Mike Watt Biography

Wiki Biography: Mike Watt was raised in San Pedro, California, where he created the legendary punk rock band, Minutemen, with D. Boon and George Hurley in 1980. The trio went on to release 11 albums in less than six years and toured maniacally, but then the tragic death of Boon in late December of 1985 caused their abrupt demise. Watt and Hurley continued to play together in a new band called "Firehose" with Ed Crawford from 1986 until their eventual break-up in 1994, releasing five studio albums during that time. Mike put out his debut solo record in 1995, with the musical participation of friends like Nels Cline, Mike D, Flea, Petra Haden, Adam Horovitz, Krist Novoselic, and Stephen Perkins. Watt has recorded with countless extraordinary musicians over the years and he has also appeared in some Raymond Pettibon films as well.
