GLENN DANZIG Is 'Open To Possibly Doing Some More Shows' With MISFITS

Glenn Danzig says that he is open to performing with the MISFITS again after completing a two-show reunion run last fall.

After years of bad blood, Glenn reunited with bassist Jerry Only and guitarist Doyle Wolfgang Von Frankenstein for concerts at both incarnations of Riot Fest in Denver and Chicago. Prior to those gigs, the trio last performed together on October 29, 1983.

Speaking to Rolling Stone about how the Riot Fest shows went, Danzig said: "I'd done it with Doyle before, but it was ... interesting. [Laughs] I couldn't hear myself, so it was exactly like the old days. So it is what it is. But everyone seemed to have a great time. I think it exceeded expectations, which is always good, and the write-ups were just insane."

Asked if the door is now closed on the reunion or if he would consider playing more concerts with the MISFITS, Glenn said: "We'll see. I'm open to possibly doing some more shows. I don't want to tour, but if it happens and everything lines up properly, I would imagine there'd probably be a couple more shows. I don't know when, but I'll keep an open mind."

Joining Glenn, Jerry and Doyle at the Riot Fest shows was drummer Dave Lombardo (SLAYER, SUICIDAL TENDENCIES) and second guitarist Acey Slade.

Only told Rolling Stone last September that he wanted the MISFITS reunion to continue. "I know Doyle wants it to continue. I know Glenn wants it to continue," he said. "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 fortieth anniversary, so the timing couldn't be more perfect."

The original MISFITS band broke up in 1983, and Only brought forth a new version of the MISFITS in 1995. Various members have come and gone, but Only, along with BLACK FLAG's Dez Cadena, has kept some form of the MISFITS in the recording studio and on the road for most of the last two decades.
