Doyle Wolfgang Von Frankenstein (real name, Paul Caiafa), entered the music business in 1980 at the tender age of 16 as guitarist of the legendary punk band the Misfits. Working initially as a roadie, he was taught to play guitar by his older brother, bassist Jerry Only and vocalist and songwriter Glen Danzig. After the dissolution of the Danzig lead Misfits in 1983, Doyle & Jerry went on to release one EP as Kryst the Conqueror in 1989 before reforming the Misfits in 1995. Doyle would leave the Misfits fold for good in 2000 and release one album with his band Gorgeous Frankenstein in 2007.
Stripped Down TV recently conducted an interview with 3 DAY CRUSH, a Las Vegas-based rock band featuring former OZZY OSBOURNE/BADLANDS guitarist Jake E. Lee, Sydney Levine on drums and vocals, and Johnny Rocker from THE BUDDY MILES BAND on bass.
On the whole This Wicked Nest is a bit of a frustrating album, in that it’s clear every band member is exceptionally talented, and yet for some reason the music often falls a bit flat. With that being said, there are moments where everything clicks together to result in some very fun thrash, with slight power metal elements, and I suspect long time fans will find a lot more to enjoy
