Fletcher Dragge (born April 22, 1966)[1] is the lead guitar player of the punk rock band Pennywise, which was formed in 1988.

Before he joined Pennywise, he was also in the local punk rock band CON/800. He has also produced records for bands like 98 Mute, 1208, Engrave, and Cigar.

Due to his large frame (6'8", and at least 350 lbs)[2] Fletcher plays a 1 and 1/4 size RG420 guitar, custom built for him by Ibanez.

Fletcher was also a student at Mira Costa High School (where Pennywise lead singer Jim Lindberg attended) from 1981 to 1984.

Fletcher, along with the other members of Pennywise, supported both anti-liberal and anti-conservative views on the government, leading many to call him and the others anarchists.

Fletcher has been one of the most memorable guests on Loveline. His first time on the show in 1995, he became incredibly inebriated and vomited all over the studio, followed by chasing host Dr. Drew around attempting to purposely vomit on him. On June 7, 1999, the next time Pennywise was invited back, proceeded to drink alcohol throughout the entire show, and midway through the show claimed he had a grenade, barricaded the door, and threatened to blow up the studio. Adam Carolla has stated that in Dragge's drunken fit, he told Carolla that "no one is going anywhere until we go to poo-poo city."[3][4]
