Cranford Nix / Bio

Punk/Rock Musician. A native of Detroit, Michigan, he was the youngest of five other children (all girls), and the son of Cranford Nix Sr., a banjo player, who had played with the likes of bluegrass musicians Lester Flatt and Earl Scruggs. A follower of the likes of Elvis Presley, Kurt Cobain, Johnny Thunders, and Hank Williams Sr., his music consisted of rock and punk. In his search for fame and fortune he traveled to Manhattan, New York, San Francisco, California, San Diego, California, Hollywood, California, Florida, and even Europe, working as both a solo artist or a member of a group. Nix later formed the musical group, The Malakas, with DJ Holman, and Greg Crampton, and with them released two albums including, "Too Good To Be True" (2000), which was released on I-94 Record Label. The group was also known for their recordings including, "Satan Song", "I Want To Go Home", "Can't Find The Lord", "Wendy", "All I Want For X-Mas", "20 Flight Rock", "Born To Lose", "Met A Girl At N. A.", "Suicide Or Alcohol", and the controversial, "F##K You Lorraine." Known for his alcohol and drug abuse, Nix was often in trouble with the law including domestic abuse against his wife, drunken driving, and destruction of private property, among other things. On March 12, 2002, his troubles finally caught up to him. Nix was found dead of a drug overdose in his apartment at the age of 33. (bio by: K @ findagrave)
