Wiki

Joel Rueben Madden (born Joel Rueben Combs; March 11, 1979) is an American singer, record producer, actor, DJ, and UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador, best known as the lead vocalist for the pop punk band Good Charlotte.

Madden was born Joel Rueben Combs in Waldorf, Maryland. He has an identical twin brother, Benji Madden, who plays lead guitar in their band Good Charlotte. He also has an older brother named Josh and a younger sister named Sarah. Madden attended La Plata High School in La Plata, Maryland.

Madden's father abandoned the family when he was 16, causing them financial hardship. He took up various odd jobs as a teenager in high school to help his mother with the family's bills. One job he and his brother Benji took up was washing hair at a salon. While in his early twenties, Madden and his siblings changed their last name from Combs, his father's last name, to his mother's maiden name, Madden. He did so to distance himself from his father.
