The stuff he did in the Misfits gets him a lifetime pass. Sometimes people create exactly the right piece of art at exactly the right time in history. For that I believe they get a pass.
Especialy Earth A.D.
Getting rid of John Christ was the biggest mistake Glen ever made. 5 sounds like he tried to hop onto the NIN wagon after some kids stole the wheels because it was parked too long. I give bands I like a 1 record pass. If they lay two turds in row, I ain't got the time or the money.
Oh, and Sam Hain blows too except Archangel and maybe Human Pony Girl. I think the only reason Archangel is any good is because he wrote it while still in the Misfits for Vanian to sing (and he apparently stopped by and did so at some point). That and Initium is one of the best covers ever.
I didn't listen to 5. I thought 6 was o.k. What I have heard of 7 is good. I was never really a fan of the band Danzig. I liked the forst one. I alos never really lkied Samhain. I'm too much into the hardcore stuff from his Misfits days.
Danzig has a lifetime free pass with me. I don't care what dorky stuff he has done or how old or short he is. He is fucking Glen Danzig. He sang Death Comes Ripping. For that he gets to do or be whatever he wants. Rollins gets a lifetime pass as well.
Yeah Mike, try not to make fun of him when you're in the front row, he's snarling through "Death Had No Name" and giving you an evil stare, and yet all you can see is that trickle of sweat intermingled with hair dye leaving a black streak down the middle of his face.
