Deciding that he wanted more out of life, Avalon decided to move back to Los Angeles and make a final attempt to clean up his act.
It was shortly after this return to Southern California that Avalon met Simon Rex and began to gain recognition for his music.
Got to chill with him during Portishead's set last year... Shaun Ryder reading his own lyrics off a monitor like it was karaoke and so was Avalon. While battling drug addiction, Avalon moved in with his sister (also a drug addict) with the hope that they could aid each other in recovery.During this time, his sister relapsed and died from a heroin overdose.and for the record Mickey Avalon is a fuckin douchebag that can't rap and Dirt Nasty is an idiot who couldn't succeed at regular acting so he tried doing gay porn couldn't succeed at that and now is trying something just as gay. They just sold out there 4 shows in Australia , 1300 to 2000 people at the gigs.
