Doyle the Axe Man from Hell!

In the fallen remains of The Misfits rose a project that would find its origins through the vision of Guitarist Doyle Wolfgang Von Frankenstein. Doyle, the hulking Misfits axe man, with his unmistakable presence and notorious guitar sound began to write songs that would soon be recorded and released under the banner of the name Gorgeous Frankenstein, which would later be changed to Doyle! Now that Doyle is on the road alongside Danzig busting out the old tunes of the historic past of The Misfits era, Doyle himself has taken some time to discuss the current touring trek and newest album release Abominator, with a second and third follow-up in the works as well as even further touring to really get that Doyle edge!

1. Introduce yourself, tell me what you do in DOYLE, and how long the band has been together.

Doyle: We've been working together since 2008, just got the record finished and put out an advance copy on April 17th of the Danzig tour, and once I get home we're going to add the lyrics and another song on it and put it out for release, get the ball rolling.

2. Do you ever see the original line-up of The Misfits to ever get back together? Would you ever consider getting back together even if it was for one showcase?

Doyle: I hope so I think that would be awesome and I would like to do it. But it's not up to me, I would say yes and I am trying to talk to the other guys they like to be the boss so... It would be great!

3. Do you ever get tired of answering questions about The Misfits?

Doyle: Naw not at all.

4. Tell me why did you want to make the Doyle's Made In Hell Hot Sauce?

Doyle: A friend of mine wanted to make it, so we had given money to this one guy and then made some samples and we rolled with it and it's a fun thing to have and a good sauce and I like to eat it.

5. What's it like be able to be a part of this Danzig 25th Anniversary Tour? You've had the chance to play alongside Glenn Danzig a few times now, how does this make you feel? Does it bring back the good old days of The Misfits?

Doyle: It's like a circus we have a good time here, very easy going and everyone works hard, got their jobs down,  just fun playing the old songs its fun.

6. Since your time with The Misfits, you have had other alternative projects, Kryst The Conqueror, Gorgeous Frankenstein, and now Doyle, would you ever consider bringing together all those acts onto one tour?

Doyle: No I just want to do the Doyle thing right now, we recorded  two albums at the same time and almost finished with the third one, once I get back home finish that album up with a few more songs, give it a title, and then release it that way we can just play shows not having to worry about recording another record, that's where we're at right now.

7. How would you say that this band has evolved from Gorgeous Frankenstein to Doyle?

Doyle: The songs were written at the same time and my singer left me a message so I called him up and he said let's change the name of the band, I said alright what should we change it to? How about Doyle? I said alright because the problem was this, people would come see us play and opening for Danzig only like 20 people or so would show up afterwards and tell me they didn't know I was in a band and was playing tonight. Or when we did our own tour I lost my shirt, we'd get 30 to 50 people and say again we didn't know you had a band with that band so it was the smartest thing to do really.

8. You've released your new album, Abominator, what can you tell me that hasn't been said about it already?

Doyle: I don't know what has been said I have been on the road but I guess it's been humbling and it's the best thing I have released, everyone who listens to it doesn't hear the same song so that's a good thing.

9. Why did you want to do an advance release of this album only at these Danzig showcases?

Doyle: I wanted to enlighten everyone that I have a band and it's called Doyle. The biggest problem I had was letting everyone know I had a band so everyone coming to the shows before didn't know who I was, so playing these Danzig shows, my name is on the bill and everyone knows who I am so buy the record.

10. What are your expectations for the CD?

Doyle: I want to make a living doing this, not work the regular job, be able to write music all day long, because you see with music people downloading it for free and not buying it, it's like say someone has a motorcycle why sell a bike so why sell our songs? So many people would be surprised to know that a lot of their favorite musicians are working a regular everyday job. Like 99% of them have regular everyday jobs only like 5 people I know of do not have to do that.

11. What plans do you have for the rest of this year?

Doyle: Finish up this tour just doing a lot of shows, trying to talk to Glenn into going to Japan and other places like Europe, East Coast, I know the music part but the business part I hit that brick wall so I need someone to help get the word out about this new record.

12. Anything else you'd like to say or add?

Doyle: Just buy the records, the songs, you want more go buy them don't steal them, it's our product to help feed our kids and families that's about it.
