Personal Quote:

As a child, I lived in Germany at the Ramstein air force base, where my dad sang at a nightclub in Kaiserslautern. My parents couldn't afford a babysitter, so when I was, like, ten or 11, I would go with them to the bar until two in the morning. See more »

Trivia:

He sang backup vocals on several tracks on Modest Mouse's album We Were Dead Before the Ship Even Sank. See more »
