Biography

Active: 1990s
Country Of origin: United States of America
Group Members: Josh Freese

A couple years after Epitaph honcho Brett Gurewitz exited Bad Religion, he formed the Daredevils with guitarist Gore Verbinski (the Little Kings), journeyman drummer Josh Freese (the Vandals, Devo, Paul Westerberg, Wayne Kramer), and bassist Dean Opseth (Medicine). Formed with the intention to release a number of two-song singles, the Daredevils released one such thing in early 1996 with Hate You. The A-side, a scathing song in the vein of the Soft Boys' "I Wanna Destroy You," was rumored to be about Bad Religion bassist Jay Bentley. Unfortunately, nothing more surfaced from the band. Gurewitz rejoined Bad Religion for 2002's The Process of Belief, which found the band back on Epitaph. Verbinski, who has directed videos for the likes of Bad Religion, furthered his career behind the camera by directing movies such as The Mexican and winning several Clio Awards. Freese continued to work as a session drummer, in addition to his full-time membership in A Perfect Circle and additional involvement with Guns N' Roses. ~ Andy Kellman~ Rovi
