How's it going my gumdrops? Because we have to celebrate my mother's birthday on Sunday, I will be sharing Song Saturday and Cartoon Sunday early. Her birthday was actually on April 26th.
Throughout April, there were SO MANY events simultaneously happening, that my mother's birthday celebration was delayed. Not that she cares too much.
Aside from my mother's birthday celebration, let's return to the Rock. Yes, I know some of you have been waiting for this. After browsing around this site, I realized that I only have 1 Song Saturday blog about Danzig. I was quite surprised.
Here is the previous blog featuring Danzig.
Danzig is another band I use to play on my radio show, 14-15 years ago. I don't recall of ever playing "Mother" simply because it was the most OVER played song by Danzig. At the time, I regularly played new songs from his I Luciferi album. Normally, I aired "Angel Blake" on WIPZ. Sometimes I played "Wicked Pussycat."
It is ridiculous that so many Rock stations never want to air other songs released by Danzig. It wouldn't surprise me if that was the main reason why Glenn Danzig would always be pissed off, during other interviews.
For years, the media ALWAYS depicted the man very negatively. Marilyn Manson has always been demonized in the media too, but at least Rock stations play more than 1 song by him.
Whether I am watching TV, listening to the radio station, or talking to someone on or offline, people always perceive Danzig as being this big, scary, angry Satanist.
Honestly, I feel the media launched a smear campaign against Glenn Danzig because he won't validate much less tolerate their bullshit and it threatens them. There is so much we DON'T know about Danzig, that someone would have to personally sit and interview him. However, I believe the media demonized him to the extent, that he automatically developed a bad reputation.
Some of you may recall that last May, I had the wonderful opportunity to interview White Zombie's former co-founder and bassist, Sean Yseult. It was quite an honor.
Too bad I never had the opportunity to interview Metal vocalists such as Type O Negative's Peter Steele and Glenn Danzig on my radio show. Despite what those critics say about Danzig, they will not give him a chance because they fear him.
I have watched this man in past interviews with some interviewers and he didn't try attacking any of them. Here is an interview Glenn Danzig did with Loudwire. In this interview, he mentioned that he wanted to quit touring after 2015.

The above interview with Loudwire was uploaded on October 22, 2015. Then, on October 30, 2015, Rolling Stone uploaded an interview with Glenn Danzig. In that interview, he explained about movies that still scare him.

If I would've interviewed Glenn Danzig 15 years ago, I don't believe we would've had any problems. Our interview probably would've gone swimmingly well. The fact that he is a Horror fan and has an appreciation for art AND Japanese animation (Anime), we probably would've had a fun time together.
Speaking of Glenn Danzig and Anime, he has a GREAT appreciation for the Mangaka, Kiyoshi Nagai. He is best known under the pen name, Go Nagai. Also, Danzig aspired to be a comic book artist, while growing up. He was frustrated with American comics years ago and wanted to create "crazy, violent, erotic comics."
As far as The Arts goes, Danzig is very well educated and has a lot versatility. (It is amazing what you can learn, when conducting research!) He's underrated for his talents and deserves more praise than being famous for the song, "Mother."
When it comes to Glenn Danzig's voice, I had the hardest time figuring out, who he sounds like for the last 2 decades. It dawned on me, recently.
As a quick side note, music journalist, Simon Reynolds considers Jim Morrison's sound as being Goth Rock. I always considered Morrison's songs to be pretty Goth too, when you really think about some of his lyrics.
Imagine Jim Morrison fronting Goth Rock and Horror-Punk bands and you have Glenn Danzig in a nutshell. In fact, he credits Morrison as being 1 of his early musical influences.
Today fellow Danzig fans are in for a treat. For this early Song Saturday blog, 7 songs by Danzig are being shared, which are from 7 of his 11 albums. I NEVER aired that many songs in a block by Danzig, when I WAS DJ'ing at WIPZ.
This block of songs is especially beneficial for all those, who have NEVER heard any song(s) by him except "Mother." (Make sure to click on the link for the 4th song.)
Before I forget, Danzig's new album, Black Laden Crown is set to release on May 26, 2017. Anyway, here is Danzig for today's early Song Saturday.
1) Danzig [Featuring Metallica's James Hetfield] "Possession" Danzig 
2) Danzig "Her Black Wings" Danzig II: Lucifuge (1990)
3) Danzig "How The Gods Kill" Danzig III: How The Gods Kill (1992)
5) Danzig "Deep" Danzig 5: Blackacidevil (1996); The X-Files Soundtrack (1996)
6) Danzig "Angel Blake" Danzig 777: I Luciferi (2002)
7) Danzig "Devil On Hwy 9" Black Laden Crown (2017)
