As a young jazz fan,
studying with Joe Morello, Tico never could have imagined the success
that would come his way. Even before he joined with Jon Bon Jovi in
1983, Tico had already parlayed his drumming into a successful career.
His studio and live experience with Frankie and the Knockouts, Pat
Chuck Berry, Cher, Alice Cooper, and Stevie Nicks helped to establish
him as one of the premier players, and even before meeting Jon, he had
played on 26 albums. Playing with Bon Jovi has simply been the icing
on the cake.
He met Alex John Such while playing with a band called Phantom's Opera,
and it was his friendship with Alex that led him to Jon. Although Jon
was (and still is) many years younger, Tico appreciated his charismatic
appearance and accepted the offer to join his band. What really convinced
him was watching Jon perform.
"The Hitman" Tico discovered another talent: painting. He has exhipted
his art since 1994. The successful first show was at the Ambassador
Galleries in Soho, New York. Tico is a self - tought painter, who paints
expressive pictures which show every days life and the life with the
Tico owns a fashion line for babies called Rock
Star Baby. Beside babyclothing, Rock Star Baby also produces
learning methods and cartoons.
Tico also has an official Pilot's licence.
His first marriage ended shortly after he joined the band. He then married
Eva Herzigova, a model from the former Czechoslovakia in Sea Bright,
New Jersey on September 7, 1996. The ceremony was attended by their
closest friends and family including the members of Bon Jovi. Jon and
the boys serenaded Eva and her hubbie with Always during the dance.
Unfortunately, blaming Eva's hectic modeling career, their marriage
ended 3 years later. Perhaps the thrid time is the charm, as Tico married
Maria Alejandra in September 2001.
