About Ian Thomas Garner MacKaye

American singer, songwriter, guitarist, musician, label owner, and producer Ian Thomas Garner MacKaye has an estimated net worth of $25 million.

Born on April 16, 1962, and raised in Washington, D.C., MacKaye discovered his love of music via multiple screenings of the popular movie documentary Woodstock. But it was a stint in Palo Alto, CA, that would indirectly change the course of MacKaye's life. His father had won a fellowship at Stanford University, so the family packed up for California, staying for nine months in 1974.

When MacKaye returned back to D.C., he was appalled to see that most of his old friends had transformed into drug-consuming juvenile delinquents. Instead of merely following the crowd, MacKaye rebelled against it (MacKaye soon found a kindred spirit in another D.C. youth, Henry Garfield, who would one day change his name to Henry Rollins). Although MacKaye was an avid fan of hard rock music (Led Zeppelin, Ted Nugent, etc.), it wasn't until he discovered punk rock that he finally decided that he wanted to give music a try himself.

Active since 1979, MacKaye is best known for being the frontman of the influential hardcore punk band Minor Threat, the post-hardcore bands Embrace and Fugazi, as well as The Evens. He is a co-founder and owner of Dischord Records, a Washington, D.C.-based independent record label.
