Then: In 1995, the bald musical brainiac launched his MTV career hosting "120 Minutes." He soon added a slew of additional shows to his resume, including "MattRock," "Pinfield Suite," "Pinfield Presents," "Rocks Off," "Say What?," "MTV Live," and more than 100 MTV specials.
Now: After a fruitful career within the music industry that included stints as a major label A&R rep, radio DJ and TV host, Pinfield (shown here attending the 2012 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony) briefly returned to "120 Minutes," which was revived on MTV2 from 2011-2013. —XFINITY Entertainment Staff (Photo: MTV, Mike Coppola/Getty Images)
