    Like Bobby 'Boris' Pickett, he became a one-hit wonder with a Halloween-themed novelty song.
    He tried to steal Pickett's thunder by recording a cover of 'The Monster Mash.'
    'Dinner with Drac' was banned in England for being too gory.
    Growing up, his parents would not let him watch horror movies.
    He became a progressive rock DJ and introduced the Grateful Dead at the Fillmore East (he can be heard on their album 'Dick's Picks, Vol. 4').
