Cryptocurrency pioneers, Olympic rowers, Mark Zuckerberg’s punching bags … Now the Winklevoss twins are adding another title to their impressive and varied resumes: rock stars.
We hear that the brothers, Tyler and Cameron — best known as the Harvard grads who sued Mark Zuckerberg for allegedly stealing their idea for Facebook — have started a band with their head of security and some pals.
“Tyler sings, Cameron plays guitar,” says the source who tells us the twins have started performing for friends.
We hear the six-member group played to a dozen guests at Cameron’s NoHo loft this week, which has been outfitted with a professional stage and lighting.
Didn’t make the guest list? No worries. The source tells us the the mini show was just a dress rehearsal for next week, when the 6’5″ pair — who were played by Armie Hammer in the 2010 movie “Social Network” — have invited 200 people over to see them jam.
While we haven’t uncovered their band name, Page Six is only here to help and would be happy to make some suggestions: New Kids on the Blockchain, The Coxless Pair (as a nod to their rowing career), the Self-Righteous Brothers, Free WiVi, Plaintiff White Tees, the Coiner Sisters, the Rolling Clones, Cyndi Lawsuit, or perhaps, in homage to Hammer, the Fine Young Cannibals.
When they’re not rocking out, the brothers run Winklevoss Capital and the cyrptocurrency exchange Gemini. They reached a settlement in 2008 in their disagreement with Zuckerberg, getting $45 million in shares in the company and $20 million in cash.
In 2018, they appeared in the hallowed annals of Page Six for suing a porn mag, alleging the owner used their cash to fund a sleek lifestyle. The owner denied the mismanagement allegations and made counterclaims.
