Lee James Gaze (born 21 May 1975 in Pontypridd, Wales) is a Welsh musician. He is the lead guitarist, and also one of the founding members, of the Welsh/American rock band No Devotion and previously a member of the Welsh rock band Lostprophets.

Career[edit]

Gaze was born in Pontypridd, Wales. He grew up on a council estate, and was childhood friends with future bandmate Mike Lewis. Gaze did not do well at school: as he told Kerrang! in 2006, "They were the kids that did better in school and, before I discovered music, I was a total delinquent".[1]

Gaze formed his first band, Aftermath, in 1996. The following year, he along with Ian Watkins, Jamie Oliver, Mike Lewis, Stuart Rihcardson and Mike Chiplin founded the band Lostprophets, for whom he was the lead guitarist. The band disbanded in October 2013.[2] The remaining members later formed a new band, No Devotion, with Geoff Rickly as lead singer.[3]
