Name: Noah Bernardo Jr. Marital Status: Married to Terri Children: Two Sons: Noah ("Noopie") and Niah Bio P.O.D.s drummer, Wuv (real name Noah Bernardo Jr), was one of the key figures in the creation of the band. After meeting Marcos, the two other permanent members to join were Wuv's cousin Sonny, and Traa, who played in Wuv's uncle's funk band, so it was very family oriented. His brilliant drumming is a crucial element to P.O.D.'s sound. Wuv came from a born-again christian family. His father had formally been "one of the biggest drug dealers in San Diego", but when he became christian, he had given that all up. He and his wife managed to have their marriage restored. Wuv himself had problems as a teenager, but soon got his life back on track as well. Wuv is often the spokesman for the band in interviews. The name "Wuv" apparently came from when his grandmother called him "love", but with a foreign accent it sounded like "Wuv". According to Wuv, he was originally referred to as "wuvvy", but dropped the y as he thought it sounded childish. QUOTES The origin of his name: "Actually, Wuv's been my name just as long as my real name. My real name's Noah. My grandmother, she's full Italian, and she couldn't speak English that good. Love sounded like Wuv, so there you have it. I've been Wuv just as long as Noah though. So, to me, it's really my real name." On how he came to embrace christianity: "Basically just by seeing my parents, seeing their marriage restored and their lives restored by God. It wasn't something that I got all hyped up on in the church or at youth group or something like that. It was real life. I've seen my dad go from one direction to the next and it was something that impacted my life.Knowing the history of my parents-my mom turned 15 when she had me. She was 14 when she got pregnant-and how tough it was for them, then seeing God do something like that for me was amazing to me. They're 42 and they've been married 28 years. I'll always be grateful and I'll always love Him for that." On christians who disapprove of P.O.D.'s image: "What God's doing with P.O.D. is what He's been doing for 10 years and if they don't get it, they don't get it. We're not for them anyway; we're for the people that don't know Him. We get a lot of criticism from the Christian side because of the way we look and because of the people we play with. You know what, if you don't get it then turn your heads because we're really not for you anyway. We're just doing what God's always put on our hearts to do."

Who I'd like to meet:
Biography on P.O.D While they play around with the infectious grooves of reggae and Latin music as well as the heavy deliverance of hip-hop and rock, San Diego's hard rock four-piece P.O.D. has defined a universal message. They're born-again Christians and their faith takes a central place in their music. Formed in 1992 in the SoCal neighborhood of San Ysidro, Marcos (guitar) and Wuv (drums) relished the music they grew up on. San Ysidro or "Southtown" was a multicultural area, but working class. While Marcos and Wuv were fond of their jazz and reggae roots, they were young punks in the making. Both loved the gnarl of grunge and took to liking Green Day, Pennywise, Bad Brains, and the Vandals. They got a band together, P.O.D. (short for "Payable on Death"), with Wuv's hip-hop MC cousin, Sonny, and aimed for something real. Cleveland native Traa joined in 1993 and P.O.D. were on the map. Throughout the 1990s, P.O.D. played countless shows across the nation and sold more than 40,000 copies of their three homemade EPs -- Brown, Snuff the Punk, and P.O.D. Live -- on their own Rescue Records. Atlantic Records was intrigued by the group's hard-working ethic and passion for music, inking a deal with P.O.D. in 1998. The Warriors EP preceded the major-label debut of P.O.D.'s 1999 release, The Fundamental Elements of Southtown. "Southtown" and "Rock the Party (Off the Hook)" were powerful singles, pushing the album to go platinum. P.O.D. earned top honors for Best Hard Rock or Metal Group, Album of the Year, and Song of the Year for "Rock the Party (Off the Hook)" at the 1999 San Diego Music Awards as well. A year later and with the buzz still going, P.O.D. hit the road with Ozzfest 2000 and shared dates with Crazy Town and Staind for the MTV Campus Invasion tour. They also ventured into films, contributing several songs to various soundtracks. "School of Hard Knocks" proved successful in the Adam Sandler comedy Little Nicky in 2001, whereas additional tracks featured in the Al Pacino sports thriller Any Given Sunday and Ready to Rumble maintained P.O.D.'s growing status. A second album for Atlantic, Satellite, was recorded with Howard Benson in spring 2001. Benson captured the magic once again, for P.O.D.'s stature exploded later that year, hot on the heels of the spiritual chaos of debut single "Alive." "Youth of the Nation" scored again for P.O.D., as its positive mix of hip-hop, reggae, and hardcore punk defined a different kind of rock next to the likes of Kid Rock, Limp Bizkit, and Korn. Controversy hit the P.O.D. camp in 2003 when founding guitarist Marcos left the band. However, P.O.D. were soon back on track, tapping ex-Living Sacrifice guitarist Jason Truby as a replacement and recording the Satellite follow-up Payable on Death. Heavy touring followed, and stretched all the way into late 2004. Early the next year, P.O.D. reconvened in the studio, this time with Glen Ballard behind the board, and the Top Ten hit Testify appeared in early 2006. ~ MacKenzie Wilson, All Music Guide
