Brian “Razzle” Williams

Note to Reader: This blog post has been put “under review” as we have had growing pains in developing the technology we use to identify twins, replicas and zombies. The eyes behind the technology are getting better, so as you read this piece note that if you are troubled by its conclusions that we will be looking at it in more depth and with better eyes. For the time being, it is speculation.


Let’s get straight to business on this one. Razzle (also known as Nicholas Dingley) was the drummer of the glam rock band Hanoi Rocks from 1982-1984. While Wiki says the band was Finnish, Razzle appears to have been born in the UK and in the only interview of him I could find, he does in fact have a British accent.

The story goes that Razzle was killed in a drunk driving accident in 1984 when his driver, Vince Neil of Motley Crue, crashed into another car in Redondo Beach, California while Hanoi Rocks was on their first American tour.

Brian Williams on the other hand was born in 1959, to Razzle’s 1960, in Ridgewood, NJ. His early life is unexciting except for a broken nose he suffered in a football game, which we will get to later. There is some overlap here, with Williams supposedly starting his broadcast career in 1981 in Pittsburg, Kansas. We’ve learned to ignore most of their early work until they start appearing on television, and even then they may just replace another individual who goes by the same name.

The earliest image of Brian Williams broadcasting I could find was in 1987 for WCBS in New York. Below are images of Williams from high school. If anybody sees any funny business in these photos, please comment below.




Brian’s career did not take off until he was hired by NBC News in 1993, nine years after Razzle died.

Let’s take a closer look at Razzle.

Looks a lot like Brian Williams in drag.

Here we have Williams.

With your naked eye you can see his asymmetrical smile. Now look at the first photo I posted of Razzle. If that image is reversed (very common), we see the same sort of asymmetry while he is smiling.

Here are their alignments:




Pretty darn exact. The biggest wildcard is Brian’s crooked nose. Did they perform plastic surgery on him? What would be the purpose, since the American public is unlikely to recognize a European glam rock drummer. Did Williams get in an accident sometime between 1984-1987? Was there a real car accident, and they just decided to “kill” Razzle off for other reasons? It is definitely a question mark to consider.
