Born: January 18, 1982

Quinn Cody Allman grew up in Orem, Utah. Just like frontman Bert McCracken, he was raised in a Mormon family. At a young age, Quinn started playing in bands. His first band was a band called “Hey Santos!”. Quinn is influenced by bands such as Face to Face, Goldfinger, Thursday, Kenna, Weezer, Jimmy Eat World, and New Transit Direction. He is a former vegetarian, but he supports PETA. He has made a video on the PETA website promoting vegetarian diet and is against eating meat because of the cruel conditions of the animals. In an interview with CraveOnline, Allman has stated that he thinks animal cruelty sucks, but he eats meat because he’s already too overwhelmed with his own problems to worry about something that won’t ever change, but he does enjoy soy meat and milk and substitute it regularly. Singer Bert McCracken of The Used describes him as a “truly spiritual and warm” individual.

 

Quinn has stated before that he enjoys being a musician and if we wasn’t in The Used, he would still be making music. On April 16, 2011, The Used stated on their Twitter page that Allman was getting married to former American Idol contestant, Megan Joy. The couple later married on August 21, 2011.

 

Alongside The Used, Quinn manages a side project, a band he discovered entitled Evaline, which played on the 2006 Warped Tour. Evaline is also one of the bands on the 2007 Taste Of Chaos Tour, playing alongside The Used, Saosin, 30 Seconds to Mars, Chiodos and Aiden.
