In a recent interview, The Misfits founder Jerry Only said that he would consider doing a reunion of the original lineup on condition that Glenn Danzig left all “that dark, that real black stuff at home” and focused on being a “positive influence” to Misfits’ fans. He states:
“The thing is, I have an obligation to our fans. A lot of our fans are young and the thing is, we’re a very positive organization. We may have a lot of scary shit, but we’re working out, we take care of mom, we’ve got jobs. It’s no bullshit. We work for what we’re doing. If we bring Glenn back in and he’s going to bring that dark, that real black stuff to the table, I don’t want that.
All the money in the world ain’t gonna make me sell out my fans. What I feel is that, I’d rather be where I am and be happy and be a positive influence than to be the richest man in the world and miserable and be a scumbag to the kids that follow us. I’m not doing that. I told Doyle that. I told him, ‘Hey look, if Glenn wants to come be a team player and leave that shit at home, we’re good.’ That’s the name of the game.”
Glenn Danzig was the original singer of the Misfits, and remained with the band until their original breakup in 1983. The Misfits have since reunited without him, and are currently planning a follow-up to their 2011 album The Devil’s Rain.
