Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Jesse Michaels (born April 2, 1969) is a songwriter, vocalist, guitarist and artist from Berkeley, California. He is the son of the late author Leonard Michaels. His lyrics deal with politics, racism, and general social issues. In February 1987 he published his first fanzine, "Kill Deal for 50 Cents." Later that year he formed Operation Ivy with guitarist Tim Armstrong, bassist Matt Freeman, and drummer Dave Mello. They quickly became a popular band especially at the Berkeley punk club 924 Gilman Street. In 1988 they released their first EP Hectic on which Jesse wrote all the songs. It was followed with an American tour which brought their work all around the country, and made Operation Ivy a very well respected group. After their return they recorded their first LP Energy. In 1989 Operation Ivy broke up, and Jesse later formed Big Rig in 1994.show more
