    I was Kevin Allin’s counselor for a year while he was in a prison in Michigan (Adrian Temporary Facility; D Unit). Had many talks with him in my office, and although he was guarded and didn’t make much eye contact- at first, anyway- he loosened up enough after a while for me to see the person behind the image, at least to a good degree. Although he had obvious personality and mental issues, Kevin Allin was not very much the same as the stage persona GG Allin, which is how his fans knew him. Although there were some similarities, Kevin was rather quiet, could be found most of the time on his top bunk (in an open dorm-type setting; i.e., no “cells”), presented a somewhat timid persona, and as the corrections officers I supervised agreed, seemed to be intimidated by the black inmates. Pretty much none of the other inmates knew who he was, and he purposely kept it that way. At one point he came up to one of my officers while holding his face, and “snitched out” another inmate who had punched him. When it came down to it, and as evident in his stage shows, he wasn’t actually a real good “fighter.”

    At one point when he was nearing parole, I asked him “Kevin, you’re in your mid-thirties now, how long do you think you can keep doing what you do?” He responded that he was working on composing country songs, and seemed to suggest he would go in that direction, although he slid right back into his former persona and “career” immediately after parole. At that point I knew it was a matter of time for some kind of shit to really hit the fan, and it didn’t take long…
    My take on the guy is this: like so many people, he would have much preferred recognition and fame in the “traditional" rock star way, ala the Stones or maybe the NY Dolls. However, his limited vocal and musical skills (which are evident on “home” videos of him and brother Merle playing acoustic guitars and singing) forced him toward a more “punk” approach, and because even those attempts took him only so far, the music became increasingly irrelevant and “the show” became more about the only “talent” he had that set him apart from every other rocker on the planet- more increasingly bizarre behavior, actions, and words that nobody else would even attempt. Basically, it boiled down to this: at that point, either become GG Allin or fade into obscurity. Although there’s a lot of truth regarding record company weasels, Kevin wasn’t personally really serious about his “role” and “message”- after all, nobody except maybe his most hardcore fans ACTUALLY believed his schtick about “saving rock and roll”, especially by “spilling blood.” And no, we weren’t holding him as a “political prisoner” in order to stop him from this mission (as more than one letter to us from outraged fans claimed.) And yes, Kevin Allin had to have certain personality traits that would allow him to morph into GG when the show was on. But it all was very necessary to the caricature, the image, and wasn't how he would have written his own script.
    I come from a unique background myself and have known some real characters, so I actually liked the guy, and felt some empathy for him, because in the end, I’m pretty convinced of this- if Merle Allin (Sr.) had not been who he was, there would have been no GG Allin- only Kevin, and who knows, he might have turned out to be a rather sweet guy.

      @@danielmenjivar793 A semi-humorous story: In 2016 I planned a three-week road trip for my wife and I through all of New England. At one point heading north out of the White Mountains to go eventually to Stove, VT I saw that it would take us right past Littleton NH, where GG is buried. I said to the wife, why not, and told her how some of his fans that visit leave things and/or do things to his headstone (there’s a video of Merle catching them peeing on it.) When we got there I found it’s not a big cemetery, so we drove up and down the lanes looking for it, but no luck. We then saw three cemetery workers who looked like they were getting ready to call it a day, and I drove up, got out, went up to them and the short conversation went pretty much like this: Me, politely: “Can you tell me where GG Allin’s grave is at?” The leader, who looked at me and gave a one-word reply: “No.” Me, again politely: “Oh… is there a reason you can’t?” Him: “They removed his headstone, because people were doing all kinds of things they weren’t supposed to.” Me: “I see, although I’m not really a fan or anything, I was his counselor when he was in prison.” Him, looking straight at me: “Well apparently you didn’t do a very good job.” Me, laughing pretty good, “Well, I can’t really deny that, can I?” I then said, “I wouldn’t pee or whatever on his grave, I would be respectful.” Him, nodding to one of the workers: “Take him up there.” The guy got in a truck, led us a short way to near the street adjoining the cemetery, and pointed to a bare spot (no grass) next to another headstone. I thanked him, stood there a while, thought a few things about Kevin Allin, and felt a sort of pity that I always had for him.
      So unless they’ve replaced it in the past five years or so, if you go to the cemetery, don’t plan on dumping drinks on his headstone, and good luck finding his grave.

      People who understand psychology are way too quick to just replace one's reality with a diagnosis. Maybe he did want to make a statement to the world through his art, even with the drug-fueled mentally ill reality he had nurtured through his entire life.
      Psychological analysis itself is not enough to peek at someone's reality. Sigmund Freud used to diagnose women with 'hysteria' because they would feel sudden waves of distress and anxiety. Now, in retrospect, it could very well be that these women were feeling distressed by the fact they were aware of their precarious position in late 19th - early 20th century society.

    I saw this maniac live in the early 90’s because some friends said I had to see it. They told me the stories so I was on guard in the show. It was in a dive bar/small club. It was standing room only so we stood against one of the walls to the side. He was pacing back and forth naked across the stage and reminded me of a caged, not in a great mood, big zoo cat. I was standing right underneath a single, bare light bulb that was hanging from the ceiling. I’ve been to a lot of shows so I know how to handle myself. He was drinking beer and throwing the crushed cans around. I knew he could easily see me because I was kind of spotlighted under the bulb. We weren’t that close but close enough. I was waiting for it. I knew it was coming. I didn’t take my eyes off him. The crowd was chanting “ Cut your dick! cut your dick!” Sure enough, winged a crushed can straight at my head. He had targeted me but I was watching his every move. He tried several times to nail me in the face with a can but the closest he got was the first one that hit the concrete wall right above my head. It wasn’t his best show. I’d rather see GWAR any day. People just wanted the self destructive spectacle.
    I’d rather see a professional band than this tragic guy. I think he was dead within a few short years. So I can say I saw that maniac. Lost soul for sure.

He came to visit Mark once and brought him over my house. True to form he was completely normal offstage. I will never forget this guy standing in my parents bedroom doorway. Wearing these ripped shorts with fishnets and no underwear, his junk half hanging out...I remember clearly, him just standing there completely normal meeting my mom already in bed, and him saying in a friendly voice...”hi Mrs. Walsh!” I’ll always remember that even though the end was truly a sad time, from what I heard from mark the funeral was a spectacle too.

What he says, regardless of how you may feel about it, is just common sense and a truthful view of our so called "civilised society", I heard him out, and he was honest of the condition. A friend owned an old warehouse in a warehouse district close to downtown Dallas, that he made into a BYOB underground venue (unlicensed), GG was booked there, I worked the door collecting money and stamping hands, and as security. After the show in the wee hours of morning, we hung out backstage, GG ran some heroin (IV), and I offered him some of my bottle, in a more laid back environment, and he was relaxed, he had views of the condition that made sense ... or at least questioned much of our system, something we should all do more of.

His father was an abusive religious fanatic who threatened his family with death, digging graves in their cellar and threatening to fill them in the near future. In an essay titled "The First Ten Years", Allin wrote that Merle Sr. wanted to kill his family in a murder-suicide. He "despised pleasure" and allowed his family "very little contact with others". They lived a "primitive existence" and "were more like prisoners than a family". Allin also stated that his mother attempted to escape before she filed for divorce, but Merle Sr. thwarted the attempt by kidnapping Allin. What he ended up being was probably the best possible outcome.

    In black metal there are a couple of singers who are similar to GG Allin, Niklas Kvarforth of Shining, and Nattefrost from Carpathian Forest.

    I agree with the comment that he was more of a performance artist than a musician . He was a definite guy who knew how to push the envelope . He would have killed someone or his self if he'd of lived longer for sure . But what an artist I say the scene needs guys like him . And what friends he had to party like that at his funeral . Nice run GG Allin

    It is interesting how much foresight and insight can be found in the words of such souls. The timing of this statement from his manifesto couldn't be more applicable....

    I saw a GG show a few weeks before his death. I talked to him before the show and he seemed fairly normal and polite. As the soon as the music started he turned into a animal. He was throwing shit and he chased about 3/4 of the crowd out of the venue at one point. It was actually scary because one had the sense he could do anything.
