Brian Elwin Haner Jr. (Huntington Beach, Orange County, California, United States, July 7, 1981), better known by his stage name Synyster Gates , is an American guitarist known for being the lead guitarist, showgirl and co-founder of the metal band, Avenged Sevenfold. He is the son of famous guitarist and composer Brian Haner. He was also the guitarist of his best friend band (The Rev) Pinkly Smooth in 2001.
Brian was born in Huntington Beach, Orange County, California. His first guitar was given by his grandparents, one of the first songs he learned was “Stairway to Heaven”. Most of the songs were transcribed by himself and in sixth grade, he already played by ear.
He met the rest of the band through Jimmy The Rev Sullivan. The Rev and Synyster Gates met in a metal shop in 8th grade, when Jimmy began to make fun of him, but when the two began to speak, they realized that both were musicians and became almost inseparable friends. He admits openly that he was not good at school. Brian graduated and attended the Institute of Musicians, in Hollywood, as part of the Guitar Institute Of Technology program, the study of jazz guitar. Until that moment he was mainly self-taught watching music videos and reading books, which is surprising because his father is a great composer and guitarist.
Half a year later, he got a phone call from Jimmy (and the rest of the current Avenged Sevenfold lineup) asking him to meet and join Avenged Sevenfold as a guitarist. Brian joined them instead of continuing his education and becoming a studio musician.
Gates has German and Spanish descent.
He is married to Michelle DiBenedetto
Gates quotes Django Reinhardt, Yitzhak Rochin, Frank Gambale, Jimi Hendrix, Jimmy Page, Tony Iommi, Brian May, Slash, Dimebag Darrell, Randy Rhoads, Zakk Wylde, Alexi Laiho, Jani Liimatainen and John Petrucci as their favorite guitarists and greater influences.
In addition, Gates mentions, in a recent interview with the Argentine rock magazine “Jedbangers”, the Finnish melodic metal band Sonata Arctica as his “favorite band of all time”. His favorite song Bohemian Rhapsody of the group Queen.
Gates has numerous tattoos, the first one was a “1” on his thumb at age 15, hidden from his parents, the second was the word “Blueblood” on top of the left nipple, just below the “FOREVer” tattoo in honor to his late friend and former drummer of Avenged Sevenfold, James Owen Sullivan. He has several monster tattoos on his arms, which means all the fears he has or has had (it is worth mentioning that as a child, he thought of having several tattoos, but that he never thought he would get to that “ridiculous”). On his fingers he has the word “Marlboro” and behind the ear the number 7 “VII”.
