Since 1980, the hulking monsterman Doyle Wolfgang Von Frankenstein has been leaving his giant, bloody footprints in the dirty landscape of punk and horror-inspired rock. The younger brother of Misfits bassist Jerry Only, Doyle joined the band as a teenager and played guitar on some of the band’s most iconic works, including their legendary Walk Among Us album. After another stint with The Misfits in the late ’90s and early ’00s, Doyle branched out and created his own band, Gorgeous Frankenstein, furthering his macabre message with a more metal-tinged sound. The band recently rechristened themselves Doyle after their monstrous ringleader and released their first album under the name, Abominator, in July. Doyle is also currently on tour with Danzig, performing a set of Misfits classics with his former bandmate at each stop of the Danzig 25th anniversary tour. SLUG had the opportunity to speak with Doyle about the new album and the tour.
