    Famous Straight Edge people?

    Does anyone know of any famous people who claim straight edge? Obviously I mean other than hardcore sXe bands because they're all common knowledge in the scene and such, but I was thinking more people who aren't in hardcore bands and just people who aren't in music at all if there are any. I can't imagine there are too many but was wondering if anyone knew of any?

    The only people I've found are Davey Havok and Jade Puget from AFI, and CM Punk the wrestler. James Hetfield, front man of metal band Metallica, also follows the lifestyle traits now but I'm not sure if he'd actually claim to be sXe.

    since everything I know I learned from wikipedia anyway
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Categor...ge_individuals
    also
    J Mascis from Dinosaur Jr I read is straight edge.
    Some people are just not drinking or using drugs ever and that is respectable too.

    There's plenty of famous people who live a straight edge like lifestyle, but they don't claim it.

    I think what you just said doesn't make really any sense.

    first "straight edge like lifestyle" isn't exactly straight edge lifestyle and then, even if they claim it, that obviously doesn't make them straight edge

    One famous person i just found out recently who is Straight Edge and supposively in Courage Crew is Howard Jones from Killswitch Engage. I was reading an interview on a Straight Edge website with the vocalist for Bleeding Through and he is also Straight Edge along with 4 other members in the band who are also in Courage Crew.

    dudes involved in hardcore/metal I wouldn't really call famous though.

    Oh true, but i figured i'd still post it because i didn't know those guys were Edge. Also, i didn't know if anyone else was aware.

    Wow can't believe this hasn't been posted but there's a WWE wrestler named CM Punk. He's openly straight edge as his "wrestling character" and has Straight Edge tattoos clearly visible on his body when he tattoos.

    Not I don't watch wrestling anymore(haven't since I was a kid during the Stone Cold, The Rock, Mankind...etc era) but I've seen his name come up several times in some Straight Edge search queries.

    Here's his Wikipedia page

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/CM_Punk

    Edit
    Also just wanted to add in Andy Flag from Anti-Flag is straight edge? Wow, never would have known from their music!

    Also, since when has Henry Rollins been straight edge? (I know he's matured up since Black Flag and whatnot but I didn't know he classified himself as edge.)
