    TWENTIES
  • 1982
    Age 25
    In 1982 Lawless switched to bass guitar and along with Randy Piper formed W.A.S.P. The lineup was soon completed with Chris Holmes on lead guitar and Tony Richards on drums.
    More Details Hide Details Before arriving at their current lineup, W.A.S.P. has undergone numerous lineup changes since its inception, with Lawless being the last remaining original member and chief songwriter. Many of his songs tend to deal with religious or apocalyptic themes, due to his Christian upbringing. Lawless has stated in recent interviews that he has returned to the Christian faith and considers himself a born-again Christian. Lawless cites influences which include AC/DC, Black Sabbath, the Beatles, Kiss, and Alice Cooper. His stage theatrics were influenced by Alice Cooper and Kiss. W.A.S.P. was no stranger to controversy, and Lawless found himself defending heavy metal music against a cadre of politicians (and their wives) in the mid-80's. But beyond headlines and drama, W.A.S.P. enjoyed their biggest run of success during this period, releasing several singles over three albums from 1985 to 1988. The best known of these being "L.O.V.E. Machine", " I Wanna Be Somebody", and "Wild Child".

    In 1981, following Circus Circus' failure, Lawless joined Lizzie Grey and Nikki Sixx's band London, with whom he played a few gigs and recorded two songs as demos, though by this time Sixx had already departed to form Mötley Crüe.
