||Well, here he
is folks, The Dickies new sticksman - Anthony Biuso, or Tiny to
you and me...
Fresh out of a stint playing as house drummer at LA's Cat Club (where
he's jammed with the likes of Brian May and Billy Sheehan), he has
joined the band in time to play on the forthcoming Fiend Fest with
the Damned and the Misfits.
|A few words from the man himself:
"Well lets see...I was born in Queens, New York in 1970.
Raised on The Clash, AC/DC, Beatles, Sex Pistols, Kiss and Motorhead.
My earliest ambition was to play drums and entertain people, it
was never about status or girls, at 10 years old you arent too motivated
by greed or status!
Went to school on Long Island after two "brutal" years
in catholic school in Queens. "I got my ass kicked every day
before school in first grade"!
Moved to Los Angeles in 1988 to go to Musicians Institute, I quit
after 6 months to join Rude Awakening, a hardcore/thrash group who
toured for the next 3 years. After that I joined a group called
Full Metal Racket, who made a brief appearance on the 98 Warped
Tour. Toured Europe with Rude in 98 and 99. Recorded albums for
MC Wren (from NWA), Lindsey Troy (Electra)and Popa.
Can't wait to see the Dickies fans in my face this summer.
Come one, come all. Peace, out..."
