(No offence to the other Strokes memebers. I love you all. The Strokes is the best band EVER!)
Nick recieved his first guitar at the age of five, an acoustic, his first electric at age eight. By the age of thirteen he was already an accomplshed guitarist.
He met fellow bandmates Fabritzio Moretti, Nickolai Fraiture, and Julian Casablancas at a two year stint in prestigious Dwight School in Manhattan. Valensi joined The Strokes while still in High School, borrowing Hammond Jr's ID to get into clubs. He dropped out of college to pursue a full time musical career.
Nick has been described as "gorgeously cynical" and "Quite aware of his own good looks"
He lives in New York with his girlfriend Amanda De Cadenet and her daughter Atlanta.
Person A: Who's you favorite guitarist?
Person B: Nick Valensi
Person A: Why?
Person B: Because his mad skills far outstretch the confines of your feeble mind.
Person A: Oh, okay.
Example two -
Person A: Valensi appears to be able to fit the word 'like' in every other second.
Person V: Like, indeed.
