Biography

Johnny Christ (born Jonathan Lewis Seward November 18, 1984) is the bassist for the heavy metal band Avenged Sevenfold, from Huntington Beach, California, in Orange County.

He is the third bassist for Avenged Sevenfold, following the departures of Dameon Ash and Justin Meacham. Christ is known for his mohawk hairstyle, which has recently been shaved. Now his hair is blonde and black. It was white, green and red. Occasionally, he is seen wearing a cowboy hat. He is the youngest and shortest member of the band, standing 5’4”. Christ plays an Ernie Ball Music Man Sterling Bass. He first recorded on their second CD Waking the fallen.

On the Avenged Sevenfold DVD, “All Excess” while the members of the band were talking about how they got their stage names, Johnny said that when he first joined the band he would always sign “Johnny” when he was signing autographs, and the other members were ragging on him, stating that he needed a last name. Eventually Zacky Vengeance came up with Christ and said; “Hey why don’t you become Johnny Christ?”, to which Johnny replied, “That’s REALLY ballsy, everyone’s gonna hate that; so I should definitely go with that.”

Johnny is the younger brother of a schoolmate of Synyster Gates. He recalled being in high school and being picked on by Syn and The Rev. Later, when Avenged Sevenfold was created, he came down to the garage where they constantly practiced and tried to impress them with his bass skills.
