I was 15yrs old when an older lad off my street played me ‘Evil Live’ by US punks / underground legends The Misfits – and I was gripped by it straight away, rock ‘n’ roll never sounded so raw, energized, and menacing. But it was the vocals of Glenn Danzig which really made them special, sounding something like speed fueled Elvis tunes. Tracks like ‘Hybrid Moments’ or ‘Teenagers from Mars’ are bona-fide classic rock’n’roll numbers.
Yet despite all this I, like many fans of The Misfits and more specifically Glenn Danzig, accept that even though blessed with the talent he has, it’s a known fact he’s ‘hard work’ – to say the least…and it’s in this short film footage that we get to witness his one-on-one people-management skills on Danny Marianino of ‘North Side Kings’, who, it’s safe to say, wasn’t that much impressed with em.
