Brian Molko was born to Scottish and American parents. His father was originally French and Italian and his parents met in America. He has a brother that is 10 years older then him. Brian's earliest childhood memory is from when he was 2 years old, he remembers sitting in his cot in their house in Lebanon watching their maid sweep the floor.
Brian's father was an international banker so for the early years of his life he was constantly moving from Liberia to Lebanon then finally settling in Luxembourg, where he met band mate Stefan. However the two never spoke to each other as Stefan was a jock and Brian was in the drama club. Brian has been wearing make-up since he was 12 and he was picked on at school because of it.
At 17, Brian moved to London to study drama at Goldsmiths College in New Cross Southeast London.
He has been playing guitar since he was 16 when he bought a Fender Jaguar that he named, "B*tch". He taught himself how to play along to his records. It wasn't long until he started writing his own material, and became lead vocalist for Alternative-Rock band, Placebo.
