Video Footage Of Danzig Vs North Side Kings Singer

Photo of Danzig

Band Photo: Danzig (?)

Video footage of DANZIG frontman Glenn Danzig engaging in a physical confrontation with NORTH SIDE KINGS singer and frequent SOULFLY collaborator Danny Marianinho following DANZIG's performance in Tuba City, Arizona Saturday night (July 3) has been posted online at AZPunk.com. Also available from: Location#2 or Location#3.

With regards to the incident, Marianinho posted the following message on the BLABBERMOUTH.NET comment boards:

"I would never pick a fight with a black belt, I am not some big, tough guy looking for trouble. I have gotten my fair share of ass-kickings. We have been filming a ton of footage for almost a year now, and had three camera guys at this show to film footage. Tons of tape from the entire day. Danzig freaked the fuck out completely way out of life. His site banned my guitarist from making any statements on [the official DANZIG fan site] The7thhouse in regards to their bullshit comment saying I 'used a sharp object.' When the video is posted you will clear as hell that there is nothing in my hands. Maybe he cut his mouth on his 'vampire' teeth! Or maybe is face just opened up? Who cares — I was excited to play that show and was not expecting a fight. I was in mid conversation when he attacked me."

"And for the record — Danzig is NOT a little man. He may be short, but he is in great physical shape. Better than me, and I am at least 12 years younger. He threw me pretty hard and I reacted like anyone on this site would have."

"NORTH SIDE KINGS is not a touring band and really doesn't care about being popular. We are a hardcore band that does not want to tour. We are happy playing a few shows a year. And I wanted to clarify the subject before he put out some bullshit story — which his crew has already made crazy allegations. Still to this time he has not tried to contact me to apologize for being a mental case..."

"Once again, I liked DANZIG — otherwise we wouldn't have even been on the show. The guy is out of control. The video shows it all — and it was very uncalled for on his end."

"He caught me off guard when he attacked me — but I caught him with a good jab. That's it in a nutshell."

"The lesson here: respect the bands on your shows cause we are all people. Maybe when he is in Europe he will be more polite to the local bands on his shows. It's a shame this course had to be taken."

I am a huge Danzig fan, and even I agree that he got what he deserved. Danny was very lucky to get that first, very powerful blow in, because Glenn Danzig does know how to fight. He must be getting slow in his old age.

Just because Danzig is stocky and has lifted weights doesn't mean he knows how to fight...and being a black belt don't always mean anything either. I'm glad his punk a$$ got beat down...he acted like a sixth grader and got treated like one. Anyone who shoves someone (especially a black belt) knows full well that there will be retaliation...so whoever said it was a sucker punch is a moron. IMHO, his fighting ability about as good as his musical talent!

This sad event certainly taints the already diminishing dark legacy of Danzig. What an embarassing sight to see when a persona exuding such a well established, albeit mostly self proclaimed aura of satanic strength is smashed to the deck by an upstart. Danzig's honor has been drenched by the urine of truth. I think that Danzig should challenge this man who has humbled him to a charity boxing match where both will be prepared and their true natures on display within the ring.

f*** Glenn's b**** ass. He's treated everyone like sh** for the past 30 years and finally got what was coming to him. His music has sucked since 1994 anyway, his voice is shot, his hair is balding, and his aura is gone.

Damn, I'm a Danzig fan... but he got what he deserved. Don't lay your hands on someone unless you're prepared to fight. Danzig clearly wasn't prepared. It also seems as if Danzigs reaction (before the punch) was an attempt to impress the crowd. How embarrassing.

SamHayne has a good point. It looks like Glenn pushes the guy, the is more concerned with how tough he looked, playing to the crowd, then gets punched in the face. See how slowly he reacts to the punch? He reacted, just too late. I cheer the big guy on, but it's obvious Glenn would kick his a$$ in a real fight. Glenn is a martial artists, as was Steven Segal, and even he got laid out by some average Joe. If you watch the tape, the big guy throws a punch, then turns his back almost completely on Glenn. Had Glenn dodged that punch, he probably would have tore the man a new a$$hole.

Yea... I One of the guys that knows danny told me that Danzig was being a straight up prick that night. He told people that the bands that he played with that night were sh** and didn't deserve to share the stage with him... Danny Had driven 6 hours to Tuba City in order to play that show and Danzig was gonna cut them off.... Man, Danzig did get what he deserved. Bastard choked a 16 year old girl because she touched the cross around his neck... Must be Short man Syndrome.

Has anyone heard anything from Danzig about this incident? I wonder what he has to say about it, and if he will retaliate. I don't care what the video shows, I don't think Danzig expected him to punch and was caught pretty off guard. He was still laid out though, the shot was fair and clean, straight right pin-point perfect on the chin. That punch comin with 350 pounds of force behind it would lay just about anyone out. Anyway if they fought again I'd have to take Glenn's washed up balding ass, I think he would probably break Danny's neck after he got him on the ground.

i think that punch had well more then enough force to cut danzigs face . even small jabs can cut open an eybrow and danny threw his whole body into it . and he didnt go up there looking for a fight so he didnt have any weapon in his hand and i dont really think he would have enough time to put on brass within that short amount of time he got pushed and then punched him

Looks like Danny was just being rational in the discussion until Glenn decided to act like a stupid high school kid picking a fight and trying to look badass. Danny just ended that whole act pretty fast. I don't care if Glenn would have kicked his a$$ in a real fight, he's still a f***ing idiot and that video just proves it. Grow up and evolve you stupid gorilla.

I guess Mr. Danzig's unconscience state could be defined as
"THE BLACKEST OF THE BLACK"
However, I do hope this gets resolved sooner than later, another Tupac/Biggie type drama is so not good in any scene. I hope Glenn and Danny resolve this in time...

All good things come out of bad scenes. Apparently, Jerry Only contacted Glenn to offer some support, there is talk that maybe we may see a reunion show on Halloween after all. Good business move guys.....I can guarantee Glenn would have never gotten pounded with Doyle and Jerry in the mix. Thanks to Heath for the tip....

I am just wondering if anyone has realized that there is a very good reason that Glen Danzig chose not to fight back? While everyone bustles about him not coming out with a good release in eons, he also has credibility to a certain extent being that he has a very vivid musical past. If he were to have hit back, there would have been a lawsuit, guaranteed. People know the man has business and that his lawyers would go to great lengths to settle the suit...even if it meant paying somebody (danny) off and told not to speak about the event again. These types of things take place on a regular basis. I'm not a fan of either bands. Never have been, never will be. But I do appreciate good music and some good entertainment, regardless. All this fight is is entertainment. Think about it. The video is posted all over the web. If these guys in the North Side kings (?) aren't after publicity, they would have never released the video to begin with, or they will take it down. The guy is gloating and forever will be until the video is removed from the internet and disposed of. End of story. He can talk all he wants, but action speaks louder than words. Danzig deserved the punch. But he didn't react for very intelligent reasons. North Side Kings' deserved to punch Danzig. But they don't need to gloat about it on the internet. These sort of disputes make good talk among friends, but by publicizing it as much as they are, they will find themselves in legal trouble. They should have kept the video to themselves until his lawyers approach them. That's all I really have to say. Good luck to both sides of this argument. Adios.

and if some holier than thou a$$hole or his posse is going to start crying foul and saying there was a weapon involved I'd sure as hell drop a video on the web and show that worthless piece of sh** danzig getting every bit of what he deserved.

So...as a third party not picking any kind of side, I must say that when the video started, I didn't know who either person was until the end. Danzig got OWNED!!!

Yeah, I wonder about the Anonymous posting as well. Maybe someone just playing Devil's advocate... One doesn't need to make the leap in faith or logic and think Danzig had some legal/morale reasons not to fight back. He STARTED the violence and it didn't take long for the accusations that he was sucker punched or a sharp object was used. Being the lesser known band, North Side Kings did exactly what they could and should have done to silence Danzig's fan base which would otherwise have gone rabid on them - release a video that can not be argued with showing 1) Danzig being an a$$ and 2) Danzig getting what he deserved. If that's not clear enough to show the full context of what happened, the accusations (attempt at damage control?) leveled by Danzig's "camp" (associates, fans, whatever) should be.

Why would danzig just push danny like that in a conversation? he wasnt being confrontational and had every right to ask what was up.... i just drove 6 hours to (not even c***y) and glenn pushes him and says f*** you mother f***er? that was just dumb to say aswell as pushing him.like dumb as in come up with something better to say to get out of the situation like hold on a minute while i talk to my fans just give me a minute.
He cant take back what he said and did. it was really just poor judgement. danzig instagated it. i dont think that guy should have punched him just been like whatever your a d***...then whatever happens happens. I really dont think that was a jab either....that was a right hand that spun glen 360 degrees and danny 180....yeah

It's simple. Danzig is a PRICK, he started sh**, and got his a$$ handed to him in one clean shot. Bullsh** to anyone who says he's the tougher of the two. Until he proves it, he's just the sissy a$$ p***y he proved to be in the video. PERIOD. You see it all the time, these shriveled nutsack steroid junkies who act tough with everone, until someone calls them out. Most of them never learn to fight, because they never have too, people have always backed down. The real tough guys are usually the small scraps that are always having to defend themselves. Watching his punk a$$ in the video, I'd personally like to challenge Danzig to his next fight. Danzig, if you're reading, e-mail me you p***y. I'll finish what the last guy started. f*** you. Good job NSK.

Bottom line is that this chump instigated it. His whole image has been as a big tough guy for years and the first piece of tape is him getting dropped like a one night stand. Check out this webpage to see how tough he really thought he was. I wonder if he still feels the same.

I enjoy all Metal music, and I saw Danzig one time at a comic convention signing his books, I could tell that he thought he was hot S**t before I saw the knockout video and the rumors I've heard about him. Mr. Martial Arts expert started the fight, naturally he shoulda expected some form of retaliation. Have to give Glenn credit for trying to block the punch with his jaw and then knocked on his a$$ like a BIATCH. HA HA HA Maybe we'll get to see it on REAL TV
