri Rousseau. Renato died due to complications caused by HIV on October 11, 1996, at the time aged 36, with only 1 day to go before the band's birthday. Friends of the singer claim that he contracted the disease after getting involved with a boy he met in New York, who had the disease in 1989. As a member of Legião Urbana, Renato released eight studio albums, five live albums, some posthumously and several tales. 

     He also recorded three solo albums and sang alongside Herbert Vianna, Adriana Calcanhotto, Cássia Eller, Paulo Ricardo, Erasmo Carlos, Leila Pinheiro, Biquini Cavadão, 14 Bis and Plebe Rude. In October 2008, Rolling Stone magazine promoted the List of the Hundred Greatest Artists in Brazilian Music, in which Renato Russo occupies the 25th place.
