About Guy Picciotto
American singer, songwriter, guitarist, musician, and producer,Guy Picciotto has an estimated net worth of $14 million.
Ian MacKaye is arguably the most recognizable name when it comes to Fugazi (and quite possibly, all of Washington D.C. hardcore), but that’s not to say that his Fugazi band mate, singer/guitarist Guy Picciotto, hasn’t contributed significantly to the group as well.
Born in D.C. on September 17, 1965, it was a local Cramps show in 1979 that inspired Picciotto to get involved in the punk scene (strangely enough, MacKaye was at the same show and also lists it as a life-changing event), while further Clash and Bad Brains gigs convinced him to form his own band. Soon after, Picciotto befriended school classmate/drummer Brendan Canty, resulting in the formation of such obscure groups as Black Light Panthers and Insurrection. It was also around this time that Picciotto first met MacKaye, right around the time of the formation of hardcore groundbreakers Minor Threat.
As a result, MacKaye signed Canty and Picciotto’s next group, the Rites of Spring, to Minor Threat’s label, Dischord. Formed during the spring of 1984, the Rites of Spring was an incredibly short lived group, who only managed to issue a full length (1985’s Rites of Spring) and a seven inch single (1986’s four-track All Through a Life), but proved to be incredibly influential, especially years later with emocore bands.
