My name is Bill Marcks, a.k.a. “Gringo Bill”. I am a founding member of the band Authority Zero and left the band back in 2008. I started working at a Fortune 500 company after leaving the group, in the bilingual department. I speak Spanish, Portuguese and of course English. I picked up the endearing nickname of “Gringo Bill” there.
The name stuck with me until this day, including throughout my internet radio career from 2011-2014. My show was called “Ska Punk Passport with Gringo Bill”. I played punk, ska and wacky music from all over the world, in a plethora of different languages.
