Dude Who Punched Danzig Working on Book, DevilDriver Ink New Record Deal + More News
Noisecreep readers surely remember the time Glenn Danzig got punched in the face by North Side Kings singer Danny Marianino. The incident happened backstage after a 2004 concert in Tuba City, Ariz. Marianino said that after the show was delayed, the former Misfits frontman cut the night short before North Side Kings got to perform. After some heated words, Danzig shoved Marianino who then punched him back, knocking him to the floor. Someone in North Side Kings caught the altercation on video (seen below) and it quickly became a viral sensation within the metal and punk worlds.
Just when we thought the North Side Kings vs. Danzig saga was over, Marianino has just announced that he's working on a book about the infamous night. Don't Ever Punch a Rock Star - A Collection Of Hate Mail & Other Crazy Rumors profiles "a regular guy's journey in music and learning to shrug off one of the most opinionated events in music history," according to a report on Blabbermouth. Head to the book's official Facebook page for more information. [Blabbermouth]
