He co-wrote a book with Gavin Baddeley titled The Gospel of Filth which documented the history of the band. He also appeared in the movie Cradle of Fear where he portrayed The Man. He has been accused of being a Satanist, but denounced the claims and said that he was "more of a Luciferian".[2] He was ranked at #95 in the Top 100 Heavy Metal Vocalists by Hit Parader.[3]
