Danzig and Misfits frontman Glenn Danzig talked with Revolver Magazine and opens up about unexpected deaths of famous musicians like David Bowie, Prince and Chris Cornell.
He explained the story behind the reunion of Misfits. He said:
“Jerry and I resolved a lot of legal issues we had with each other. This just happened about two and a half years ago. And I’m seeing all these people die unexpectedly: [David] Bowie, Chris Cornell and Prince, really out of the blue.
And I’m just like, if we’re going to ever do this, we should do it now while we’re still healthy and we still look good and can run around onstage. I take care of myself, man. And we’re all in pretty good shape. And who knows how long we’re going to be like that. I don’t want to be onstage with crutches or a cane singing. Fuck that shit. That’s not the Misfits .
Misfits are fucking take no prisoners. It’s in your face, right to the front of the stage — smash your head against the wall until we’re done and we say goodnight. That’s what it needs to be.
I don’t want to go on tour. A show here, a show there, keep it special. I don’t want people to think we’re just milking it. We should just be selective and let people see what it really was. And so far it’s been insane.”
On possibility of new Misfits album, he said:
“I just go out there and enjoy the interaction with everybody. People are just losing their minds, so it’s a lot of fun. I try to do what I normally do. I’m just me, singing the songs I wrote, going crazy onstage and running all over.
I’m enjoying having Dave [Lombardo, ex-Slayer] drumming because he’s one of my favorite drummers of all time and it’s just so much fun.”
