Jerry Wayne Hussey is an English musician who was born in Bristol, England. He is best known as the lead singer of The Mission, and the guitarist with The Sisters of Mercy. Hussey grew up in Bristol. He was influenced at a young age by Marc Bolan and his band T. Rex, and was thus inspired to become a guitarist. Brought up in the LDS Church, he rebelled against his parents’ wishes that he serve as a missionary and moved to Liverpool in the late 1970s to join the scene around Eric’s Club, a noted nightclub of the time.
