Biography

King Lizzard was born and raised in Detroit, the city Rolling Stone magazine calls “the Liverpool of America, a gritty industrial city producing hard, loud rock since the 60’s.”

In 1973 he moved to California, where he went college on an acting scholarship and gained degrees and honors in Film and Theatre Production.

Weaving music, theatre and multimedia together, King has worked professionally in the film and music business for over thirty years. He has acted in major motion pictures, the live stage, and has performed before stadium and arena crowds.

From 1979-1982 he was bass player and co-songwriter for the band, Legacy (signed by a major label). They opened for top acts nationwide but never achieved headline status.

The Band broke up and King concentrated on acting and film production, his first love.

In 1997 he left California for Las Vegas and took up the axe again, as King Lizzard. In 1997-1999 he was the songwriter/ keyboardist for the techno-pop band “Living Karma.” From 1999-2002 his vision got darker and louder with the Industrial/ Metal “King Lizzard’s Hearts of Darkness Band.”

He has written and produced over 100 Songs, Produced a film (The Last Day, 1983) and written 7 Screenplays.

In 2001 the title of “Las Vegas’ Godfather of Metal” was bestowed upon him
