Nita Strauss talks about being a descendant of Johann Strauss II

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.”

I'm a Brazilian journalist who always loved Classic Rock and Heavy Metal music. That passion inspired me to create Rock and Roll Garage over 6 years ago. Music has always been a part of my life, helping me through tough times and being a support to celebrate the good ones. When I became a journalist, I knew I wanted to write about my passions. After graduating in journalism from the Pontifical Catholic University of Minas Gerais, I pursued a postgraduate degree in digital communication at the same institution. The studies and experience in the field helped me improve the website and always bring the best of classic rock to the world! MTB: 0021377/MG
