Born on 25th August 1964, Eerie grew up in Lodi, NJ and graduated from Lodi High School in 1982 with Steve Zing and Doyle of The Misfits. Before joining Samhain, Eerie played drums for the Lodi band Rosemary's Babies. He also was a roadie and photographer for The Misfits. Originally in Samhain as the drummer, Eerie later switched to bass to take advantage of his potential as a stage presence, replacing Al Pike. When the band changed its name to Danzig, Eerie remained, playing on the first 4 Danzig albums, and developing a close relationship with the band's fans. After Eerie and John Christ left the band in July 1995, he later formed Bighouse, and recorded solo albums, one with Mike Morance.
