The artist pictured in this yearbook photo is a New Jersey-born guitarist, who had a longtime gig slinging an axe alongside one of the godfathers of metal. He has since left that position, but he continues to make a racket in his own project.

He is such a fan of hard rock that two of his sons are named Hendrix and Sabbath, respectively.

With his gregarious, self-deprecating sense of humor, long beard and burly size, this berserker, born Jan. 14, 1967, hits the bullseye every time.
