Glenn Danzig Brings An End To The Misfits Reunion

Glenn Danzig has made it clear that people shouldn’t be looking for anything else from the Misfits reunion.

Danzig reunited with original Misfits member Jerry Only and long time guitarist Doyle Wolfgang Von Frankenstein, along with drummer Dave Lombardo, for two reunion shows at Riot Fest Denver and Riot Fest Chicago. After the first show, Only told Rolling Stone that he felt the reunion could go on past the pair of shows:

I want it to continue. I know Doyle wants it to continue. I know Glenn wants it to continue. We just have to be big enough people to make it continue. And that’s where we’re at. Whatever it takes. We’re going into our 40th anniversary so the timing couldn’t be more perfect. Eventually, Doyle’s got to write a new album; I’ve got to write a new album; Glenn’s got to write a new album. Why don’t we work together and make the greatest album ever?

That plan doesn’t seem to be part of Danzig’s priorities as he has told the New York Times “If there’s going to be another Misfits record, I’d probably have to write the stuff and I’ve got a full plate, so I don’t know.”

He also stated that he agreed to the reunion after seeing some of his contemporaries pass away. “I’ve seen a lot of musicians dying too young recently, like Bowie and Prince. That just got in my head. People had been trying to get us to reunite for a long time, anyway. I said that if we’re going to do it, we might as well do it now while we’re all in really good shape.”
