Glenn Danzig Says There Will Be “No More Misfits Shows” After Their New York Concert

According to Glenn Danzig, Misfits’ October 19 concert at Madison Square Garden in New York, NY will be their final reunion show. The frontman confirmed the news to Bionic Buzz while on the red carpet of the September 16 premiere of Rob Zombie’s new movie “3 From Hell.” He simply said the following: “no more Misfits shows except for MSG.” This news isn’t too surprising considering legal documents previously surfaced and seemed to suggest that the band were only obligated to play 10 shows following a settlement between Danzig and Jerry Only. However, it’s worth mentioning that this show will be their 12th. On another note, I recently went to the band’s Oakland, CA show and my review can be found HERE.

Doyle Blasts “Scumbags” That Illegally Download Music, Says He Doesn’t Like Doing Meet & Greets

During a recent interview with The Liquid Conversations, Doyle (Misfits) was asked about the changing music industry and the ways in which he has learned to adapt to it. While discussing that, the guitarist blasted people that illegally download music, while also blaming them for him having to do things like meet and greets, which he hates.

Here’s an exchange from The Liquid Conversations:

Over the years, how has the industry changed and how you had to adapt to it?

“The thing that sucks the most about it is that everybody steals music. You spend thousands and thousands of dollars to make a record and all of these scumbags are just stealing it.

And then they want more, and then you’re a dick because you’re doing a meet ‘n’ greet for 50 fucking bucks to make up for it, which you don’t want to do. You think I want to meet all these fucking people? I don’t.

When I’m done, I just want to take a shower and go to bed. I just worked, so…”

Looking at that aspect, you feel that people, the fans, put some undue pressure on you because of something like that, because you charge $50 for a meet ‘n’ greet?

“They can kiss my ass. You want to steal shit? If I was making motorcycles and they came and took one, would that be a crime? Why can’t we punish people for stealing songs? There should be a $10,000 fine for that.”

The industry, certain aspects of it protect you, but a lot of it doesn’t. It’s weird because you put so much time and effort into it, and it’s almost like people are literally stealing from you like you said.

“Yeah, they should really fucking fix that shit. Shut the internet down for a day and fix it.”

The guitarist also discussed Spotify and streaming services:

“You make nothing, it’s $9 a month, and you can listen to a song 10,000 times if you want. If there’s enough time in that month to listen to it 10,000 times, I don’t know… I can’t do the math, but how much do you think the bands get? It’s like a hundredth, maybe a thousandth of a penny you get. My girlfriend [Arch Enemy‘s Alissa White-Gluz] went to their office, said that shit was insane. I would’ve went fucking mental, I would’ve started breaking everything.”

He also defended Metallica’s decision to go after Napster years back:

“Lars Ulrich was right when he sued fucking Napster. And everybody thought he was a dick. He didn’t do it for him. He’s got the fucking money. He did it for fucking jerkoffs like me.”

Metal Allegiance, the band featuring core members David Ellefson (Megadeth), Alex Skolnick (Testament), Mike Portnoy (Sons Of Apollo, ex-Dream Theater, etc.) and Mark Menghi, performed at The House Of Blues in Anaheim, CA last night (January 24) and a stream of the show is available below. That concert saw the band performing Black Sabbath‘s self-titled debut album in full, as well as some of their own songs and covers of Slayer, Sepultura, Iron Maiden, etc. tracks. The following guests took part in the concert: Andreas Kisser (Sepultura), Mark Osegueda (Death Angel), John Bush (Armored Saint), Chuck Billy (Testament), Bobby Blitz (Overkill), Trevor Strnad (The Black Dahlia Murder), Mark Tornillo (Accept), Phil Demmel (ex-Machine Head), Alissa White-Gluz (Arch Enemy), and Doyle (Misfits).

Metal Allegiance To Cover Black Sabbath’s Self-Titled Album At Upcoming Anaheim, CA Show

Metal Allegiance, the band featuring core members David Ellefson (Megadeth), Alex Skolnick (Testament), Mike Portnoy (Sons Of Apollo, ex-Dream Theater, etc.) and Mark Menghi, have announced that they will be performing Black Sabbath’s 1970 self-titled debut album in full during their January 24 show at The House Of Blues in Anaheim, CA. That concert will also include another full set with the following guests: Andreas Kisser (Sepultura), Mark Osegueda (Death Angel), John Bush (Armored Saint), Chuck Billy (Testament), Bobby Blitz (Overkill), Trevor Strnad (The Black Dahlia Murder), Mark Tornillo (Accept), Phil Demmel (ex-Machine Head), Alissa White-Gluz (Arch Enemy), and Doyle (Misfits).

Menghi commented:

“This past October we had the idea of covering the first Sabbath record while dressing up in costume for a one-time only (scaled down) MA show.

However, we had way too much fun and decided to bring it to Anaheim and incorporate the ‘scaled down’ four piece into the massive MA Anaheim show at our home away from home in SoCal. We’ll be doing a full MA set filled with the MA thrash attack you all know and love, covered by a few sprinkles of select gems and guests dosed with the first Sabbath record.

This show is NOT to be missed and will certainly be one for the ages.”

Skolnick added:

“It is a fun challenge to play Black Sabbath’s debut album – the music has as much in common with Cream and other psychedelic jam rock of the period as the future metal genre it inspired. Playing it live for Halloween (in full early 70s Sabbath regalia) for a packed house in Brooklyn was so special that we just had to bring this experience to friends at our annual Anaheim HoB bash!”
