Welcome Back: Glenn Danzig
The Misfits man – who 'created punk' – returns with an homage to his heroes, and an Elvis tribute in the works.
Owner of one of the most distinctive voices in rock, Glenn Danzig has been making music for over 40 years, first with iconic New Jersey ‘horror punks’ Misfits, then doom-punk ‘supergroup’ Samhain and, since 1987, simply as Danzig.
Johnny Cash, Metallica, Roy Orbison and Guns N’Roses are among the artists who’ve covered his songs in the past, and now, on Skeletons – the tenth Danzig studio album – the 60-year-old singer is showing his own roots by tackling tracks from artists who’ve inspired him, from Elvis and Sabbath, to Aerosmith, The Everly Brothers and ZZ Top. “It’s not just intended to show where I’ve come from, it’s a celebration of music in general,” he promises.
