28 years old Joshua William "Josh" Dun is an American musician. He is best known as the drummer for the musical duo Twenty One Pilots. Dun was born in Columbus, Ohio, and grew up with two sisters, Ashley and Abigail, and a brother, Jordan. He taught himself how to play drums when he was young. He claims he did this by going to a local instrument shop and sitting at the electronic drum kit and put on some music on his CD walkman and put on headphones, he then put the electronic drum headphones over the walkman ones and sync them up the best he could. According to Dun, he was not really allowed to listen to music as a child but would sneak down to the music store once a week and ask for suggestions from the people there. "I'd hide albums like Green Day's Dookie under my bed," Dun says. "Sometimes they'd find them and get real mad. They'd find a Christian alternative, like Relient K, and make me listen to that." Dun worked at the Guitar Center for three years, also working with Twenty One Pilots' former drummer Chris Salih.
