Bands from my area (Murrieta, CA):
Well... New Found Glory guys live 5 minutes away from me, Finch went to my high school's (Murrieta Valley) rival school Temecula Valley. Lindsey Davenport went to my high school... a while before me though. I also grew up in San Diego... but there's so many people that have gone on to do famous things from that city. But in Murrieta (an hour north of S.D.) there were a few people.
