There are few things in life I enjoy more than a good Danzig story. I’ll never forget the time he refused to play Fun Fun Fun Fest in Austin until he got some French onion soup, or when he said he would have played Wolverine differently in the X-Men movie than Hugh Jackman. Translation: “It wouldn’t have been as gay.” Here’s another insanity notch to add to Danzig’s increasingly notch-covered desk.
“Here is a video my friend took of Danzig trying to fight a photographer at Bonnaroo. I was there standing backstage when it happened. Glen doesn’t like his picture taken. The Bonnaroo staff allowed press in there anyway to snap some shots. The photographer was actually just taking pictures of the crowd when Glen walked to the side of the stage and flipped of the Camera guy. Then he proceeded to jump of the stage and try to kick the guy’s ass who went running scared. He had no idea what was going on in his defense. The security held Glen back and told him to chill and finally went back into his dressing room in a huff. They kicked all the photographers out of the tent and he returned a few minutes later with the Samhain set. The performance was amazing. But the negative energy was lame but to be expected for Glen. Glad I was there to see it though.”
I like to imagine that Danzig’s huffs consist of him muttering his own songs’ lyrics to himself, but changing them to be about whatever situation he’s in. So, for this ordeal, he reworked the words of “Mommy, Can I Go Out and Kill Tonight?” to, “Killed a photographer at Bonnaroo, I kept his toes and teeth/Every night I stalk around, wearing his eyes and fingers as a wreath.” Or, simply enough, “I got something to say/I killed a photographer today.”
