Hello Everyone,

First let me start off by saying that I myself and many other people in the industry have been onto this person “Jeff Danzig” and the hundreds of forgeries he’s put out into the market. This guy is pretending to be Glenn Danzig’s son and is using the Danzig name in order to help give him credibility. The only problem is that Glenn Danzig has no son!!!! He has publically stated such!!  His real name isn’t even Danzig, It’s Glenn Anzalone.  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Glenn_Danzig)

So who is this Jeff Danzig?? Autograph collectors know of him, but their impression has been that he is just using the Danzig name to profit. It has also been shown that many bad items are coming from this source. Rocknroll_hell was shown as clear of proof as you will ever see when you are dealing with autographs that these items weren’t good. [continued below]....

..... You will see a wealth of information online proving beyond a shadow of a doubt these items were fake. Although the Kiss items were better than average forgeries and could easily fool a collector. And some even had a D. Max cert. who we all know has a very bad reputation in the community for authenticating.  

Yes, he appears to be pretty skilled at Kiss signatures but his van halen, gnr, metallica and others are just really disgusting. Really Really vile! Please step back and take a look at what is going on here..

It is very obvious what he’s been up to and the drastic measures he’ll attempt to defend his forgeries. It seems as good 'ol Jeff at one time or another did have authentic items. He was probably making some extra money with those items until he ran out of them. He then simply started forging more.. which is probably why his Kiss forgeries are pretty good (compared to the other bands he is trying to pull off)

I am pretty sure they were all signed in the same gold pen as well! This guy doesn’t appear to be the sharpest tool in the shed. It’s about time someone puts an end to this imposter and protects all the innocent people that actually want to buy authentic merchandise. Jeff.. or whatever your name is.. STOP taking innocent people’s money. THE JIG IS UP!

Rocknroll_hell Ebay Jeff Danzig & Partners Still Scamming Music Collectors!

AUTHOR: - (USA)

Jeff Danzig is at it again! Still peddling his fake music memorabilia through his ebay store: http://stores.ebay.com/rocknroll-hell

Since his autograph scam got shut down as the industry experts came out in droves and proved they were forgeries, he has now moved on to selling other fake items including RIAA Awards and photos which he claims are original or unpublished, which is not true. A simple image search of the photos he claims are original will easily reveal the truth that they are not. He tries to boost his credibility and feedback on his ebay store by selling many cheaper items like t-shirts, hats and old 8 tracks. Then attempts to unload the expensive "fake merchandise" to unsuspecting customers that are fooled into thinking they are legit.

Look how easy it is to have a fake RIAA award created:

http://www.platinum-gold-record-disc.com/

http://jewelboxplatinum.com/about/

http://www.customrecordawards.com/PlatinumRecord.html

Since it is more difficult to have an RIAA award certified, he continues to get away with it. As the other commentor says, his RIAA award forgeries mostly come in black frames and lack the RIAA official halogram. RIAA awards never came in black frames and it's a clear tell they are obviously fake.

The poster below who is writing all the rebuttals in favor of Jeff Danzig, is his business partner John Cernich, formerly ebay handle “kissdestroyer1966”  He was kicked off ebay for selling fake autographs bought from Jeff Danzig. It's not apparently clear if John was in on the scam, or he himself was just another victim of buying fake merchandise from Jeff. He obviously is very distressed as I'm sure he got duped into buying thousands of dollars of merchandise from a person he thought had genuine stuff and desperately wanted to recoup his investment. He claims in his videos he was "selling online for fun" but any rational person can see he has a financial incentive here. So much so that he traveled around across the country to Kiss meet and greets to get a couple real autographs on you tube so that he could claim the rest of the stuff him and Jeff Danzig were selling was real.

According to John, Jeff's back story on how he got the autographs was that he started collecting them at a very young age while being allowed access back stage at concerts.  Unfortunately, Glenn Danzig has repeatedly denied the fact that he has a son so how would it make sense that a kid that no one even heard of who is claiming to be Danzig's son would have so many connections and access to back stage music events? Even if it's true that this Jeff Danzig guy is Glenn's son, the relationship with his father appears so strained and non existent it is doubtful he would be doing him any favors.

The second false back story is that Jeff Danzig purchased all his Kiss memorabilia from the infamous and famous Kiss fan Vinny Gonzales. Unfortunately, there is not one shred of evidence that this is true. Please post one picture of Jeff Danzig and Vinny Gonzales together that isn't photo shopped! It seems very convenient to claim you got all your material from the one source people accept has real merchandise. And where did all this supposed money you spent buying these autographs from Vinny Gonzales come from? From all the fake autographs you've sold in the past, looks like you bought Vinny's entire collection! lol

And yes, from researching it, most of the forged autographs you sold were signed in the same pen.. hmm makes one wonder.

Now that it appears you've ditched selling the fake autographs and moved onto other fake merchandise, I'd love to hear what new lie you claim your source is for getting all the RIAA awards and unpublished photos? Do you have a very close relationship with multiple record label execs and industry artists that haven't heard of you? Or will you claim you got all that stuff from Vinny too?

Music memorabilia collectors: Please help stop Jeff Danzig from selling anything else on his Ebay Store:

http://stores.ebay.com/rocknroll-hell

And help save many other people from throwing their money away to this scam artist. To make a living by ripping people off isn't right. Please go to his store and report his RIAA award listings as fake to Ebay. Flag them, call it in.. whatever you have to do so that this person is stopped. I have all the respect in the world for anyone who makes an honest living selling real merchandise to the public but in this case, it is clearly cut and dry that this dishonest person cannot be allowed to continue his scheme.

Also Got Scammed by Jeff Danzig on his Ebay Store RocknRoll_hell - Fake RIAA Award!

AUTHOR: - (USA)

After reading all these negative reports about this seller, I wish I would have known before pruchasing anything from him via his ebay store RocknRoll_Hell.  Apparently Jeff Danzig (or whoever he really is) has moved on from selling fake autographs to selling other fake music memorabilia. I bought an RIAA award from him online, which was proven to be a complete fake/forgery. I took it to a professional who confirmed it.

Official RIAA awards have an RIAA logo or an RIAA hologram in them. The one I bought from him did not have this. What the expert I brought it to told me was that he sees what is known among collectors as the RIAA "strip plate" awards on ebay all the time in black frames. These are not real. They were never made in black frames. If you look at Jeff Danzig's Ebay store, almost all of the RIAA awards he is passing off as real all have black frames and no official logo or hologram. And he is charging extremely high prices for them.

The re-sale value on these is going to be nearly nothing and a knowledgable collector woundn't take one for free because they are not really even record awards. Unfortunately, the time limit to file a dispute has passed. All I can do at this point is warn other potential buyers to stay away from this particular seller and his Ebay store. I am confident that the majority of what this guy sells is not authentic. I am remaining annonymous as this seller knows my personal information.

Same Name Different Person Problems

AUTHOR: Jeff Danzig - (USA)

Recently I've been receving a lot of odd emails, phone calls and the likes complaining about nafarious activities on my part. This AM showing a co-worker how great the internet is for finding information out about someone (using my own name as an example) I stumbled upon RipOff Reports.

Ouch! It ain't me I swear! I buy off eBay and but don't sell anything online. I don't think it's fair that my name is being used by this person who apparently is generating quite a bit of hate mail and calls.

Perhaps there's a way to resolve at least the posting so, individuals with similiar names aren't being "harassed" or "bullied" online. The issue is this isn't true identity theft, but it does truly suck having the exact same name as this person.

If those posting would be so kind, or perhaps RipOff Reports can accomodate this post somehow. I've used RipOff Reports in the past for similar outrages against me from crappy, rotten horrible people and companies. Not sure it's ever yielded any results but certainly made me feel better postings something in hopes of people finding dirt on one person who stole 2800.00 from me under false pretense of payment for work I performed and another for never paying me under similar conditions.

The problem in this whole online purchasing world, as we know, he won't use Jeff Danzig next time, but maybe Paul W. Smith or some other familiar name. With that name and a bitcoin account people can steal from unsuspecting buyers forever with no recourse what-so-ever.

Best of luck and THANK "you" for reading!

Authenticated Items from Jeff Danzig Collection of Autographs

AUTHOR: John - (USA)

Autograph Seekers and Music Memorabilia Lovers,

First, let's get back to the facts allowing you to make an educated determination on the false accusations made by the author of this very weak report. While the accuser wants to dabble in "garbage" from the Internet from a very suspect Internet Site, Autograph Magazine Live (which can be posted by anyone at anytime "friend or foe", with no repercussions for false or misleading information unless a civil suit is pursued for slander which is always a potential including one against the author of this complaint), we offer just facts that can be clearly observed with photos or video, not garbage obtained from unreliable, hateful source on the Internet.

First, again, we offer the videos from the KISS Members that not only authenticate many of the items from Jeff but also acknowledge that they knew him when he was a kid (12 years old) and used to get him into the Alice Cooper and KISS shows backstage in the early 90's. For those that think this is bogus, please confront Gene Simmons, Paul Stanley, Bruce Kulick, Eric Singer for they are the ones that authenticated not us. I would hardly think that they would authenticate if not correct or accurate. Especially Gene Simmons who is the smartest of the KISS members and doesn't drink or do drugs. He has also has the best business acumen and wouldn't allow anyone to make money on the KISS name that was undeserved. To claim all these claims these videos are false is just ignorant and self serving to discredit Jeff Danzig and his collection. Again we offer the links to the videos which speak for themselves:

Gene Simmons authenticates KISS Love Gun LP and Return of KISS Poster both from Jeff Danzig:

youtube.com/watch?v=ipP6HHsZTuA

Paul Stanley authenticates 2 KISS 8x10's from Jeff Danzig:

youtube.com/watch?v=bGs0ESa8Vhg

Peter Criss acknowledges signing "tons" of autographs for Vinny Gonzales (where Jeff Danzig got many of his KISS autographed and non autographed items):

youtube.com/watch?v=dVupAvDL5KU

Bruce Kulick authenticates several autographed KISS items from Jeff Danzig (notice the he volunteered the information with prompts):

youtube.com/watch?v=NpQFKdZxcP8

Eric Singer acknowledges he knew Jeff Danzig as a kid (12 years old) and used to get him into Alice Cooper and KISS shows in the 90's:

youtube.com/watch?v=7oYOE2w7hGE

 

Second, we offer many autographed items provided by Jeff Danzig that were authenticated by PSA/DNA, JSA, and or GA (also known as GAI). These are just a few examples of items that have been provided by Jeff from his fantastic collection of music autographs. These will be attached for you to view. You can always go to their data bases and verify the serial numbers are in fact correct. This is factual and not junk you read on Autograph Magazine Live:

Your Foundation, Steve Cykrin, Roger Epperson, PSA/DNA what a Joke!

Music Memorabilia Lovers,

Accuser is lacking in credentials and foundation. Only provides garbage from Autograph Magazine Live and hearsay from the Internet. Lets address the credentials from his/her sources...

Nice job on your complaint, NOT! It holds little to no value in the forum we consider to be the most important, the TRUTH!

Please do your homework based on facts and not superficial information spread on the greatest pool of misinformation we currently know of, the Internet. A pool of garbage.

Thanks for spewing your lack of true knowledge! Let the facts speak for themselves. Any objective person will conclude that Jeff is the real deal and you are nothing more than a person that wants to spread hate and discontent for reasons not understood. Thanks for nothing!

ALERT! Rocknroll_hell Ebay is a Fraud! "Jeff Danzig" uses this on Ebay to Rip Innocent Music Collectors Off! Beware

AUTHOR: - ()

To All Music Fans & Memorabilia Collectors,

It is very obvious who is making all the response rebuttals here, and it appears to be one of Jeff Danzig's friends, business partners or accomplices..(Formerly Ebay handle "Kissdestroyer1966" as well as many other Ebay handles that have also been banned forever) He probably has a new one created by now to continue to try and peddle his schemes with Jeff Danzig/Rocknroll_hell on Ebay. Please refer to the links below. Apparently, there have been other rip off reports regarding Jeff Danzig and his partners scamming other music memorabilia collectors online.

http://www.ripoffreport.com/r/World-Of-Autographs-Rocknrollhell-Wereafunseller-Thebeatles123/Union-New-Jersey/World-Of-Autographs-Rocknroll-Rocknrollhell-Wereafunseller-Thebeatles123-has-ripped-of-460971

Please also refer to this link - where this same business partner of Jeff's talks endlessly as he is doing on here to defend their Scam. Resorting to saying anything and everything to try and keep their scheme/scam alive!

http://live.autographmagazine.com/forum/topics/kissdestroyer1966-is-at-it-again

http://live.autographmagazine.com/forum/topics/van-halen-opinions-please#comments

Roger Epperson, the top and most respected music autograph authenticator in the business (as well as COUNTLESS other professional authenticators) have all gone on record stating that the items posted by Jeff Danzig aka Rocknroll_hell and his associates on Ebay have been some of the worst forgeries they have ever seen!

Roger Epperson's credentials can be seen here:  rogerepperson.com/credentials.html

Whoever is writing these responses should be ashamed of themselves! You talk about wanting proof or facts but the facts are clear. There is zero proof Glenn Danzig ever had any children and he has gone on record denying it repeatedly. Who are you to say that Glenn is wrong or lying? Do you know Glenn Danzig personally?.. doubtful. Are you an expert authenticator yourself that can verify what Jeff Danzig/Rocknroll_hell is selling online is real?... again NO. Where are your credentials? Didn't see any. You don't even sign your name at the end of your responses which is typical of a scammer trying to hide their identity.

You posted your youtube videos of you stalking kiss members at meet and greets begging them to say what you wanted on camera while waiting in line for hours to get one "REAL" autograph. Then you try and suggest the rest of the garbabe merchandise you or Jeff Danzig try to peddle is authentic. You don't even have one single shred of proof that you or Jeff ever even met Vinny Gonzalez, let alone purchased any of his merchandise! It's really funny that you try and think of the one person who actually has authentic merchandise, then just claim Jeff Danzig bought his stuff from that guy. Please stop trying to rip people off with that same unsubstantiated lie!

If every authenticator in the business claims what this Jeff Danzig character sells is completely fake, who are you to argue or disagree with them? The truth is whether Glenn Danzig knows or doesn't know of this imposter is irrelevant. Glenn doesn't care. It's not like it's illegal to change your name and sell merchandise online. It is illegal however to sell fake music memorabilia online which is exactly why these rip off reports are created and why most of your music merchandise has been blacklisted. To warn the public not to buy from a known scammer.

The truth is both you and this Jeff Danzig "Rocknroll_hell" guy are liars, scammers and con artists. Your music merchandise & memorabilia is more fake than Pam Andersons () (), Why you choose to continue to deny the truth that your business partner is a fraud is beyond comprehension.

Glenn Danzig's "silence" speaks VOLUMES!

AUTHOR: Peter - ()

Glenn Danzig’s “Silence” speaks Volumes! 

Music Fans, 

It is well known in the music industry, that Glenn Danzig denies he has a son. Why he denies this is not clearly understood. Perhaps he is afraid there might be potential financial implications, perhaps he is embarrassed, perhaps he is worried it would hurt his image, or perhaps there is some other reason(s) only he understands. Only Glenn can answer that question. 

However, what is not readily known, is Jeff Danzig is fully aware of Glenn’s denial and has never disputed or implied differently. Why everyone thinks this is his big “SECRET” is sadly mistaken. As much as Jeff would like Glenn to own up to the reality of the situation, Glenn chooses not to. No major issue for Jeff as he has accepted this for decades without recourse and doesn’t dwell on it. Both parties just go about their business. 

One would think that that would be then end of it but it’s not. Seems there are a lot of persons that have really no business in the matter continuing to pursue some form of answer to the puzzle that Jeff and Glenn have woven. These tactics include lying, cheating, harassment and deformation just to name a few. 

Interestingly the biggest slander and hurt seems to come from the Misfit camp and uneducated Music Memorabilia Authenticators. Their false claims of fraudulent autographs, fake music memorabilia, as well as attacking his character and sexuality are slanderous in nature and factually incorrect without a single fact to justify their positions. 

While the Music Authenticators have used this claim to back their incorrect theory that Jeff is purposefully forging music autographs (as they have blacklisted his collection for years out of spite when he wouldn’t sell exclusively to them), it is not clear why the Misfit clan have attacked Jeff so feverishly. Why do they care so much about someone that they claim is so insignificant? They honestly know nothing about him, what he stands for, nor have they ever tried to seek the truth. 

So let’s analyze this a little closer: 

If Jeff was this calculated imposter taking on the Danzig name to provide credibility to his Music Collection, why chose Glenn Danzig? Not to seem mean, but Glenn hardly harnessed the popularity to assist a seemingly “nobody kid” to gain recognition and acceptance in a dead Rock Music Industry back in the early 90’s when grunge was becoming the rage on the airwaves. In fact, most people didn’t know who Glenn Danzig or the Misfits were. Let’s face it, they had a moderate “cult” following in the NY/NJ area but are better known for their tee-shirts than any musical accomplishments. 

Glenn Danzig knows of Jeff (and has known of him), for over 25 years. (This has been factually stated on public documents as well as phone records leading back to the 90’s.) Glenn is also very familiar with Jeff’s popular eBay store (rocknroll_hell), and how much autographed memorabilia he has sold on the internet and on the side to friends. Additionally, he is frequently questioned as to the existence of Jeff and his relationship to him by which he so eloquently replies: “I don’t want to talk about that guy”. 

So, if Jeff is an imposter, taking on the Danzig name to sell off a fraudulent music collection (as the Misfit clan and music authenticators claim for different reasons), why wouldn’t Glenn have him arrested and prosecuted? It is safe to say that any reasonable person of sound mind and judgment in Glenn’s shoes would have HAMMERED Jeff DECADES ago. I know if I was Glenn and what these people theorized was true, I would have had this stopped this the moment Jeff started using my name in vein. I mean come on, this has been going on for several decades and there has been ABSOLUTELY NO LEGAL ACTION (or any other action) taken by Glenn against Jeff to date. 

Begs the question, why not? I know one thing, if there was a person claiming to be my son seemingly using my name to sell music memorabilia, there would be arrests, charges and potential law suits faster than you could blink an eye. I wouldn’t stand for this and neither would Glenn. He has worked too hard to have someone do this without recourse unless of course, Jeff is his son. Does Glenn’s silence over decades point us in the right direction? Sure seems that way. 

Anyway, this is between Jeff and Glenn. Everyone else should just stay out of it and not disseminate non substantiated false claims out of spite, jealousy, insecurities, or what other potential motivations might exist. It is meaningless. The music memorabilia speaks for itself regardless of where Jeff came from.

Again, stick to the facts such as videos and information that can be backed up. Not silly accusations that come from an author (this accuser) that got all his accusations from a Website (Autograph Magazine Live) that has more shady characters making unsubstantiated claims and has lost more members than it has gained. They have no credentials, speak strictly opinion and have ABSOLUTELY no factual data. Their claims are superficial and any objective honest person can see right throw the smoke they blow.

Thanks for your time.

RocknRoll_Hell on Ebay aka "Jeff Danzig" and Kissdestroyer1966 are Scamming Innocent People With Fake Merchandise & Memorabilia!

AUTHOR: R. - ()

This comment is complete and utter rambling by a desperate man doing what he can at ANY cost to convince people Jeff Danzig’s forged merchandise and memorabilia is authentic. It is pretty obvious that this is either the imposter Jeff Danzig himself writing or the only other person who sticks up for his forgeries, his business partner “kissdestroyer1966” who has already been banned on Ebay multiple times.  How does this commenter even know Jeff Danzig’s entire fake life story? Why did you not sign your name at the end of your long and inconsequential post? And for everyone’s info, “kissdestroyer1966” bought ALL his forged merchandise from this Jeff Danzig guy.

Regardless, whoever wrote the comment above (which was incoherent and painful to even get through) obviously has serious mental issues. It is sad to see what some people will try to do to get a buck in this world.  Jeff Danzig and his ebay handle “rocknroll_hell” as well as his best friend “kissdestroyer1966 “ have completely  fake merchandise and are scam artists plain and simple. It has been PROVEN over and over and over again by all the industry top professionals. Let me refer you to some of the online discussions related to these scammers. It is easy to see after reading all the posts and comments regarding these guys that they are trying to rip people off.

http://live.autographmagazine.com/forum/topics/kissdestroyer1966-is-at-it-again

http://live.autographmagazine.com/forum/topics/van-halen-opinions-please#comments

The commenter above also did not even address the issue of who this Jeff Danzig guy really is? Again, Glenn Danzig has NO son! Again, Glenn Danzig has NOOOOO son.  So who is this guy pretending to be his son when Glenn himself has stated repeatedly he has no children?  It’s so pathetically obvious this is a person trying to convince people he is Glenn’s son only to give him false credibility.  How many industry experts have to prove beyond a shadow of a doubt that all your merchandise is forged before you give up your scam and get a real job?

Both Jeff and his sad friend really need to find themselves a better hobby. I found the above post truly hilarious when the commenter said that Gene Simmons would never allow fake kiss memorabilia into the market,,, as if Gene has any control over it. This strange stalker guy in the videos above, who isn’t even Jeff but is “kissdestroyer1966” himself seems to be so desperate that he travels around the country, stalking Kiss Members and freaking them out to say what he wants them to say on camera, just so they can get rid of him!  I hope that enough people read this so we can prevent Jeff Danzig aka “rocknroll_hell” on Ebay from taking advantage of anymore innocent collectors. Enough is enough and I say again.. The jig is up!

RocknRoll_Hell Is the "Real Deal"

AUTHOR: JP - ()

Music Memorabilia Seekers/Lovers,

This “Rip-Off Report” claiming Jeff Danzig and his eBay Store “RocknRoll_Hell”, is misleading, inherently incorrect, and has little to no factual data to support the accusations. In fact, some of the points made are just laughable! 

Let’s start by evaluating the accuser’s claims with more factual and credible information. This will assist in painting a clearer picture, providing the means to formulate a more thoughtful opinion. 

The accuser states Jeff sells fake autographs and music memorabilia on his eBay store. 

First, let’s start with his store on eBay: 

Fact - Anyone that knows his store (or has shopped there any time in the past 7 years), knows he sells absolutely NO autographed items (the reasons for this will be briefly described below). While he lists up to 500 to 1,000 music memorabilia items on his store (at any given time), ABSOLUTELY ZERO are autographed. 

As for the items that are listed in his store, the claim that they are all fabricated somehow by Jeff, is just plain ignorant. To even waste time explaining this is ridiculous. However, not everyone can understand the significance of his offerings so let’s expand on this a bit. 

Fact - Jeff offers a huge range of items over a huge range of artists and genres. 

Range of Items examples: Tour Laminates; Tour Satins (many used); Music Jewelry (key chains, necklaces, bracelets, etc.); Concert Tee Shirts (some original and some used); Sealed LP’s; Non-sealed LP’s; Promo LP’s; Picture Discs; Tour Posters; Sealed Posters; Promo Posters; Promo CD’s; Tour Books; RIAA Awards (some to famous persons or persons in the Music Industry); Bumper Stickers; Patches; Hats; Jackets; Unpublished photos; and the list goes on, and on, and on…. Many of these items are sealed from the factory, aged and/or used. 

Range of artist examples: Let’s keep this simple and say that he has items that represent artists from Country, Folk, Dance/Disco, Pop, Alternative, Progressive Rock, Glam Rock, Rock, Hard Rock, Punk Rock, Metal, Rap, and the list goes on, and on, and on… However, you will note that most items are from the 80’s, 90’s and 00’s, as that is when he was doing his heavy purchasing as a young adult. 

Summary: To think Jeff is fabricating these items in his basement is nothing more than a joke! Think about it. How does one age the items he or she sells? Is there an “Aging Machine” that works like a microwave and will age items that are brand new to the exact era they came from? Does he fabricate and perfectly package promo items that aren’t even available to the public but are only sent to select organizations/persons? Does he make picture discs with his plastic forming tools in the basement then somehow affix photos to make them look perfectly like the picture discs from the various artists from that given era? Oh yeah, then place the disc in the “Aging Machine” which can defy carbon dating. 

I mean come on! Give us all a break! This claim is a complete waste of all of our time. 

Next let’s move on to Autographs: 

Fact - Jeff had a very large autographed music collection. Especially from bands such as KISS, AC/DC, Black Sabbath, Metallica, Motley Crue, Van Halen, and more. He sold most of his collection to Music Authenticators, friends or persons that he trusts (Paypal transactions and emails to prove it). Many of his LP’s, posters, and photos have been sold off and are people’s closets, on their walls, or in the market. 

Fact - Jeff has been criticized for selling fake autographs for several years now. In fact, many of his friends or persons that have bought stuff from him and tried to “flip” it on eBay have had their listings removed, their accounts terminated, and their Paypal accounts frozen. Of course the Music Authenticators that purchased his items and authenticated them (by attaching the stickers from Companies they represent), have made it unscathed, no issues. How convenient. 

Fact - Jeff started collecting autographed items when he was very young. He mainly collected KISS during the time he was shopping and spent thousands and thousands of dollars at the Rainbow Rock (later known as Rainbow Rockatorium) Music Store in Brick, NJ. He got most of his money from his family that paid cash for the items he desired as a young kid. He was spoiled by some of his relatives. 

Fact - The Rainbow Rock (Rockatorium) was owned by Al Munson (famous bootleg photographer and autograph seeker), and his partner, Garry Danko (who was the beneficiary of much of the Vinny Collection after it was sold to him by Danny Stanton). They (Al and Garry), purchased thousands of items (Garry estimates he had over 15,000 items signed from the band) from the Vinny Gonzales collection as well as other KISS collections that were for sale during the 80’s, 90’s and early 00’s. (Keeping in mind KISS was not very popular during the non-makeup era and people were almost giving their collections away including the famous KISS Fan, Vinny Gonzales.) 

Fact - As Garry has indicated, Danny Stanton brought the “Mother Load” of KISS collections to him in huge quantities over a 10 week period. Garry claims that Danny would bring 30 to 40 boxes of items from Vinny’s collection and sell them at dirt cheap prices. Garry, so overwhelmed with the collection he was purchasing, wasn’t sure where he would store all the stuff. His store wasn’t that big. 

Fact - Jeff, who frequented the store, literally purchased thousands of KISS autographed items. Additionally, he purchased tons of items from the KISS Conventions in NY/NJ, as well as other parties in the KISS Convention circle at that time. Again, stuff was cheap and there was a lot of it. Ask anyone that was around for the first KISS Conventions in NY/NJ. 

Fact - In this time, drugs were very prevalent with the Rock Bands. eBay was nonexistent and many people associated with Rock and Roll were selling their souls for cash. Since Garry and Al would pay cash for items, many of the band members, staff and/or management, would bring music items to the store in exchange for money. Including autographed items! 

Fact - The Rainbow Rock (Rockatorium) was very popular and a haven to get cash for Music Memorabilia. Many persons would trade in their autographed and non-autographed items to get cash for drugs. This is how they got so much cool stuff. Garry says that every band and artist back in the day (80’s, 90’s and 00’s) had a band member or associate that would “Pawn” off items (concert tee shirts, hats, jewelry, promo items, posters, photos, many of which were autographed and even record awards) to get cash. The Rainbow Rock (Rockatorium) was “The Music Pawn Shop” in the NY/NJ area. It was well known in the music industry. He provides examples such as Bruce Springsteen’s manager, a couple of male lovers that hung out with Madonna frequently, all the members of Bon Jovi, Sabastian Bach, Ace Frehley, Peter Criss, and so on. 

Fact - Jeff being too young to venture on his own at this time would not only purchase KISS items but also items from other artists to satisfy his desire to collect Music Memorabilia. He bought as much as he could with the funds provided to him from his not so distant family. He was inherently a hoarder and loved autographs and other items. 

Fact - Over the era of the 80’s, 90’s and 00’s he would purchase every autographed and non-autographed item that was sold, that he and his family could afford. 

Fact - As Jeff got older he realized the Danzig name meant something in the music industry (although it was not really significant). The Misfits were far from popular and Glenn struggled to make a name for himself. However, he was able to use the name to gain him access and make contacts that would benefit him at a later date. 

Fact - From this Jeff gained VIP access to many venues and made contacts with many other sources. He personally obtained autographs in person or from persons in the industry. His collection of photographs and autographs were equal to no one in the industry. His collection of items couldn’t be matched. 

Fact - As Jeff got older and ventured on his own and eBay became a power house in the industry, Jeff started selling off his collection. He started selling autographed and non-autographed items. Most of his autographed items were being bought by persons such as Roger Epperson (Epperson Real), Steven Grad (PSA/DNA) and Michael Hoppe (World of Autographs and associate of Global Authentics). (Jeff has Paypal transactions, email exchanges and phone records to support this claim.) 

Fact - These persons who all had ties to authentication Companies (or are authenticators themselves as is the case with Roger and Steven), purchased thousands of dollars worth of Jeff’s items. They in turn would place authentication stickers on the items and list on eBay or private Websites. The prices they asked were 10 times higher than what they paid (typically $1000). Due to the high asking price items would sell at a very slow rate. Since Jeff was on his own now and had bills to pay, he needed to sell faster than they were buying. In turn he would sell to friends who would sometimes flip on eBay. This upset Roger, Steven and Michael. They told Jeff he shouldn’t sell to persons that were going to list on eBay grossly undercutting their pricing. He told them to “pack sand”. Big mistake. These guys were the eBay police working for the Head of Safety and Trust with eBay. Collectively they used their influence to have items that competed with theirs removed from eBay. This was the start of them “Blacklisting” Jeff’s autograph collection. They ended up with inventory that they couldn’t sell (or they sell in the background) but they didn’t care as long as they destroyed Jeff and his collection. They continue this effort quite successfully today. However, as is always the case, the truth and honesty will prevail. Good luck getting his stuff authenticated although some does get by from time to time. There are many items from the Vinny Gonzales collection that have been authenticated but if you send in a similar item at a later date it will most likely fail. Go figure. 

Fact - Music authentication has no forensic or scientific means. You are paying for nothing more than an opinion. And there is NO accountability to failing an item. They still get paid. There are absolutely no qualifications to be an authenticator and the business isn’t regulated. Anyone can do it but if you aren’t in the “Jelly Club” and align with others in the industry, you too will be blacklisted. It is very corrupt and driven by money and power. Don’t put your trust in them, they are a waste of money.

 Fact - If Jeff Danzig was this master forger ripping off the KISS Army trust that Gene Simmons would have him destroyed. He allows Jeff to do business because he realizes the stuff is good. Keep in mind Gene Simmons is the smartest of the KISS members that really cares about the memorabilia market. He doesn’t allow people to abuse the KISS name. View the video links below and you will get the opinion of actual KISS members on Jeff’s items. 

Summary: Jeff’s autograph music memorabilia collections are the best. He pursued these items out of passion and love for the music. He loves what he stands for and despises the fraud he is accused of. Those of you that want to crucify him will do so without rhyme or reason. So be it, he stands by his beliefs. Good luck!
