Glenn Danzig - Penny Blood Magazine Interview

Navigating multiple forms of media, but predominantly known for musical compositions, Glenn Danzig will, most likely, be forever associated with a sonic landscape that aliens, demons, succubae, and serial killers all roam in twisted harmony. His voice is situated somewhere between Elvis and Jim Morrison, distinct and versatile across tonal ranges. As a songwriter, his talents have inspired some of the very icons who first inspired him. Working with a DIY my way or the highway flair, he succeeded in not simply surviving a cutthroat business, but earning a luminary place in entertainment history. Further spreading his demon wings to encompass books, film and more, his work seems almost unbounded within the horror genre. Now in his early fifties, the guy is still running strong, bucking commercialism as he did thirty years ago, and delivering plenty of menacing entrées for those who dare to feast...

Originally scheduled for release on October 30th, 2001, "Misfits 12 Hits From Hell" would have been the latest release of all original Misfits material; a complete group of songs from the MSP sessions recorded August 7th, 1980. Just like the "Static Age" album, "12 Hits From Hell" was originally slated to be a full length Misfits album. Instead the songs were never released as a whole but instead they were split up and put out separately; some released on an original 7-inch EP (3 Hits from Hell), some ended up on bootlegs, some the collection CD's and eventually most of the songs ended up in different areas on the Misfits Box Set. Strange enough, it wasn't until the release of the Misfits Box Set put out in 1996 that all of these songs were available to the general public for the first time. But even then the songs were shuffled sporadically between the different CD's in the box set and the mixes of the songs did not match up with each other...

You were the last person to play drums for the classic Misfits lineup (Glenn Danzig/Doyle/Jerry Only). Tell us the story of what happened that night: Why Brian Damage only played one song, how you got the opportunity to play in his place, and why that set led to the demise of The Misfits:

"The Necros were opening that night which was at the Greystone in Detroit on Devil's Night. Glenn got a bunch of Gin before the show and started to drink, as did Brian Damage. Jerry and Doyle were not hanging out with everyone else, it seemed like they were already arguing or something. Brian got way too drunk and could not play at all and Doyle grabbed him and tossed him out in the alley and everyone starts yelling for me to play. Brian was using my drums anyway and I had already played a show for them in NYC a year earlier after Googy had quit but before Robo came in. Jerry and Glenn argued after the show about Brian and Glenn being quite drunk himself, he threw up onstage when they went on. They were going to take me to Germany with them but they broke up instead and that was that. Poor Brian had to drive back to New Jersey with them in that toxic environment, it must have sucked!"

How do you think you played considering it was an impromptu performance?

"I thought I played quite well actually, I was already warmed up after our set and Misfits drumming is not nearly as complex as the stuff I was playing with the Necros. I was the only logical choice to sit in. I remember that I refused to play Earth A.D. material, I never listened to that album anyway and I was not totally familiar with the songs."

I've read that your band "The Necros" played with The Misfits many times over the years. Are there any stories in particular that stand out in your mind that you wouldn't mind sharing?

"The Necros played with the Misfits many, many times. Most memorable would be Bob's Place in L.A. with Social D in the middle of the bill. This place was in Watts and the brothers in the hood did not dig it at all. All the bands had to call the cops to get out of the club afterward with our money, which for us was like 50 bux! I got to do a sound check for them when we opened up in NYC for the Halloween show, Googy was stuck on the subway. I sat in for a whole set a few months later at Irving Plaza before the whole Robo era. Beastie Boys opened. Seeing them and opening up in Detroit at Bookies for the first time was great!"

Do you still keep in touch with Glenn, Doyle, and Jerry?

"I see Jerry at shows every few years and I usually sit in on a song. Doyle is not in the band anymore and I have not seen Glenn in years."

What have you been up to lately? Any new musical projects?

"I moved to Northern California 4 years ago but I am still in a band based in Toledo called Boogaloosa Prayer. We are punk rock blues and gospel. Dig it..."

Well, thank you so much for taking the time to answer these questions!

"Thank you! Keep in touch and Cheers, TS"
