Everything about Tico Torres
Translated by Erik (email@example.com)
Tico 'The Hitman' Torres had second thoughts in the beginning about forming a band around the young Jon Bon Jovi. "The guy was only 21 and hadn't really done anything. I had already jammed with Miles Davis, for example. And I had supported Chuck Berry. Before we started Bon Jovi I had already worked on 26 records! But the things Jon did on stage, and especially the response of the girls, pulled me over the line. That young god that was just waving to the chicks with his but, had something. I decided to join the band. For two hundred dollars a week".
The moments that Tico Torres leaves his drums alone, he's with Eva Herzigova, an incredible beautiful model from the former Czechoslovakia. Eva was the woman that the makers of the so-called Wonderbra used to promote their product. The wonderbra, the best invention since the Microwave oven, is a bra for women that gravity had it's play on. By creating a upward force in the bra.....anyway, let us not forget this is a music magazine!
'Wanted: dead or alive' is Tico Torres's favorite Bon Jovi song. "That song perfectly describes the true story to the band. I can't listen to the songs of the early days any more though, I guess that's something that every Musician has though."
Not only as a drummer Tico Torres flies high. He also has an official Pilot's licence.
