Holland2 Dexter Holland could be described as a Renaissance man.

He's a rock star: His Orange County punk-pop band, the Offspring, has sold 17 million albums in the U.S. He's also designed and patented software for BlackBerry.

He's an experienced pilot who owns three planes. He has a master's degree in molecular biology from USC.

And he's also an up-and-comer in the quirky world of boutique hot sauces.

His indelicately named Mexican-style sauce, Gringo Bandito, is bottled at the brisk pace of 300 gallons a month and is even being sold through Albertsons supermarkets in Southern California and Las Vegas. Read more about Holland's hot sauce.
