In the late 1990s his songs were subjected to a semi-official ban in the Croatian state media. It had less to do with the quality or questionable origin of Vuco's music, and more with Vuco's temperament and his tendency not to mince words when talking about some of his peers and their personal habits. Some of those names apparently included some of the most powerful people in the Croatian entertainment industry. Apart from having a turbo-folk career, Siniša Vuco is also a vocalist and guitarist for the hard rock band Živo blato, for which he writes most of the songs. While playing for Živo blato, he takes the stage name Vasilije Mitu.
He is also a member of the heavy metal band Klanje ljudi, for which he performs using the stage name Admiral Koljač. He is infamous for his often eccentric performances; for example: Živo blato's Split concert of 2004 stands out as lambs were being roasted on stage as the band played, and spectators could simply walk up to the stage and grab a piece of lamb to eat. He declared that his favorite pets are chickens and that he hates cats, dogs and flies. Siniša Vuco is also known for his quite eccentric television appearances, such as those on the Nightmare Stage talk show, which used to air on OTV. Similar appearances occurred during the 2003 parliamentary elections when he appeared on Croatian Radiotelevision as an independent candidate. Although many in Croatian public considered his TV presentation to be the most original and the most entertaining part of the entire campaign, most people saw his candidacy more as a publicity stunt than a genuine effort to start a political career. Siniša Vuco was married twice and divorced once. Two songs, one inspired by his former, and one inspired by his present wife, became hits. Vuco has also written songs for others, some of which have become semi-hits, for example the song Stari Se was written by him for Thompson. In 2005 Vuco cut his long hair short, which he had been growing for many years, in order to be taken more seriously when discussing business in regards to his newly-purchased soccer team in Croatia.
He did this on advice from a colleague. Media in Croatia reported on his new appearance as going so far as to make Vuco look "sympathetic". Despite having cut his hair, he left his very short beard the way it was. Volim piti is one of his greatest hits, also translated in English, Swedish and Ukrainian.
One of his newer singles is Volim narodno in which he copied parts from popular song "We will rock you". Read more on Last.fm. User-contributed text is available under the Creative Commons By-SA License; additional terms may apply..
