Remember the Winklevoss Twins, the tech entrepreneurs and Olympic rowers who sued Mark Zuckerberg for allegedly stealing their Facebook idea? Well, they’re (not surprisingly) into crypto now, but more surprisingly, they’re also in a band, where they sing cover songs at dive bars.
Yes, the Winkelvosses have a band called Mars Junction, and this summer they’ll be butchering songs by Journey, Rage Against the Machine, and other artists in a city near you.
Their backing band seems fine, and Cameron Winkelvoss is even alright at guitar, but as the below clip of “Don’t Stop Believin'” shows, singer Tyler is, as Randy Jackson says, a little pitchy. He’s no Zack de la Rocha either, but it works for a laugh, and we probably shouldn’t expect a billionaire to have the righteous fury needed to fuel “Killing in the Name” anyway.
Just days after their cryptocurrency company Gemini laid off 10 percent of their staff, the brothers have lined more upcoming tour dates, and are apparently giving away NFTs to those brave enough to attend.
