Anyone here a Danny Elfman fan or met him? And is he a scientologist?

Assuming this might be the best kinda forum to ask? Or so I've been told. I'm new.
Oingo is my favorite band and Elfman my favorite composer/musician.

Anyone else a fan or worked with him or others? Or Oingo?
As for scientology..this has always baffled me..if he was one.
I know its very public knowledge that his brother Richard and Bodhi (Richard's kid and Jenna) are scientologists but there's been absolutely nothing regarding Danny and the religion.
Only thing I've ever heard was that he said he became atheist when he was a kid. But, I know atheists can also be scientologists, too.

This question comes up very often in Oingo Boingo fan circles but its never once been confirmed either way.

Also, what's the prevalence that you guys encounter scientology in the music biz? However, my opinion on the religion is neutral. No real opinion one way or another as I guess nobody really knows what really goes on in it and it's really know different from other religions really.

Sorry if this sounds weird. lol

It's not a religion. And yes, it is *very* different from other religions.

As for Danny, who knows. That's his personal business surely...

I'm sure you'll get the same replies here as you got on Gearslutz.

Do you think people in the music biz go around asking each other if they are Scientologists?

These are weird questions to be asking on a music forum imo.

I agree... I don't think we can help you with your rather odd stalker's questions, Synthpop!
