Who's Your Daddy?

9/20/2009 6:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The 47-year-old was spotted out at an awards gala, looking strong as an ox.

Brandon gave up acting in 1980.

At one time, Cruz was the lead singer of punk band The Dead Kennedys.

Nope. There IS no Dead Kennedys without Jello Biafra.

Sheesh. I saw him with green hair on a TV show where he was reunited with Bill Bixby ( it was sort of a "this is your life, Bill Bixby!" show) and Cruz was given the opportunity to play something with his punk band that just really sucked. Just really BITE ME bit the bone. Who'd have thunk he'd later end up with the Dead Kennedys? But thenagain, people did actually buy Michael Jackson records, too, didn't they!

Why are Harvey's cheeks so pink all the time? seriously the only thing that makes ME look like that is Tequila...makes me wonder what's on that black cup he's always carrying around ;)

thats right    

pssh, why would the dead kennedys let him in their band? and i agree with Team Jon above, without Jello Biafra, there's just no DK.

btw, he looks WAY older than 47.

Brandon is the frontman for Dr. Know, which has been in existence since the late 70's/early 80's. He filled in Jello for a couple of years but went back to Dr. Know, where he is currently residing.

If you're not familiar with Dr. Know - school yourself! Hardcore Punk at it's hardest and best!

Hugh Jass, if you're comparing Brandon Cruz to Michael Jackson it makes me want to listen to his music now and I'm not even into his type of music. In other words: bad analogy, but I realize you were just trying to be a smartass. Ass yes, smart no.

Jello Biafra left Dead Kennedys, they hired this guy to sing. Jello sued, saying they are not the Dead Kennedys without him.

I saw ' THE DEAD KENNEDYS ' at the opening of the Moscone Center in San Francisco. It was a free show. A local apsiring (VERY BIG & BUFF caucasion)news anchor man who now dabbles in "Bay Area Back Roads" type hosting was there covering the concert and was ready to fight with the moshers who kept slamming into him. He didn't realize what was going on untill several of ' THE DEAD KENNEDYS ' crew pulled him out and broke it all down for him. From that point on he was cool.

Brandon rocks! He still sings with Dr. Know and yes he did a brief stint with the Dead Kennedy's - hard to fill Jello's shoes but Brandon did an admirable job. Still rocking out at 47 is awesome but I think the age is wrong maybe he's 60 or something. :)
