Fan-filmed video footage of DANZIG performing at Nokia Theatre in New York City on October 27, 2007 can be viewed below (courtesy of "dkstar222").

According to Rock N Roll Experience's Bob Suehs, who attended the concert, Glenn "was in a bad mood after the fall — he cut the show short and he nixed the MISFITS set with Doyle and was yelling at Todd Youth [guitar] the rest of the night telling him to slow down his playing. The story I was told from a security guard was that Glenn dislocated his shoulder, but I can't confirm that. However, he was hurt badly because he did not meet fans after the show... he ran directly to the bus and didn't come out."

DANZIG's October 25, 2007 show at The Worcester Palladium in Worcester, Massachusetts was cancelled due to Glenn Danzig's shoulder injury. There is no word yet on a possible makeup date.

Glenn has been sporting an arm sling at the last few concerts, which are in support of "The Lost Tracks of Danzig", the two-CD set that was released May 29, as well as Glenn's limited-edition book "Drukija, Contessa of Blood" (loosely based on the legend of 17th century vampire Countess Elizabeth Bathory, and illustrated by long time collaborator Simon Bisley).

"The Lost Tracks" is comprised of 26 previously unreleased tracks that span Danzig's entire career and were originally recorded during the band's seven-album "arc" that began with 1988's "Danzig".

I met him ounce.He was a bit standoffish to say the least.(rumor's of white supremacist affiliation etc.)So I'm inclined to agree with post 1.On the other hand I can't deny his accomplishment's.He's been highly infuential.Besides unlike Phil Anselmo Danzig never got up on stage and made racist remark's.Atleast not that I'm aware....

So maybe he really is just an a$$hole.Then againe you show me somebody white that's never engaged in racial slur's I'll show you a three year old.

That's a bit unfair Blackdog, I know plenty of whites that have never made a racial slur and despise racism in all it's forms. Take Barney Greenway for example, I bet that man has never and will never engage in making racial slurs.

Alright then mate, I wasn't having a go at you or anything, no worries. Anyway, never liked any of Danzig's bands (and that includes Misfits- the most overrated band of all time) and I don't like the guy himself.

The problem with racism is that there's no good white jokes. Or at least, I havn't heard any. If there were as many white jokes as black jokes, everybody would be happy. Or, unhappy, more like, hahah. The way it is at the moment, racism is biased against blacks/spicks/whatever. Racism is BULLSH!T, but rare few of the jokes are funny in a stupid kind of way. Tell me a good white joke, I'll laugh just as hard.

I don't know about the N word, hey. I mean, as far as I can tell, rappers use it more than anyone else really does. Maybe that's just because I live in Australia, but it seems interesting that the word is acutely offensive from a white person's mouth, and just a term of acknowledgement/identification (like 'bro' or 'dude' or 'man') from a black person's mouth. I've said the word before, but never to offend. More just in imitation of rapper or gangsta speech, hahah.

And Glenn Danzig's a frickin' IDIOT!

Yeah this is all terribly true.Unfortunate but true.I'll tell you what the poem was about.(not the actual lyric's.My buddies an aspireing rapper so I'm not gonna just put his work out there like that)It's about how the N word was primarily used as a word of exclusion against black people.Then somewhere down the road black's decided they were gonna own this insult and the stigma that comes with it.Ultimatley shown when N.W.A. came to prominence.Ultimatley takeing away the power over black people from the people who use it as an insult.(let's face it.Someone white say's that you got a riot on your hand's)Ounce it was finally embraced by Black people on that level.All of a sudden Whites started useing it as a way to try and get in with black's ounce they started useing it as a word of exclusion against white's.So now what you have is a generation of white kid's getting into serious problems with black's because they don't really know better and all they gotta do is go to the local record store and buy a CD that's loaded with the offending word.So they think it's OK.When in actuality it's not.Honestly I really think the word should be removed from the english language since nobody want's to use it in terms of what it actually mean's.Anyway the poem was really deep.
