Biography

Eric Melvin, sometimes called Melvin for short, is one of two guitarists in the California punk band NOFX. He has been in the band from its beginnings in the early 1980s to the present day. Eric has been called a “true punk” in terms of his style, with dreadlocks that vary in color each time NOFX performs. Though most recognized for his ability to play the guitar, Melvin can also play the accordion.

In the early days of NOFX, Eric was meant to be the lead singer along with Fat Mike, but he gave up his role as a lead vocalist to focus on his guitar playing. His vocal style is called the “Mel Yell.”

Eric also plays in Punk Rock Karaoke with Steve Soto, Derek O’Brien and Greg Hetson where the motto is “We Play… You Sing!”
