Glenn Danzig Has A Bad Memory

Glenn likes cake

Some eight years ago, Glenn Danzig pushed a man larger than him, and was subsequently knocked on his ass with one retaliatory punch to the face.

It seems Glenn doesn’t remember much from that episode. Maybe the punch rattled something loose in his cat-loving brain.

In a recent interview, Glenn was asked about that man he pushed. The man who punched Glenn was a member of the North Side Kings, who are only famous for this one moment in time, captured forever on home video. Watch the video at the end of this post, in the off chance you have never seen Danzig get knocked the fuck out.

But before you watch the video, keep in mind how Glenn sees things. What led to the altercation, Glenn?

“That was him trying to get me on camera punching him so he could sue me or some shit,” Danzig says. “I forget what it was. When everyone was breaking it up, he cold-cocked me. What are you going to do?”

While everyone was breaking it up? Watch the video, and see if anyone was breaking anything up.

Has Glenn never seen this video? If I knew there was a video of me online, getting my ass handed to me, I am sure I would try to make sure I saw it.

“So he had planned to hit you?,” the L.A. Weekly writer asks.

“Yeah, those were his guys with the camera. No one knows that. Well, back then they did. It was a setup.”

Glenn also says the punch did not hurt. What hurt was when his head hit the fucking ground when he was knocked to sleep.
