Josh Dun Facts

  1. He and his bandmate Tyler Joseph share a close relationship with their fans, who are known as skeleton clique. They even got “X” tattooed onstage during their 2013 concert in a nod to their fans.
  2. Before he found fame as a musician, he worked at Guitar Center for three years. It was there he met Chris Salih, the former drummer of Twenty One Pilots, who also used to work there.
  3. He used to play trumpet in middle school. He also learned to play keyboard, which was gifted by his father on Christmas, on his own.
  4. Josh became a part of the Twenty One Pilots band in 2011 after drummer Chris Salih and bassist Nick Thomas left the group due to the draining schedule.
  5. He first saw Twenty One Pilots perform at a club in Ohio State University campus. He had been invited by then drummer Chris Salih.
  6. He learned how to play drums on his own. He used to listen to records and then try to imitate the music on his electronic drum kit.
  7. While growing up, his parents had placed a restriction on the type of music, he could listen. If they ever found any inappropriate music (hip hop and rock), they used to take it away and instead make him listen to a Christian alternative.
  8. For the cover art of their album, Vessel, Josh and Tyler decided to feature their paternal grandfathers.
  9. In his early teens, he was a rebellious kid. His parents nearly kicked him out of the house and thought about getting him enrolled at a military school because he was always in detention in school and behaved awfully with his parents.
  10. The music video of the Twenty One Pilots was filmed at Dun’s childhood home. It made his house a destination for band’s diehard fans. His father even had to cancel landline after getting tired of calls at all times.
  11. Before performing on stage, Josh likes to wear red makeup around his eyes. He believes that his war paint represents his inner thoughts.
  12. Before he joined Twenty One Pilots band, he played drums for an Ohio-based alternative rock band, House of Heroes for about 7 months. Their regular drummer, Colin Rigsby took a break to spend more time with his family from March 2010 to October 2010.
