Classical violinist from the "Death Song!" story of horror comic book Weird Terror #2 (November 1952). His rival, George Ricco, achieves success and stardom while he plays for pennies in the street. Enraged, he surprises Ricco after a concert, murders him, buries the body, smashes and burns Ricco's white violin, and gets away with it. He substitutes at the next concert when Ricco's a no-show, wows everyone with his crazed virtuosity, and becomes a star himself.
But then he is tormented and terrified by Ricco's ghost until he finally throws himself from the balcony of his 40th floor penthouse and dies.
