Biography


Staind were first formed in Springfield, Massachusetts in 1995 and their line-up remained intact 16 years later. Vocalist Aaron Lewis and guitarist Mike Mushok met at a Christmas party in 1993. Mushok introduced Lewis to Jon Wysocki who would later become their drummer. Lewis in return made a connection to bass player Johnny April. As a young band, they covered songs by Korn, Rage Against the Machine and others, performing them in small clubs.

Staind released their first album called "Tormented" in November 1996 and the effort delivered them a name in the industry. The big break came when they were set to open for Limp Bizkit's concert. Bizkit's frontman Fred Durst was first appalled by the band's album cover art, which indicated that they were Satan worshipers, and asked them to be removed from the bill, but he was softened up as soon as hearing their performance. Durst even convinced them to travel to Jacksonville, Florida, to work on new songs.
