TIMELINE

Gym Class Heroesbutton.gif (123 bytes) Gym Class Heroes began forming in 1997 in New York when Travis McCoy and drummer Matt McGinley started a friendship (in gym class) and got Milo Bonacci and Ryan Geise to join them in a band. Within a few years, two self-produced LPs (Hed Candy and Greasy Kid Stuff) were recorded. Bonacci and Geise were later replaced with guitarist Disashi Lumumba-Kasongo and bassist Eric Roberts. Gym Class Heroes got help to launch their success from Patrick Stump of Fall Out Boy.
