Jared Black

Former frontman of '80s hair metal band Black Plague and an ancillary character in the "Abuse" episode of Law & Order: Special Victims Unit (first aired 26 Jan. 2001). How ancillary? IMDB doesn't even list the actor, even though he's in a few minutes of a court scene. Anyway, Black is married to country singer Ricki Austin, and they neglect their kids.

Fun fake band connection: One of the kids that Austin and Black neglect is played by Hayden Panettiere. Eleven years later she began starring as country singer Juliette Barnes in Nashville.

The band's name may be a nod to the Black Plague from The Adventures of Ford Fairlane, or it could be a coincidence.
