This english punk rocker was raised in New York City, USA. After his sister was born his family moved back across the pond, where he fell in love with the english punk scene. He played guitar for the band Generation X. After the band breaks up, he takes his shot at being a lead singer and with the help of some local musicians, he ditched the glasses, bleached his hair and bought a studded leather jacket. After several radio hits in America and back in his homeland of England, he started branching out and became one of the most played artists on a brand new television channel, MTV. With the popularity of his music videos, his stardom skyrocketed. He could be scene in movie, tv and live performances around the globe. While on vacation in Thailand, he and his friend Harry Johnson accidentally buy heroin, piss off the President of Cambodia and are forcibly removed by the Thai Army after 3 weeks of drugs, alcohol and prostitutes.
