John Francis Spence (3 February 1969–21 December 1987), always saying he wanted to be in a band, was a founding member of the then 2 Tone-Ska band No Doubt, along with Eric Stefani who had his younger sister Gwen Stefani sing backing vocals. John, who came up with the band's name from his favorite expression, took on the role as the lead vocalist, with the Madness-inspired Eric behind the keyboard. John was No Doubt's then energetic frontman, doing backflips and wild screams on the stage. Their performances early became popular on the local scene for being lively and entertaining.
