Glenn Danzig Attempts To Confront Photographer At “Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival”

Glenn Danzig interrupted his Danzig Legacy set at this weekends “Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival” to confront a photographer violating the the no filming, etc. rules. You can find footage of his attempted confrontation below, while the photographers publication, Nashvillescene.com, provided the following:

“As a personal rule, I tend to speak unfavorably about Bonnaroo bands who don’t allow media into the press pit. After all, it is the press pit. But hey, sometimes, for whatever reason, your services are not needed. For Danzig Legacy, we let that slide, considering they at least let us in the sweet spot. The muscle-bound godfather of horror-core strictly forbade celluloid of any sort. No photo, no video, and some would-be photogs seen snapping a shot were sometimes squirted with water guns by security.

In fact, Glenn himself took issue with one photog in particular. The shutterbug in question our own Michael W. Bunch, who was photographing some people in the crowd dancing. Mid-song, Danzig ran to the side the of the stage pointing and screaming before approaching security and then proceeded to run all the way past the side stage, almost into the crowd to “walk among us.” As you can see from the exclusive footage above, security soon slowed his roll, and Danzig returned to stage after a matter of minutes. (More on the performance in Lance’s post.) Bunch told us that he was certain “Danzig was going to kick [his] ass.” Awesome.”

        Twat was also the first word that came to mind when I watched this. Then I realized that the blogger kept referring to photographers as “photogs,” and now I’m not sure who the bigger twat is.

      oh Glenn… you silly, silly goose – glad to hear Bunch was unharmed, I am sure he had quite the scare! I wish ‘Ole Zig would react in that fashion when he spots a Misfits t-shirt on a common poser…

    • Musically, I’ll always be a HUGE fan of Danzig. But as far as Glenn himself, he’s nothing more than an old, bitter-towards-everything has-been. Why anyone is intimidated by that fuck is beyond me. Shouting and being loud isn’t threatening, sir, your jiggly, fat arms are.

      I respect this dudes past, Er a, “Legacy” as he likes to put it, But between getting knocked out by that wet noodle of a punch a few years ago, The whole French Onion Soup incident and now this, I think we can all agree, Danzig is a little bitch…Or at the very least, A crotchety old man.

      Pack it in, Gramps.

    • I was never really into the Misfits, Samhain, or Danzig’s solo stuff (though I did love Mother, who didn’t right?) but could understand and respect his contributions and influence to bands that I like, but this dude is a joke.

      Is this guy ever going to grow the fuck up? The only headlines involving him are about his acting like Naomi Campbell. It’s 2012, it’s Bonaroo, who gives a shit if someone was taking pictures. Dude should be glad someone still gives a shit enough to waste of few MB of memory card space on his prima donna ass.
