Jack Grisham

Jack Grisham (born 1961) is an American rock musician, raconteur and political activist. He is the vocalist for the punk band T.S.O.L. (True Sounds of Liberty), which emerged from the 1980s Los Angeles punk rock scene, along with Black Flag, Circle Jerks and Social Distortion. Grisham has also fronted the bands The Joykiller, Tender Fury and Cathedral of Tears. He currently records with T.S.O.L. and the Manic Low Grisham was born in San Francisco. His father, who died in 1984, was a career military man who spent 30 years in the Navy and Coast Guard. Grisham's mother was a military housewife. Grisham was one of five children and has an older sister, two older brothers, and a younger sister. Grishams older sister was part of the hippie subculture (or as he calls it, "Late 60's protest crap"). As a result, by the time he was six years old, Grisham was reading publications like Fritz the Cat and Zap Comix, and listening to albums by Frank Zappa and The Mothers of Invention, The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, and Bob Dylan. Grisham cites the albums We're Only in it for the Money and Let it Bleed as two of his musical influences.
