I just found out that Danzig is from Lodi, New Jersey, which is the next town over from where my mother grew up. Who knows, maybe she beat him up in high school* and that’s why he turned to satan and comic books.
I never really listened to the Misfits until my wife came into my life. I see now that Cough/Cool is the song that inspired Joy Division’s entire sound. I really like them. To me, Danzig is a heavy metal gnome and I love him now. I would never fight him now; it would be like fighting a hockey puck. I bet he fights like the Tasmanian Devil. I bet that’s also how he makes love. I think his massive density is one of the reasons that his music is so high on the periodic table. I think he is made of adamantium and unobtanium and there is no better person to carry the torch of Satan’s rock for sixty years.
*My mom is short, but Danzig is shorter. When I pointed out to Gewel that Danzig was from the same place as all my shortest relatives, she said, “I wonder if there’s something in the water up there that makes people short.” She might be right.
