Born in 1977 in a family of musicians, thanks to his brother Moreno (pianist, composer and music tea- cher) Marco Piccoli grows up listening to various genres of music: Matt Bianco, Genesis, Chick Corea, Electric Band, Emerson Lake and Palmer.
When teenager, he approaches hard rock music discovering bands as Bon Jovi, Guns’n’Roses, Aerosmith, Metallica, Dream Theater; this is the beginning of his journey as a self-taught musician embra- cing the world or rhythm and learning the first grooves with a drum set.
He starts playing in several bands, playing live in many local venus and theaters.
Passion for music is so strong that Marco can face and overcome a terrible car accident in 2004 and the loss of his leg foot.
In 2009 he finally finds in Methodica the right line-up to musically express himself at his best.
