The amazing Alice Cooper guitarist Nita Strauss talked with Sweetwater about being one of the descendants of the Austrian classical composer Johann Strauss II.
“The composer Johann Strauss… So ever since I was a child – I come from a musical family, my dad’s a musician, he’s the one who taught me how to play the guitar. We listened to Strauss constantly in the house”.
“We listen to classical music and I love having that as my background because it gives me that drive. If your uncle or your grandad is Joe Montana you’re gonna want to throw a pretty tight spiral. [Laughs] So having something like that, having that kind of legacy to be a part of definitely is a big drive for me.”
I am a Brazilian journalist, a Classic Rock and Heavy Metal lover. Music has always been part of my life, helped me through tough moments and was with me to celebrate the good ones. When I became a journalist I knew I wanted to write about my passions. After college I did a postgraduate degree in digital communication. This has helped me to make the website better and bring the best of classic rock to the world! MTB: 0021377/MG
