Hunter Burgan Biography

Hunter Lawrence Burgan was born on May 14, 1976 in Long Beach, California, and he grew up in Grass Valley, California.

Hunter played bass for The Force, and was asked to temporarily play for AFI in in 1997. The Force broke up in 1998, and he became a permanent member of AFI, who he has recorded nine albums with. A lover of Prince’s music, Hunter has his own side project called ‘Hunter’s Revenge’, where he sings early-80s style R&B.

On top of the bass, Hunter Burgan can also play drums, guitar, saxophone and piano. He was the drummer and one of the founding members of The Frisk, who disbanded in December 2005. He was also the drummer of the Nevada City, CA band ‘Badical Turbo Radness’ (BTR) in the early ’90s.

Hunter Burgan is a vegan, and co-created the vegan shoe line by Macbeth Footwear. He has numerous tattoos on his body, including a snake and a tribute to Marvin Gaye (the words “What’s Going On”) on his left forearm, and a winged skull on his chest.

And, again, he is not dating or engaged to actress Zooey Deschanel.
