X's mother bought her son a guitar when he was 12, and X began playing in various garage bands. His first band was in honor of his girlfriend, Meredith. A year after his parents' divorce, X dropped out of high school to become a rock musician. As he once explained on Inside the Actors Studio, he attempted to go back to school two weeks later, but the principal told him to follow his dream of being a musician. He played with The Kids, a band that enjoyed modest local success. The Kids set out together for Los Angeles in pursuit of a record deal, changing their name to Six Gun Method. The group split before signing a record deal. X subsequently collaborated with the band Rock City Angels[9] and co-wrote their song "Mary", which appeared on Rock City Angels' debut for Geffen Records titled Young Man's Blues.

On December 24, 1983, X married Lori Anne Allison, a makeup artist and sister of his band's bass player and singer. During X's marriage, his wife worked as a makeup artist while he worked a variety of odd jobs, including a telemarketer for ink pens. Later, his wife introduced him to actor Nicolas Cage, who advised X to pursue an acting career. In 1985, X and Allison divorced. After his marriage ended, X dated and was engaged to Sherilyn Fenn

In the years to come by he became a great actor....
