He was once asked to join the Misfits, but declined, choosing to remain with Rosemary's Babies. Although never an official Misfits member, in 1986 Eerie Von recorded bass on several tracks appearing on the bands Collection II compilation album. After the Misfits broke up, Eerie Von and Glenn Danzig discussed forming a new band and began rehearsing together. This would lead to Eerie Von becoming the original drummer for Danzig's band Samhain, before quickly switching to bass guitar after being taught to play the instrument by Glenn Danzig. He remained with Samhain from 1983 to 1987.
They then changed their name to Danzig, which he played with from 1987 to July 1995. Eerie Von's association with the Misfits led to him providing the liner notes to the Misfits box set in 1996. He currently works as a solo performer and has had much underground success with his "Fiend Art", which showcases his disturbing themes on canvas. Misery Obscura, a book compiling photographs taken by Eerie Von throughout his career was released in 2009. In January 2010, Eerie Von performed an acoustic set at Generation Records in New York City with Lyle Preslar and Mike D'Antonio in support of Misery Obscura.
