Statement On North Side Kings And Danzig Encoutner

Here is a statement is from North Side Kings frontman Danny Marianino regarding his recent confrontation with Glenn Danzig:

"Before crazy rumors begin to spread I would like to explain what happened:

North Side Kings were to play with Danzig last night in Tuba City, Arizona. To make a long story short the whole show was a disaster and a few bands got bumped off. Mr. Danzig (or his managment??) refused to push back the original scheduled time slot so North Side Kings and Rapid Fire would have to play "after" his set. Whatever - we agreed to play later because we drove 6 hours and didn't feel like going home without playing.

Needless to say, as soon as Danzig was finished, the venue turned on the lights and Danzigs crew and the staging company began to take the stage apart almost instantly. I confronted Mr. Danzig backsatge while he was signing autographs and told him I thought he was an asshole because of his "rockstar" attitude and no consideration twords the FEW other bands that got bumped off tonight. In a fit of rage he turned around and slammed me into the wall yelling "fuck you motherfucker" trying to be a big toughguy in front of his fans. I -in self defence punched him in the face knocking him out as he was attacking me again. He went down, bleeding from his mouth, eyes rolled back, and in shock that he got knocked to the floor so quickly.

A friend happened to tape the entire incident and this is all documented. Many witnesses saw him attack me, and I did what any man would do.

It was unfortunate that this went the way it did - and I hoped Glen Danzig learned a valuable lession tonight - Do not lay your hands on anyone unless you can handle what may happen.

I apologize for nothing, except for the poor little kids that had to witness this big asshole get his ass kicked in a matter of seconds..."

Yes, you represent a movement forward in human progress. You deny the state and its violent mechanations so well. Go join the marines so you can kill in your satanic pride. heavy metal sucks for obvious reasons. dark dogsh** of little substance. you are who you claim to rebel against. the christian right loves your existence for its prison industrial complex and multinational military murder machines...you are peasants.

here are my reasonings for the way this sh*t went down the way it did. 1. glenn only pushed danny. the reason for this is because he is a black belt and if he had used his martial arts in the fight he would have gone too jail.why would glenn have gone too jail? you ask. because once you reach black belt in any forme of martial arts you have to get you hands and feet registerd as deadly weopons.so if glenn had used his martial arts skills he would have destroyed danny and he would be in jail right now.2. jeet kune do is one of the weakest formes of martial arts there is the reason for this is it is an unfinished style and its unperfect i mean come on bruce lee never should have made up the style in the first place he never masterd any of his key styles like wingchung kunfu. heck bruce lee got his a$$ kicked by chuck norris.3. now if danzig had been a black belt in aikido instead of jeet kune do danny would never have touch him because when you lern that style your tought not to atack first but wait for the too atack and counter it. my point is beating up a black belt in jeet kune do is nothing to be proud of

Both guys are cool. They refer to the NSK person as the fat guy? C'mon man ! He is not that fat. I know a lot of obese people and he is not fat. He might have 'uh gut and might of had too much pasta like any of us. As far as this incedent goes - - -In the punk or hard-core community; this is our Jerry Springer moment. And to me this is sad. I did see the footage and it seems that there must have been some dialogue before the camera was filming. And I am not justifying that to be a reason for Danzig himself to push someone. That was wrong. But it was wrong for Mr. NSK guy to lay the punch. Let's admit it guy's -Our music attracts a rough and tough audience. And I feel that sometimes our egos get in the way when we hear this energetic music. And if we sing it we feel bigger than life and the music fans look upon performers as almost a godlike figure. In return these rock gods might feel the need to show this off in the behavior as seen in the video footage. C'mon folks! These are people who eat, sh**, sleep and yes - - they cry too. Danzig does not need my wishes to prosper beacuase he already has. And I do want the North Side Kings to prosper - - - with out the Andy Warhol moment. Like Danzig, NSK is just as brutal and most likely the best group of guy's one would ever know. The news that would make me happy is to know that both parties involved have addmitted to thier fault over a simple handshake. And please! Keep the Sally Jesse Raphael & Jerry Springer to the low grade people of this country - - -and keep this episode out of the music. We are much better than that ( And thats my daddy instinct for the day)
peace to you all . . . .

I think most of you are missing the point. It has nothing to do with music or a 'scene' ... It's about Danzig getting punched in the face. It's the greatest thing ever shown. So stop being little fa**ots and talking about fighting styles and music communities. Grow up and punch someone for Christ's sake
