There’s Kevin Wasserman, better known as Noodles, just strolling down a suburban street playing guitar. Noodles owes being in the band to his senior years – he was the school custodian, a few years older than the others, and while he couldn’t play guitar he could buy beer. In the early days of touring, when Noodles fell asleep the other band members would sometimes colour the lenses of his glasses with marker pens.
'Uno, dos, tes, cuatro, cinco, cinco, seis' is Spanish for “1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 5, 6”, which isn’t how numbers work. Holland had the phrase stuck in his head after an engineer kept saying it at a mic check in Buenos Aires.
Heyo, it’s Dexter Holland. Dexter was doing a PhD at the University of Southern California in molecular biology, and came within a dissertation of completing it before musical success took over. He is a huge fan of collecting stamps apparently, but only stamps from the Isle Of Man. No idea.
