Rock Overdose: 2016 was a very good year for the Misfits fans, because of the reunion. Do you think that the reunion is over, like Danzig says, or do you have any plans for continuing it?
Doyle 'Wolfgang von Frankenstein': I would like it to continue. There have been no talks at all as of yet. UNFORTUNATELY...
Rock Overdose: Really, how did this reunion came up?
Doyle 'Wolfgang von Frankenstein': I had meetings with both parties (GLENN DANZIG and JERRY ONLY) basically telling them why we should do it on a few occasions… I guess it really sunk in at one point for them… And they got it…
Rock Overdose: Rolling Stone said that the reunion didn't work the way you wanted that's why you were very solemn. Is that right? What does this mean?
Doyle 'Wolfgang von Frankenstein': Well I have no fucking idea what Rolling Stone wrote because I didn't read it… I had very horrific technical difficulties with my amp at the Denver show… I waited 30 something fucking years for this to happen and the one time my shit don't work had to be that day of course... worst show of my life…
Chicago was way better… Had all the problems fixed…
Rock Overdose: What are your next plans? Do you have any plans for any other releases or will you focus on the promotion of the "As We Die" album?
Doyle 'Wolfgang von Frankenstein': I plan on promoting DOYLE II "AS WE DIE" as much as possible… And writing new material for the next record… Also I am working on a few songs with ALISSA WHITE-GLUZ for her upcoming solo project titled "ALISSA" on Napalm Records due out in 2018…
Rock Overdose: Thank you very much for the interview, the last words are yours.
Doyle 'Wolfgang von Frankenstein': My last words are… Do not illegally download music… You are stealing from musicians… Songs are the product of our business… I always say this and I mean it…" If I owned a motorcycle company and someone came in and stole a motorcycle, would that be a crime?… So is stealing songs"… So go fuck yourself…!!!
The more you steal the less you'll get..
