From Wikipedia, the free Encyclopedia

Brian Baker was one of the founding members of the seminal hardcore punk rock band Minor Threat. He first played bass, but in 1982 moved to guitar when Steve Hansgen joined the band, then back to bass after Hansgen's departure. He later formed Dag Nasty in 1985, had stints in: Doggy Style, The Meatmen (with fellow Minor Threat member Lyle Preslar), Government Issue, and Junkyard (a hair metal band). In 1994, he was offered a touring spot with R.E.M. but declined, accepting instead an offer to replace Brett Gurewitz as guitarist for Bad Religion. He continues to play in Bad Religion, with occasional appearances for Dag Nasty.

As a 12 year-old living in Michigan, Brian had once actually jammed on stage with guitar legend Carlos Santana.

After Minor Threat broke up, Baker & Preslar tried a more pop direction influenced by U2, with band called 400, before joining The Meatmen.

He also played with Samhain.
