From 1995 The Band's Page

Chad Kroeger (born November 15, 1974) is the lead singer and rhythm guitarist for the rock band Nickelback. Born Chad Robert Turton, he later adopted the surname of his half-brother, Mike Kroeger.

Chad Robert Turton was born in Hanna, Alberta, and some time later joined a cover band. Eventually they got tired of playing other people's songs, and singer/guitarist Chad Kroeger put together a collection of his own songs, borrowed money from his stepfather, and went to Vancouver to record the band in a friend's studio. Based on the results, Kroeger's bassist brother, Mike, along with friend and lead guitarist Ryan Peake all relocated to Vancouver in 1996; that same year, they recorded and released the EP Hesher and full-length Curb independently, then embarked on a series of cross-country tours.[1]

Chad mostly uses Paul Reed Smith (PRS Guitars) although he's been seen with Gibson and Gretsch electric guitars in his early career. He's said to have an Epiphone 7-string electric guitar as well. He's also been seen playing Martin, Yamaha, Gibson and Tacoma acoustic guitars.
