Christian Martucci was born on June 5, 1977 and has been performing with Grammy-nominated rock band Stone Sour since early 2014. Brought up in a family of musicians, Christian began playing guitar when he was 5 years old. He cites Ace Frehley, Jake E. Lee, Fast Eddie Clarke, and Johnny Ramone as some of his early influences. Shortly after relocating to Los Angeles from Philadelphia in 1999, Christian toured the world with legendary Ramones bassist/songwriter Dee Dee Ramone. He later co-founded punk rock supergroup Black President and hard rock band Thousand Watt Stare. Over the years Christian has captured the attention of some of the worlds most influential musicians with his aggressive blend of 70's punk, classic rock, and heavy metal precision. Christian is currently in the studio with Stone Sour, which will mark his recording debut with the band. Outside of music he enjoys spending time with his family, traveling, and collecting guitars.
