John Doe met Exene Cervenka at the Venice poetry workshop in 1976 and started working with Billy Zoom around the same time. When DJ Bonebrake joined X in mid-1977, the lineup was complete of one of the best bands in the first wave of L.A.’s flourishing punk scene. As one of the last original punk bands standing, they continue to tour, most recently on their 40th anniversary tour and with Blondie and Pearl Jam in front of stadium-sized crowds and audiences born after the band’s formation. Doe has recorded eight solo records with numerous renowned singers and musicians and as an actor has appeared in over fifty films and tv productions, including Road House, Great Balls of Fire, Boogie Nights, and Roswell. He currently tours as both a solo artist and with X. John Doe lives in Austin, Texas.
