Oddity
    (circa 1951- )
    Resided in Santa Monica, California and Evanston, Illinois
    Gained notoriety as Peter Criss' impostor
    Center character of a tabloid story that the former KISS drummer hit skid row after falling on hard times
    Appeared in Star magazine as the phony Peter Criss
    Appeared as himself in People Magazine and on 'Donahue'
    He was a homeless alcoholic vagrant living in the Santa Monica pier when Star Magazine reported him as Peter Criss hitting rock bottom.
    The false story came out as the real Criss was preparing for his mother's funeral.
    Tom Arnold came out to Santa Monica to look for him (when he believed he was the former KISS drummer) and help him out.
    For years before Star published the story, he used Criss' name as he was getting treatment at hospitals.
    Star paid him $500 for his story.
    He met the real Peter Criss on 'Donahue,' who acknowledged him in a casual but friendly manner.
    Criss expressed no anger toward him, but successfully sued Star magazine.
    His fake story had many people believing it was true despite its being published in a tabloid.
    He expressed genuine appreciation for everyone (including Arnold) who came to his aid and continued to help him even though the truth came out.
    He was the central character in the scandal ranked #92 in VH1's Most Shocking Moments in Rock & Roll.
