Doyle Frankenstein Guitar was born Paul Caiafa on September 15, 1964 in Lodi, New Jersey. He is most well-known as the guitarist of the horror punk band The Misfits, which he joined in October 1980, at the age of 16.
Doyle is considered by many in the horror punk scene as a legendary guitarist, setting the standard for future acts that attempt to emulate his aggressive playing style, skull cranking, and hulking stage presence.
In 1987, four years after the Misfits broke up, Doyle and Jerry formed the metal band Kryst The Conqueror. However, they never had a vocalist and only played a few shows, although they did record one album which was only released in its entirety on cassette.
After several years of legal negotiations with The Misfits, Doyle helped to reform The Misfits in 1995. Doyle contributed greatly to two full length albums of new material.
Doyle is married to former pro wrestler Stephanie Bellars, aka Gorgeous George. They have a beautiful daughter named Boriss together.
Doyle began writing material that would become Gorgeous Frankenstein not long after he left the Misfits. After moving out west with his family the process accelerated once work began with former band mate and friend Glenn Danzig.
Doyle continues to crank skulls and crush cities with the finesse of Kong.
