Bassist and vocalist for the horrorpunk band The Misfits, who was briefly a World Championship Wrestling cage match fighter.
He came to The Misfits in 1977 after just a few months of owning his new bass guitar, a present from his father.
In the WCW he was involved in a memorable steel cage match against Dr. Death; he won thanks to distraction provided by his Misfits bandmates.
He was born in Lodi, New Jersey. His brother is bandmate Doyle Wolfgang von Frankenstein.
He was reportedly one of the last people to see Sid Vicious on the night of his heroin overdose in 1979.
