GG Allin Biography
Birthday: August 29, 1956 (Virgo)
Born In: Lancaster
Perhaps one of the most controversial names in the world of rock music, GG Allin was the symbol of rebellion and danger. He is till date remembered for his unconventional, notorious behaviour on stage that included indecent exposure, self-mutilation and harming audiences. A total anti-authoritarian, Allin’s music had many elements of lawlessness, substance abuse and violence. This infamous punk icon was arrested over 52 times on accounts of assault and indecent expose. He became a victim of substance abuse and depended heavily on alcohol. While many believe that his erratic behaviour was due to his troubled childhood and mentally unstable father, others speculate that he suffered from personality disorders that aggravated due to substance abuse. Nevertheless, Allin attracted large number of audiences for his musical performances. He released several albums in the spoken word style and traditional style rock, the lyrics of which were often known to be politically incorrect. He is referred to as ‘the most spectacular degenerate in rock & roll history'. Unfortunately, he lost his life at a young age of 36 to heroin overdose.
