Alex was born in Essex, England but moved to Maryland when he was six, where he met Jack who talked him into starting a band. Alex wasn't going to stay but Jack's Mother made nice food, so he stayed.
Alex has a long term girlfriend, who he has been in a relationship with since high school, named Lisa Ruocco. Alex proposed to Lisa in 2015.

This next song goes out to anybody who's ever been told that the way that they think or the way that they feel is the wrong way to think or the wrong way to feel. Goes out to anybody who's ever been pushed down, held back, walked on... Anybody who doesn't feel comfortable in their own skin, anybody...everybody - It goes out to everybody. It goes out to all of you! And the reason it goes out to all of you is because every single one of you is fucking beautiful. I've noticed that there's a lot of people in the world trying to tell other people that they're not beautiful. And I don't stand for that, I think that's bullshit. Each and every single one of you are gorgeous, believe in yourselves. This song goes out to all of you. It's called 'Therapy'.
Never underestimate a girl's love for her favorite band. Never think even for a minute, that she won't defend them to her death. Because it's not just the music that makes that band her favorite. It's the guys, the gals. It's the fans. People whom of which she has interacted with thanks to the band. That band might of saved her life, or just made her smile everyday. That band has never broke her heart and has yet to leave her. No wonder she finds such joy in her music.
Life's greatest tragedy is not that it will someday end, but that most only live to follow directions and sometimes we end up totally lost.
