Jacoby Dakota Shaddix was born in Mariposa, California on July 28th, 1976, and is currently 32 years old. Shaddix is not only the lead singer of hard rock band Papa Roach, but he is working on a side project with a post-hardcore band called Fight The Skies, and he's the host of the popular show, Scarred.
Papa Roach released their debut album Infest in 1993, and have been a huge success ever since then. Papa Roach includes Jacoby Shaddix as the lead singer, Jerry Horton as the guitarist and back up vocals, Tobin Esperance on bass and back up vocals, and Dave Buckner on drums.
Jacoby IS married to Kelly Shaddix, and they have two beautiful children together, Makaile Ceilo Shaddix (born March 24th, 20002), and Jagger Shaddix (born September 13th, 2004).
Jacoby, like most rock stars, battled with a drug addiction during his career, but has reportedly been off of the drugs for quite sometime now. He has also admittedly been a victim of self-mutilation, and he was taken to a hospital in Las Vegas, and received 11 staples in his head from the worst act of self mutilation he had committed.
Everyone who knows Jacoby Shaddix, knows about all the tattoos. His most famous tattoo that he shows off proudly is the words "LOVE" tattooed across the knuckles of his right hand, and "HATE" tattooed across the knuckles of his left hand. His neck bares the Chinese character for love, which he explains in an episode of MTV's Crib's when they featured his home.
