    More Details Hide Details Cool has also played in The Lookouts, Samiam and the Green Day side-projects The Network and the Foxboro Hot Tubs. Frank Edwin Wright III was born in Frankfurt, Germany. He lived in Willits, California with his father and his older sister Lori. His father was a helicopter pilot during the Vietnam War. Wright's closest neighbor was Larry Livermore, who at the time was the singer of the punk band The Lookouts. When Wright was 12, Livermore recruited him as the drummer of The Lookouts and gave him the name of "Tre Cool", relying on both the French word "très" (meaning "very") combined with the word "cool". However, the silent "s" has been dropped in the spelling, as a play on the "third" in his name. A common misconception is that Larry Livermore gave Tre Cool his full nickname; however, he was known as "Tre" long before he joined The Lookouts.
