Meet Thrash

Nobody bangs their head in perfect unison to a hardcore beat like Thrash, the bone-rattling bass player of punk metal band The Reapers. Comprising the second half of its rocking rhythm section (with drummer Redbone Ramone beating the skins next to him), Thrash makes Flea, Geddy, Geezer, Lemmy, and Bootsy sound like amateurs. Here's what we know about this bony bassist beast:

  • Famous for: Turning it up to “11”
  • Claim to fame: Works his fingers to the bone on guitar
  • Dirty little secret: Has lots of female skeletons in his closet
  • First band: Johnny Jawbone and the Metatarsals
