I was just wondering if there were any well known musicians out there that have one time served or are currently serving in any branch of any military.

i think i read John Lennon did...


Nah as a 10 year old kid he was in a "cadet corp", basically the equivalent of Boy scouts..but with the goal of getting the kids to join the military at age 18. Lennon never did join the military however. He left the cadets at 11 I believe?

Quite a few tuba/euphonium players. And trumpet players. And of course as soon as I said this I can't think to name a single one. God dammit.

Just because he's like my favorite person ever, I must point out he didn't serve in the military. I think he got his army jacket from the movie he was in, How I Won The War

If I'm not mistaken, Finland's military has a mandatory tour of duty for all males, so any musician from Finland has done a year or two in the military.


Same goes for Russia.

With Elvis/Cash/Presley- one must also remember they were conscripted or forced into it via criminal problems. None of them joined because they wanted to. They simply were forced to do it like most other adult males 18-45, and did because it helped boost their careers in the case of Elvis, and in the case of Hendrix it introduced him to Billy Cox who would become a lifelong friend and future bandmate.

One of greatest and most skilled drummer ever, Mike Mangini, played for Steve Vai before, was one of the programmers for the Patriot Missile Launch Protocol, not really defence force, more of a millitary intelligence.

When Jim Morrison went for his military examination, he took a whole bunch of drugs before hand so he'd fail all the physical tests, told them that he was a homosexual, and that if they sent him to the war they'd be the sorriest mother****ers on the planet.
