- Michael Bishop (bassist)
Michael Bishop is an American musician, and Bishop attended Thomas Dale high school. Most notably, he was the bass guitarist for the American heavy metal band GWAR. As a member of GWAR, he was the first to play the role of "Beefcake the Mighty") (during his stint, however, he would spell it "Beefkake"). In addition to GWAR, Bishop played bass and sang lead vocals for Kepone. Bishop's first band was the Hopewell, VA-based hardcore outfit The Guilty.
The name of Beefcake was taken from Bishop's nickname during his punk years.
He is currently a teacher of music history at the University of Virginia, and is in the final year of his Ph.D. in that subject.
