  • Early life

    Frederiksen's mother is Minna Dapello. He had a brother named Robert "Rob" Dapello, a writer for Zero Magazine and a fellow musician, who died in February 2001. The song "Otherside" off Rancid's 2003 album Indestructible is dedicated to Rob's memory. He was raised in Campbell, California, a town near San Jose, California.

    Personal life

    He married his girlfriend Megan in 1998. They divorced, and he is now married to Stephanie Snyder, who gave birth to their son, Wolfgang Erik Anders Frederiksen, on 11 September 2007. Frederiksen and his wife celebrated the birth of their second child, Soren Erik Adler Frederiksen on 27 October 2011. He is a fan of Millwall Football Club, and often has the Millwall lion on his guitar. He is also a San Jose Earthquakes season ticket holder. In January 2014, Lars and The Old Firm Casuals wrote the new team anthem/theme song for the San Jose Earthquakes titled "Never Say Die". Lars called the team the "punkest" team in MLS.

    Recently, Frederiksen had gotten involved with San Francisco's Project Homeless Connect, partnering with Tony Hawk to donate skateboards to teenagers in the family shelter.

    Frederiksen has expressed his personal dislike for signing to major record labels numerous times.

    Frederiksen appears in several episodes of Tim Armstrong's Tim Timebomb's Rock n Roll Theater as Dante. Lars can also be seen in the documentary film, The Other F Word. Lars is a longtime fan of professional wrestling. He is friends with retired professional wrestler CM Punk, and featured in the WWE produced documentary CM Punk: Best in the World.
