On this day, July 28, 1976 Jacoby Dakota Shaddix entered this world.

Shaddix's early years were anything but charmed, at one point he and his family were homeless and lived in a car in California.

Fast forward to his teens and young Shaddix knew he wanted to play music and pursued it with a passion.

Against all odds, he battled through addiction, self harm, throat surgery and the near collapse of his marriage to his high school sweetheart Shaddix fought to keep his band, Papa Roach as one of the most prolific bands of the last twenty some odd years.

Today marks Jacoby's 40th birthday and what an amazing ride this guy has had.

Happy birthday sir, we can't wait to see what amazing things you have waiting for us next.
