|6||The Lone Ranger had an important influence on him.|
|7||The infamous "Black House" in San Francisco, used as the headquarters for the Church of Satan was supposedly a former brothel with a number of hidden passageways and trapdoors. According to property records and interviews with LaVey's relatives, the house was never used as a brothel, had previously belonged to LaVey's parents, and all the passageways were added by LaVey himself.|
|8||The date of his death was 13 days after a full moon.|
|9||He stated that he began his research into mankind's carnal side when he worked as an organist at a striptease club, and moonlighted playing at a church. He noticed that he often saw the same men in the seats in both places.|
|10||Most of LaVey's publicized life story has been shown to be fiction by researchers and occult scholars. LaVey never worked as a lion tamer or San Francisco Police photographer, never knew Marilyn Monroe, his home was never operated as a brothel, and he had no involvement with the film Rosemary's Baby (1968).|
