Personal Quote:

GG Allin is an entertainer with a message to a sick society. He makes us look at it for what we really are. The human is just another animal who is able to speak out freely, to express himself clearly. Make no mistake about it, behind what he does is a brain. See more »


Gacy dabbled in oil paintings while in prison. He would paint Disney characters like "the Seven Dwarves", Michelangelo's "Pieta" or even self-portraits as "Pogo the Clown". After his execution these paintings have become trendy collectors items. Film director John Waters and actor Johnny Depp are some celebrities who own his paintings. His art dealer was Rick Staton of Grindhouse Graphics. See more »
