Biography of Jonathan Davis Throughout the music history musicians have written songs that reflect a part of their lives be it a part of their childhood or a love song Through the artists lyrics audiences can relate on a more personal level to what the musician is feeling For example John Lennon and Eric Clapton have written songs that directly reflect their own lives And in more modern music musicians have written lyrics about their childhood relationships and their mistakes Yet another example of a man whose highly personal lyrics reflect his life is Jonathan Davis Jonathan Houseman Davis was born on January 18 1971 in Bakersfield California He has a sister Alyssa a half-brother Mark a half sister and a stepsister His mother was an actress and dancer and his father Rick Davis was in a country band and later owned a music store which first interested Jonathan in music Jonathan spent most of his life growing up in Bakersfield where his brother Mark says theres nothing to do but drugs drinking and sex Circus Magazine April 22 1999 Davis parents got divorced when he was three Later both of them remarried His stepmother was very abusive towards him He claims that she hated his guts and would do everything she could to make his life a living hell When Jon was sick she would feed him tea with tabasco sauce she would make him drink it and say You need to burn that cold out boyCircus Magazine April 22 1999 Jonathan hated her so much that he began fantasizing about killing her As if his home life wasnt bad enough with his dad always touring and drunk when he was home and an abusive step mom Davis was tormented at school every day by his peers The other kids called him a faggot just because he looked different and wasnt a jock Anyone whose ever been picked on knows how much it
