I was raised on country sunshine, I was raised on rock and roll. Born under the sign of Pisces on February 21,1961, Michael "Stix" Fortunato wasted no time in driving his parents and teachers crazy by his "constant tapping" and other "annoying behavior. His report cards from school often identified Mike's need to work on his "self control". It was at a 4th grade music assembly that Mike was first exposed to his first live rock concert. Soon after, he started taking drum lessons, despite his father's calls to "play the flute" because it was easier to carry around.
Mike has played and recorded with the ska band "Bob", Psychodelic bands "Paisley Jungle" and Free Love Society, wedding band "Free n Easy", and the punk DOT. Mike likes to take luxurious bubble baths and sort his sock drawers on Sundays afternoons.
Mike rocks with a 60's vintage 4-piece Slingerland Black Pearl Kit.
