DANZIG Named 'Loser Of The Week' By The Arizona Republic

The following is an excerpt from Muck Raker's "Losers of the Week" column in the Arizona Republic:

"On July 3, Tuba City became the site where the name of the former lead singer of THE MISFITS was officially synonymous with mud. After bumping several opening bands in order to play his set two hours earlier, Danny Marianino, lead singer of Arizona hardcore band the NORTH SIDE KINGS, had a word with Danzig about this slight, which turned into a word and a knockdown punch.

"Fortunately for Loser watchers, cameras were rolling and video of the six-second bout spread like wildfire through metal Web rings. The video, which lasts all of 20 seconds, shows Danzig with his bald spot facing the camera listening calmly to Marianino before shoving Marianino and being felled like a sack of Satan-worshipping potatoes.

"Normally, this bit of news would just peter out in the ether but since Danzig is such a renowned jerk, everyone has come out of the woodwork to dis him. Everything from humiliating PhotoShop doctored photos of Danzig and cutting remarks from martial artists who studied the video frame-by-frame since Danzig has said in interviews he trained under Jeet Kune Do master Jerry Poteet. 'Maybe Danzig only trains to defend against groupies??' snickered one post while another wondered more philosophically whether it was the fat guy or Danzig's ego that knocked him to the floor. Just when it looked like this story was dying down, Danzig announced that this will be his last tour. Final score: Ego 2, Danzig 0."
