Flaming Lips, New Years Eve setlist (Dec 31, 2008) (by Ruharvey)
Wayne Coyne was born on January 13, 1961 in Pittsburgh, the fifth of six children of Thomas and Dolores Coyne. Relatively uninterested in school, Coyne preferred music, painting, and football to his assignments. His brothers and other friends played in a backyard football team named the “Fearless Freaks.” He continued making art for many years, and designed many of the early graphics for The Flaming Lips himself (in recent times, he has also provided the artwork for both Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots and At War with the Mystics).
Coyne worked as a fry cook at a Long John Silver’s restaurant for 11 years, and was awarded a special badge to honor his service. Although he had been toying with an acoustic guitar since he was fourteen, it was this job which enabled him to purchase an electric guitar, a Les Paul, which he did after eight months of employment. Wayne was a senior in high school at the time. [Wikipedia]
