He was born Chad Robert Turton in Hanna, Canada. Of course, we know him as Nickelback frontman Chad Kroeger. He learned how to play a guitar proficiently by the age of 13. In the early 90s, Chad was in a grunge cover band with his brother Mike and Ryan Peake. Since forming Nickelback, the boys have sold 50 million albums worldwide and rank as the 11th best selling music act of the 2000s. Chad is engaged to Avril Lavigne and they have become (not surprisingly) Canada’s royal couple of rock. Today is also the birthday of Bay Area rapper E-40. Earl Stevens was born in Vallejo, California. Who’s older? Kroeger or E-40??
