WHO THE HELL IS THIS GUY, TOOTHLESS GEORGE?
Toothless George has been performing as a punk rock musician since 1988. He was the principal songwriter for THE HALFLINGS featuring members of the TEEN IDOLS (Fat Wreck Chords) and THE QUEERS (Asian Man Records) He also was with the now legendary STRYCHNINE BABIES featuring Christian Black (DEE DEE RAMONE Band, CHELSEA SMILES)
He is currently performing as a one-man band, simply titled TOOTHLESS GEORGE & HIS ONE-MAN BAND. In that band, he plays guitar, bass drum, snare drum, two tambourines, harmonica, and sing simultaneously. He has been touring internationally with that project since 2003, and has garnered a lot of respect from fans of Country Music, Punk Rock, and even Metal. “Train Wreck”, the second song ever recorded as his one-man band, was featured as the opening song in the Warner Bros. movie, Flogging Margarette.
In March 2013, he celebrated his ten year milestone by performing one show only as a TEN-MAN BAND! (A live record and DVD were also at that show.)
Toothless George doesn't stop at promoting himself as just a musician. His name is also recognized as the author of the musician's guide book, "Band Together" (STB Publishing), a professional skateboarder (Conformist Skateboards), and as one of the founding members & referee for The Philly Roller Girls roller derby league. In 2007 he was awarded The Barrymore Award for Excellence in Theater for a musical he helped to write, and performed in. He has been featured as a background character in many television shows. He is also an accomplished graphic designer. Some design credits include: Philly Roller Girls (logo), Motor Montenegro Jeans (print ads) Kid Dynamite (shirt design) Sailor Jerry Clothing (shirt design) Rob Zombie (shirt design) and many others.
Though it may seem out of character for him, musically, he has secretly ghost-writing for a few semi-well known rappers, and produced beats for them as well. He has released a dance mash-up mix tape, called “Mash From Chaos”.
Just so you don’t think he is moving away from his punk rock and country roots, he is in the studio mixing the live Ten-Man Band album, and is writing songs for a new punk rock album.
He currently lives in San Diego, CA, and continues to perform and record regularly.
