Glenn Danzig recently spoke to the Boston Herald about his upcoming three East Coast dates during which Danzig will reunite with former MISFITS compadre Doyle Wolfgang Von Frankenstein for a 30-minute set. The pair played two West Coast dates last year, which marked their first time onstage together in 20 years.

"Doyle's a really nice guy. I've always had a good time with him," Danzig told the Boston Herald. "When we started rehearsing (MISFITS songs), it was definitely a trip back."

In the midst of a two-month theater and club tour, Danzig said the recent onstage murder of former PANTERA guitarist "Dimebag" Darrell Abbott prompted him to take extra security precautions. Abbott, who had toured on bills with DANZIG, was gunned down with three others, allegedly by a deranged fan.

"Something like this happens, and it's a wake-up call," he said. "I think it was (expletive) that this guy was even allowed to get into the venue with a gun. It's sad."

Despite being at the forefront of the underground "black metal" movement for 20 years, Glenn Danzig insists he's no devil worshiper.

"I don't worship Satan. You know who I worship? Me," the brash 49-year-old said. "I don't buy into any of that religion crap. All the religions just want to discount each other. It becomes a business."
