Danzig Tries To Be A Tough Guy With Photographer At Bonnaroo

Glenn Danzig

Can we all just agree to fucking stop giving Glenn Danzig work? Can you folks who book festivals and those of you who organize tours…can you just fucking stop hiring this dude?

I think Glenn Danzig — who has a shitty memory — needs some humbling. If people stopped treating him like the rock star he isn’t, then maybe this glorified hack would learn to fucking chill the fuck out.

Glenn stopped his Danzig Legacy set at this weekend’s “Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival” to get in the face of a photographer who ignored the fest’s filming ban.

We have video of that nonsense at the end of this post; I’m sorta late on this, so chance are you’ve seen it. Fucking traffic. And fucking douchebag road rage assholes.

The photographer works for alternative weekly Nashville Scene, which issued this statement: “As a personal rule, I tend to speak unfavorably about Bonnaroo bands who don’t allow media into the press pit. After all, it is the press pit. But hey, sometimes, for whatever reason, your services are not needed. For Danzig Legacy, we let that slide, considering they at least let us in the sweet spot. The muscle-bound godfather of horror-core strictly forbade celluloid of any sort. No photo, no video, and some would-be photogs seen snapping a shot were sometimes squirted with water guns by security.

“In fact, Glenn himself took issue with one photog in particular. The shutterbug in question our own Michael W. Bunch, who was photographing some people in the crowd dancing. Mid-song, Danzig ran to the side the of the stage pointing and screaming before approaching security and then proceeded to run all the way past the side stage, almost into the crowd to “walk among us.” As you can see from the exclusive footage above, security soon slowed his roll, and Danzig returned to stage after a matter of minutes. (More on the performance in Lance’s post.) Bunch told us that he was certain ‘Danzig was going to kick [his] ass.’ Awesome.”
