Neil Fallon (born October 25, 1971 in Gaithersburg, Maryland) is the lead singer and occasional rhythm guitarist, keyboardist and percussionist for the rock band Clutch, and lead singer for super-group The Company Band. He also joined The Bakerton Group on guitar since their last album El Rojo.

Biography

He and Clutch played at the 9:30 Club in Washington, D.C. as early in their career as 1991,[2] and bandmate Jean-Paul Gaster appeared in the documentary 930 F Street about the history of the club.[3] Neil is known for his harsh, raspy, and deep vocal style. Neil writes most if not all of the bands lyrics. Clutch's lyrics, at first angry and serious in tone, had by the time of 1993's Transnational Speedway League become characterized by intelligence, wordplay, and often humor (although comedy is not usually the focus). Their songs make frequent reference to history, mythology, popular culture, and religion: for example, "I Have the Body of John Wilkes Booth", from their self-titled album, tells the story of a fisherman who discovers the corpse of Lincoln's assassin in the Susquehanna River, and Jam Room's "Release the Kraken" inserts a hero called "Useless the Younger" into the movie Clash of the Titans. At other times the lyrics contain some very surreal imagery, as in this quote from Robot Hive/Exodus's "Burning Beard": "Every time I look out my window/ same three dogs looking back at me. Every time I open my windows/ cranes fly in to terrorize me."

His younger sister, Mary Alice Fallon-Yeskey, is employed at Charm City Cakes, and appears on the Food Network series Ace of Cakes.
