Interview with Vinnie Fiorello from Less Than Jake
Vinnie Fiorello (born June 24, 1974) is an American drummer, lyricist and a founding member of the ska punk band Less Than Jake. As a child, Fiorello's family owned a dog named Jake who was "treated like a king" according to the band's website FAQ page. As a result, everything in the house became "Less Than Jake", spawning the band's name.
As the lyricist, Fiorello is generally regarded as the symbolic frontman for the band, despite being the drummer, and is usually the subject of any interviews with the band as it was he and Chris DeMakes, the band's guitarist, who founded the band at the University of Florida in 1992.
Fiorello has a daughter, Liliana Roseborn on September 3, 2011.
