................El Retorno De Doyle en Gorgeus Frankenstein


In the fallen remains of the Resurrected Misfits rose a project that would find its origins through the vision of Guitarist Doyle Wolfgang Von Frankenstein. Doyle, the hulking Misfits axeman, with his unmistakable presence and notorious guitar sound began to write songs that would most recently become recorded and released under the banner of the name Gorgeous Frankenstein. The name was decided upon as a way to combine both Doyle and wife Stephanie Bellars (Gorgeous George of WC...wrestling fame) names into one conceptual theme. Doyle originally wrote the first few songs of the Gorgeous Frankenstein project with for wife George to dance to. Reuniting after many years with his mentor Glenn Danzig upon a chance occurance initiated by George, fate dealt a wonderful hand. A rekindled friendship now between them, Doyle brought Glenn’s attention to his new project. Danzig soon suggested he produce and release the songs on his label Evillive. Glenn has played a major role in the development of the band in the sense that he has overseen and guided the efforts from the very beginning. After having his foundations set, Doyle then set out to assemble the band. Argyle Goolsby of Blitzkid fame was suggested to Doyle though friend Dr. Chud after Goolsby completed a tour as touring bassist for Dr. Chuds’ band the X Ward. Upon Chud’s suggestion Goolsby sent his audition tape to Doyle and not long after that received the call to join the band. Time elapsed as a drummer and vocalist was sought. Auditions were held and in August of 2007 Doyle called Goolsby who was at the time on tour in Europe with Blitzkid informing him that a singer had been found but the drummer position hadn’t been so fortunate yet. Landon Blood had recently been recruited to sing on the upcoming record and front the band live. Landon a resident of Las Vegas, NV. made numerous trips to CA. to visit with Doyle and Glenn most of that time spent in the studio to lay down vocal tracks for the album. During this time a drummer was still being sought out and Argyle Goolsby continued to tour with his band Blitzkid until his services and presence was needed out west. Glenn would be shooting a video for the band in a weeks time from that phone call given to Goolsby, and for the time a fill in drummer was needed at least for the video shoot. Goolsby suggested that his drummer Jesco fly out to California with him to meet up and appear in the video. This plan went through and a week later both Goolsby and Jesco were in California for the video shoot. After shooting the video Goolsby with Jesco along visited Doyle and George for some time and they both got to know Jesco. Before the two returned home Jesco was asked to join Gorgeous Frankenstein. Goolsby and Jesco were informed while they were there that Glenn had just arranged for a 3 week tour of America that upcoming October and that Gorgeous Frankenstein were going to be the opening band.............(Incompleto)......leer mas en:
