Born on November 25, 1966 in Albany, California. Tim Armstrong is the lead singer/guitarist of both Rancid and Transplants. Used to be the guitarist for the ska/punk band Operation Ivy. After OPIV's downfall in 1989, Tim turned to drugs and alcoholism. His best friend and bassist of Rancid, Matt Freeman helped Tim dig himself out of the hole he was in and helped him form Rancid in 1991. He married Brody Dalle in 1997 and helped her form The Distillers. They divorced in 2003 after she was seen making out with Josh Homme, lead singer of QOTSA. Tim now lives in L.A., owns Hellcat Records and his own recording studio called Bloodclot Studios.
Tim Is My Hero And A Punk Rock God!
the lead singer of the excellent punk band Rancid
why is it that as soon as a band has any sort of success they are apparently "sell-outs"?
Tim is explaining his life and his thoughts about what he thinks out loud in the voice of music. He was a loner when a teenager, hardly had any friends or any money and music was his only survival. You say Tim Armstrong is a sellout? Well, fuck you, because Tim is punk in his own righteous way, being the fact that he is himself. That's what makes you punk. Tim listens to and is friends with the casualties, the uk subs, and was with the ramones, hence that they played with them. Now shut your gobs about the fact that he is or is not punk, or a sellout, hes doing what he loves doing, and is punk for doing so. Just because he's a sellout, does that make him 'not punk'? I think not.
