Tony Liotta is a native Italian. Liotta was born in a family of artists. Maybe that explains he became a multitalent. Liotta grew up in New York and New Orleans - the heart of Jazz, right around the corner the legends of rhythm. Here he soaked up the southern music. Lucky Tony Liotta could learn from the pope of drumming itself, Buddy Rich. Buddy still is his great idol. In the age of three Tony Liotta began playing the drums and never stopped.
