Horror-punk icon Glenn Danzig joined Rob Zombie on stage last night (Friday, April 8) at the Roxy in West Hollywood, California to perform the classic song “Vampira” from Glenn‘s first band MISFITS. Video footage of his appearance can be seen below.
Danzig told Las Vegas Weekly about Zombie: “We’re old friends. I took WHITE ZOMBIE out on the ‘Danzig III’ tour, and WHITE ZOMBIE did some dates with DANZIG in New York, too. The people that put out MISFITS records — Caroline [Records] — also had Zombie on their label, and they said, ‘Can you put this band on the bill?’ That was my first exposure to WHITE ZOMBIE.”
Glenn released his long-awaited covers record, “Skeletons”, in November in North America via Nuclear Blast Entertainment/Evilive Music. A labor of love that dates back to 1979, “Skeletons” sees Danzig pulling back the curtain behind his influences with a collection of ten covers spanning artists as diverse as Elvis Presley, ZZ TOP, and AEROSMITH to BLACK SABBATH, THE TROGGS, THE EVERLY BROTHERS, and more.
Rob Zombie‘s new disc, “The Electric Warlock Acid Witch Satanic Orgy Celebration Dispenser”, arrives on April 29. The first single is “Well, Everybody’s Fucking In A UFO”.
