Happy Birthday today (April 13) Aaron Lewis. The Staind frontman is 44. Other rockers celebrating include guitarist Marc Ford of the Black Crowes (50) and former W.A.S.P. guitarist Randy Piper (63).

Aaron Lewis is the frontman, rhythm guitarist, and founding member of the rock group Staind. Lewis' first full length solo release 'The Road' was released in 2012. Staind formed out of Springfield, Massachusetts in 1995 and have released seven studio albums. They’ve had five chart-topping singles and have sold over 40 million records worldwide. 2001’s ‘Break the Cycle’ is the band’s most successful album to date. The album spent three weeks at number 1 on the U.S. albums chart, and many weeks in the top 10 of the Billboard 200. It sold 5 million copies and was the best selling U.S rock album of that year. Hits from the album include ‘It’s Been Awhile’, ‘Fade’, and ‘Outside’.

Aaron Lewis has been doing country music as of late with Staind being on hiatus, but I saw him play a club show last year and he still performs many of the Staind hits. For more on Aaron Lewis, check out his official website here.
