From Wikipedia, the free Encyclopedia

David Pirner is the lead vocalist for the band Soul Asylum. He was born on April 16, 1964 in Green Bay, Wisconsin. He also contributed to the soundtrack of Kevin Smith's 1997 film Chasing Amy. Dave started his career with a punk band called "Loud Fast Rules" as part of the Minneapolis scene together with Karl Mueller (bass), Pat Morley (guitar), and Grant Young (drums). They later changed their name to Soul Asylum. Soul Asylum wrote many songs, but their real success arrived with the 1992 hit-single "Runaway Train" off of the 1992 album Grave Dancer's Union. The video for the song featured stills of missing children against the backdrop of a baby being kidnapped from a young mother. At the time the band was called "the best live band in America". Also during the same time Dave Pirner was dating movie star Winona Ryder and subsequently made a cameo appearance in the 1994 film Reality Bites.

In 2003 Dave released his first solo album entitled Faces And Names on Ultimatum records.
