From birth, Zyon and Igor both grew up on the road. Zyon didn't like it so much. He loved the music and the backstage, but the people overwhelmed him. He was one of the most famous metal babies of all time, and the fans mobbed him. He was their little dragon..he was the the future. He was at the Chaos Ad recording and every Sepultura tour after, until his Pops left. At the age of 3 he started writing his name and reading and asked to go to school and not tour. Igor, on the other hand, went to school late as he could and walked out the minute he turned 16. He never wanted to leave the road.

With all the kids in school, for some years there were no cell phones or even fax machines. Now with SKYPE and wifi it's much easier to check shizzle out at home. Every holiday or break we would fly everyone to where we were at the time. It was the best feeling to see everyone arrive! It was a routine to fly in and out, go in and out of school and blend it all together. When we went home, Max would go into the music class at the elementary school and I would go into the classroom and talk about different countries and their customs. When the kids were in high school, we even rode in a convertible in the Homecoming Day Parade!!!
