The amazing Alice Cooper guitarist Nita Strauss talked with Sweetwater about being one of the descendants of the Austrian classical composer Johann Strauss II.
Read what she said:
“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.”
