Danzig Walks Off Into The Sunset

Chart Attack reports that Danzig may quit touring forever in the following article:

Say goodbye to Glenn Danzig. Currently on tour in support of his eighth studio effort, "Circle Of Snakes," and gearing up for the release of his second instrumental album "Black Aria II," this very well could be the last time you ever see the stocky crooner in your town.

And unlike the majority of aging rockers (looking at you, Ozzy), when Danzig says something, he sticks with it. Vowing to never play with The Misfits again (over a decade and still no reunion) and standing his ground despite many dust-ups — fights with various other rockers have become infamous — he has yet to go back on his word.

Not that he’s entirely committed to the idea of quitting yet. It’s still just a very strong feeling, but the fact that he’s talking about it is enough to make us blues-metal goons shake in our boots.

"I’m not really having fun [touring] anymore," he admits. "If I could magically appear onstage, do the show and then magically appear back home, I’d do it forever. You’re stuck on a bus and in some weird hotel for a month or two… it’s not the two hours onstage that are a drag, it’s the 22 hours between. But people only see the two hours so they have this idea of it. That’s not what it’s like."

If Danzig wants to please his fans though, he'll continue to tour and release albums. AND A f***IN MISFITS REUNION WOULDN'T HURT EITHER! I swear, if the guy cancels his show on me again (which now is about a week away) I'll go insane.

Well It was a good run in any event.I'm not his biggest fan but I recognize him as one of the truly great's.Perhap's he should do a few OZZFEST giggs for his swan song.IRON MAIDEN is dropping out of their last 7 dates he could fill the slot's as a surprise/parting gift to his fan's.
