Brian molko is dating
Brian Molko (born 10 December 1972) is a British musician and songwriter who is lead vocalist and guitarist of the band Placebo.
Born in Brussels in 1972 to an American father and a Scottish mother, his father's career saw Brian frequently move around through his childhood, from Dundee to Liberia to Lebanon to Belgium.
And artistic expression was not encouraged in the Molko household, as Brian's father was hopeful that his son would follow in his footsteps and become a banker. "I come from a long line of bankers, yet when I was 11, I really got into acting and drama.
Brian Molko's father wanted him to follow in his footsteps and become a banker, but the Placebo frontman was determined to carve out a career in music instead.
Ahead of the band's gig next week, he tells Simon Fallaha why a desk job wasn't for him. But the distinctly passionate drive and soul of lead singer Brian Molko's high-pitched vocals, regularly accompanied by memorable opening guitar riffs, painfully prominent drum beats and bitterly provocative lyrics, transcends the mere idea of "pleasing everyone".
"When we formed in the mid-1990s, there were so many bands calling themselves after drugs, like Codeine. Then we saw about 40,000 people screaming our name out loud, and I actually thought it was kind of funny, because we'd sort of gone against the grain by naming the band after a drug that doesn't work!
