Biography

Monster Magnet singer Dave Wyndorf was so attached to this one Wham-O toy that he decided to name his band after it. Formed in 1989, Monster Magnet introduced the world to their heavy stoner rock rooted in the seventies. Their first full-length, ‘Spine of God’, is still regarded as a landmark in stoner rock. On stage, Monster Magnet habitually play all their classic tunes such as 'Dopes to Infinity', 'Negasonic Teenage Warhead' and 'Spacelord’. Now the only remaining founding member, Dave Wyndorf recently celebrated his 60th birthday and Monster Magnet has been around for nearly half that time. Even after all those years, Monster Magnet are showing no signs of slowing down as illustrated by their most recent offering, 2013’s ‘Last Patrol’, which was easily one of the best stoner albums of the year.
