Wayne Billy Oh God You Devil.png
Rock star from the film Oh God, You Devil! (1984). Bobby Shelton (Ted Wass) is a struggling songwriter with a loving wife and a crappy agent. When reduced to singing at a wedding, he's approached by superagent "Harry Tophet," really Satan (George Burns), who tools around in the most evil car available at the time: the Dodge Durango! Satan gets him to sign a contract for rock superstardom.

However, Satan's rock star gig is a little weird. He doesn't just magically make Shelton rich and famous. Shelton becomes rock star Billy Wayne (Robert Desiderio), even though Wayne was around already. And there was another guy who signed with Satan and became Wayne before Shelton, only his contract with Satan ran out. And when Shelton becomes Wayne, the other guy becomes Shelton! And the whole world thinks the other guy is Shelton, including the other guy himself (?!).

Soon, Shelton becomes disenchanted being Wayne, especially when the other guy Shelton knocks up his real wife, who also thinks other guy Shelton is the real Shelton. Shelton gets unconvincingly worked up enough to commit suicide for no real apparent reason, but then God (George Burns again) and Satan play poker for his life/soul. And then there's the happy ending, and Shelton gets his life back, "Billy Wayne" is dead, and only God (and Satan) knows what happened to that other guy.

Billy's band was played by: Kent DeMarche,Trey Thompson, Charles Button, Dave Morgan, John Wolff, and Jack Kelly. One of these guys is a dead ringer for Spinal Tap's Nigel Tufnel.
