Travis McCoy was born on August 5, 1981 in Geneva, New York by the name Travis Lazarus McCoy. He met Matt McGinley when he was in high school. The two bonded over their love of music and played in a band until Gym Class Heroes were officially formed in 2001.
With the band, he had productive years, dropping one album after another and touring in United States and across the pond. During his 2008 Warped Tours, he was arrested and charged with third-degree assault for allegedly hitting a concertgoers in the head with his microphone. After released on bail, he was quick to issue a public apology for what happened.
