Kevin Wasserman was born the 4th of February in 1963 in Los Angeles. When he was 26 he was almost killed by a SkinHead, and many people thought he was dead. A curiosity: at the beginning he hadn’t become a member of The Offspring because of his abilty in playing the guitar but because he was 21, an age when in America you can buy alcohol legally!


Gregory David Kriesel was born on January 12, 1965 in the Orange County. He went to school with Dexter (as well as Noodles) and is keen on sports , in fact he particlary likes golf. He collects caps.

Ronald Welty was born the 1st of February in 1971 (Orange County, USA) and frequented the Pacifica High School with Dexter, Noodles and Greg-K. He’s vegetarian and smokes just “light” cigarettes. In 2003 he leaves The Offspring to dedicate at an alternative project: a new upbeat band called Steady Ground.

Marco, I'm sorry but I'm going to have to remove some of the information since it's about their personal lives. We're not allowed to talk about that on here.

I don't know how this translation will turn out, but it's atleast something...
I skipped the parts not involving The Offspring.

"The Offspring vocalist Dexter Holland was drunk and appeard dangerous when he left Café Opera and met the Big Brother star Linda Rosing. His bandpartner, guittarist Noodles, was so drunk he had to be led to the waiting transport to the hotel.
The celebreties' afterparty at Café Opera after yesterdays musicaward in TV3 got out of control.

-It was (ehh...?) and fighting. They threw glasses at us and hit towards me, says Big Brother-Linda Rosing to Expressen (Swedish newspaper) tonight.
<....some shit....>
When Linda was going to interview the american punkband Offspring's singer Dexter Holand he pushed her away. Then the bodyguards went to attack against Linda.
-All the ones from USA acted like real assholes, says Team Paparazzia's Richard Nilsson.
-The bodyguard just lift me up! The guys where rude and (?), says Linda Rosing.
<...some shit about Enrique Iglesias...>
Accoarding to someone, the punkband Offspring got so drunk they where lifted out of the bar.
<...some shit saying that the police arrived...>"

There you go.

You should visit wikipedia, there are some interesting facts, but remember to look if there's some reliable source. (There might be some bullshit also included)

aww shucks, thank you :o

back to trivia:
i came across contradictory info about dexter's Ph.D, one source says he has the degree other that he was just a candidate...i'm not sure what the truth is..on my site i wrote he was a candidate though....

as 4 noodles, this is teribble>>gettin' stabbed and all. guess it's not easy to be a rock-star...

No, he's just a candidate. I remember reading an interview in which Dexter talks about his PhD. If you want I can try to find it.

you could try and download the unauthorised biography "maximum offspring" that just gives you the offspring biography and its quite complete, not much about personal life, mostly about the band, its an audio cd, english voice, so I guess If you don't like the english accent you'll just have to do with it

I just had to ask.. How come you can write the word "assignment", but you shorten "something" to "sth"..? I just found that kinda weird :]

cause i don't know the abbreviation for 'assignment':D i often use abbreviations like sth , nth or ppl instead of something, nothing , people (it helps me note quickly during my lectures and i use it on web boards and forums as well:)

hope that clears it up:)

back to trivia ...? ;]
