The 25th Anniversary of Danzig

Nashville Scene Critic's Pick …

Not to get too solipsistic here, but last time Glenn Danzig brought his nostalgia act to Tennessee, he didn’t vibe too well with Scene staff photographer Michael W. Bunch. Convinced Bunch was shooting him without approval at an unflattering angle during Danzig’s 2012 Bonnaroo appearance, the diminutive, muscle-bound punk-turned-metal legend stormed offstage to confront and mean-mug the photographer with angry-bro finger-pointing and I-want-your-skull-style fightin’ words. In recent years, such punk-rock prima donna dramas and non-controversies — from a knockout punch gone viral to paparazzi photos of the singer shopping for kitty litter — have followed the former Misfits frontman closely. His current tour celebrates his eponymous band’s 25th anniversary, and like his Bonnaroo performance, will feature one set of Danzig headbangers like “Mother” and “Dirty Black Summer,” and one set of Samhain and Misfits classics like “Last Caress” and “London Dungeon,” with help from classic-era Misfits guitarist Doyle Wolfgang von Frankenstein. Luckily for metal fans and Internet meme police alike, Danzig’s hair-trigger temper still pays off with potent punk-Elvis delivery and YouTube-worthy LOLs.
