Gwen Stefani was born in Orange County, California on October 3, 1969. As she was growing up she was strongly influenced by "ska" and "punk" music. She grew up with her Mom, Dad, two brothers(Eric, and Todd), and one sister, Jill.

When Gwen graduated from high school she attented "Cal State Fullerton College".

Her band "No Doubt" was started by her brother Eric Stefani, and a friend of his John Spence in 1987. Gwen joined later on as lead singer. Even later, Tony, Adrian, and Tom joined the band. They released their first album "No Doubt" in 1992. Their second album "The Beacon Street Collection" was later released. Then in 1995 they released their most popular album, "Tragic Kingdom" which topped the charts all over Canada and the US.

Eric Stefani, Gwen's brother left the band after the release of Tragic Kingdom to persue a career of his own and was replaced by Phil Jordan and Gabe McNair who went on tour with the band.

Gwen used to date bass player in the band Tony Kanal. When they broke up she wrote the hit single "Don't Speak" in memory of their relationship. She wears a necklace with the letter "G" on it representing her boyfriend Gavin Rosedale's initial.

Gwen is often looked at in the wrong way. "I think I've been able to fool a lot of people because I know I'm a dork. I'm a geek."-Quotes Gwen

In 2000, the band released Return of Saturn. The CD was loaded with tons of new sound, great lyrics, and ofcourse what all No Doubt fans want...Gwen! The album was definately a step up from their previous release, the songs were more mature, and the music had grown. The album was a great release and holds it's own against their most popular release, Tragic Kingdom.

It is obvious that Gwen and her band No Doubt have a lot of talent and we will just have to wait and see what the band holds in store for us next album.
