TULIO FUZATO (The Double Amputee Drum... / Bio

BIOGRAPHY - Name: Tulio Fuzato Born: June 16th, 1957 in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil - Amputee (both legs) - STYLES & INFLUENCES: Ian Paice - Deep Purple, John Bohan - Led Zeppelin, Don Brewer - Grand Funk Railroad, and Lee Kerslake - Uriah Heep. HISTORY: I came from a very musical family. My father played guitar and my mother sang. I grew up listening to the Beatles and Hendrix, but my passion was the CLASSIC ENGLISH HARD ROCK such as Deep Purple, Led Zeppelin, Black Sabbath, Uriah Heep, Grand Funk Railroad, etc... But I confess that I also loved PROGRESSIVE ROCK BANDS such as Genesis, Pink Floyd, Yes, ELP, Jethro Tull, and European Bands such as Eloy, Nektar, Jane Le Orme, PFM, and others. Since I was 15, I learned to play guitar with my father, but I always loved the swing, rhythm, and the power hit of a drum. I didn't start playing drums until 1982 when I was 25 years old. After I got married, I started with music at night, while being a graphic designer by day. I became a double leg amputee in July, 2003. I ended up in a terrible accident with a train and as a result, had to fight for life against death, good against evil, and an attempt at daily self-will. Fortunately, this kind of amputation allowed me to still play the drums relatively easy with the use of prosthetics. I want to show through my story, the human beings ability to get overcome any obstacle. To overcome them and be back on his or her feet after a tragedy which may happen to any of us. I also want to show how much music can be a wonder possibility to all of us and how in my case, it ultimately made me decide to take action. "Determination" is my motto. I hope that my example gives inspiration to those who may have lost hope in life. www.tuliofuzato.com.br
