Mickey Avalon's life story plays out like an episode of VH1's "Behind The Music". Marred by personal tragedy, triumphs and extreme pain, life started to turn around for Avalon when he was befriended by ex-MTV VJ Simon "Dirt Nasty" Rex, who began passing out Avalon's demo to clubs around Los Angeles. Before long, Avalon had developed a following among fans of the L.A. nightclub scene. His popularity grew, and fan favorites like "Jane Fonda," "Mr. Right" and "My Dick" quickly spread across the internet and clubland. Now, Avalon has toured with acts like Snoop Dogg, Red Hot Chili Peppers and more, and his music has been featured in countless movies and TV shows.
