Video Interview: A Conversation With Drummer Liberty DeVitto


On this episode of Tales From The Corners, I had the pleasure to speak with Drummer/Musician Liberty DeVitto. Liberty recently released an autobiography which chronicles his life growing up on New York’s Long Island through his days drumming for some of the biggest icons in the music industry. DeVitto most notably drummed for one of the biggest solo acts in recorded history — Billy Joel. The book also details Liberty’s personal triumphs and setbacks. 

In this episode, Liberty and I talk about those good times and the bad while having a bit of fun along the way. Please click the box below to view our conversation where we discuss the magic of the music and recount some of Liberty’s stories working with Billy as well as some other music legends including Sir Paul McCartney, Cyndi Lauper and Karen Carpenter.
