Here's are a few links to Glenn Danzig getting knocked
the #### out by North Side Kings singer Danny Marianinho.
VIDEO OF DANZIG GETTING KNOCKED OUT.
In case you don't know what went down,
Danny Marianinho released the following
statement about what went happened that
Before crazy rumors begin to spread I would
like to explain what happened:
"NORTH SIDE KINGS (web site) were to play with
DANZIG last night in Tuba City, Arizona. To make
a long story short the whole show was a disaster
and a few bands got
bumped off. Mr. Danzig
(or his management??) refused to push back the original
scheduled time slot so NORTH SIDE KINGS and
RAPID FIRE would have to play 'after' his set.
Whatever — we agreed to play later because
we drove 6 hours and didn't feel like going
home without playing.
"Needless to say, as soon as DANZIG was finished,
the venue turned on the lights and DANZIG's crew
and the staging company began to take the stage
apart almost instantly. I confronted Mr. Danzig backstage
while he was signing autographs and told him
I thought he was an ####### because of his
'rock star' attitude and no consideration towards the
FEW other bands that got bumped off tonight. In
a fit of rage he turned around and slammed me
into the wall yelling '#### you, mother####er,' trying
to be a big, tough guy in front of his fans. I, in
self-defense, punched him in the face, knocking
him out as he was attacking me again. He went
down, bleeding from his mouth, eyes rolled back,
and in shock that he got knocked to the floor so quickly.
"A friend happened to tape the entire incident and
this is all documented. Many witnesses saw him
attack me, and I did what any man would do.
Danzig finishes up close to midnight. We're getting
ready to throw everything up on stage. The Venue
turns all the lights on. Turns off all the power amps
(which you can't just flip back on on a PA like that).
The PA starts to be taken down and everyone leaves.
So, we're backstage in this huge hall. Some kids had
snuck back there and were getting pictures with the
band members. Danzig came back and started giving
autographs and taking pictures with people while this
was going on.
So, I can see Danny just steamed up. He walks up to
Danzig and shakes his hand. He tells Danzig that we
drove 6 hours to play this show and that it was ridiculous
that we couldn't play. Danny asks him who does he think
he was that he couldn't push his set back an hour to let
us play. Danzig asked him why we didn't go play right now.
Danny tells him that the crew was taking down the PA
and all the kids have left. (Now Danny was not yelling,
was not getting in Glen's face, and was not even being
a dick. He was just posing this question to Danzig.)
Danzig replies with "#### you mother####er!" and
pushes Danny as hard as he can. Danny sprung back
with a big hook right to Danzig's face while screaming
"who the #### do you think you are putting your
hands on me!". Danzig goes down like a sack of
potatoes. He's bleeding from his mouth and is fully
stunned. A couple of these "security guards" push
Danny back. He screams "that was some self
defense shit bitch!" I was laughing so loud, and
Dan Fox screamed "YEAH!!" and turned his amp
up louder and started ripping solo's. Danzig had
no idea what to do. the security guards picked him
after a good forty five seconds and ran him to the
We thought we were gonna have to fight the whole town.
But the people that saw it knew that Danny didn't start it.
That was the best part. Danzig assaulted Danny! haha.
The video camera was hidden as soon as possible. An
ambulance came over to the bus. There was cops there
at the show, and none of them ever even talked to Danny.
Basically, the guy was just talking to Danzig and had
the right to be bummed out, and Glenn was out of line
for telling him to #### off and shove him for no real
reason. But Glenn is a well documented prick and
finally had somebody bitch slap him. Looks like new
Metal Moment for the next VH-1 special!
Our official Metal Sludge verdict is that the punch
was justified. Case closed.
