Last month, Brian Baker the tennis player was injured at the Australian Open. That Brian Baker was born in 1985, the same year another Brian Baker was just turning 19 year old, two years after Minor Threat had broken up. Seriously, mull that over. This other Brian Baker co-founded Minor Threat in 1980, when he was 15 years old. During a short hiatus in Minor Threat's career two years later, Baker played guitar for Government Issue & appeared on the Make an Effort 7".
World's Worst Minor Threat Drawing
After Minor Threat, Baker joined the "hard rock/sleaze rock" (?!?) band Junkyard. He also played and recorded with the Meatmen, Dag Nasty, Doggy Style, and Bad Religion. He was also a member of Samhain briefly. He did all of those things. That is so many things! Happy birthday, Brian Baker!
