Dallon Weekes was born in Southern California. He grew up in foster homes and was homeschooled. He began playing guitar at a very young age and continued playing and writing music throughout high school and college. Dallon was influenced by many different musicians including: Huey Lewis, members of the Beach Boys, J.J. Johnson, Ray Vaughan, Joe Bennett, Buddy Holly, The Rolling Stones, and Cream.
Dallon Weekes first started playing bass after his parents divorced him from his mother when he was thirteen years old. He was homeschooled though and did not know how to play guitar and would play rhythm on his family’s radio until his father taught him. He then joined the alternative metal band Scum And Dirt. Dallon was supposed to be a singer, but he didn’t like the way the guitar sounded when he sang and ended up playing bass for them.
Dallon Weekes went on to play for various popular acts such as Motley Crue, Aerosmith, Skid Row, Megadeth, Black Sabbath, and even Metallica. During this time, he formed his own band called “Dallon and Friends.” They were famous for their extremely fast vocals and for using a multitude of effects that were new to the music scene at that time. Dallon developed a vocal style similar to that of Huey Lewis, using constantly changing syllables and rhythms. Dallon Weekes died in a car crash in 1996, only ten years after he formed his band.
