Every once in a while the punk rock geniuses here at Dying Scene like to unleash some punk rock trivia to enlighten and enhance the minds of you, the readers. Today’s trivia is about some connection between Dave Grohl and Glenn Danzig, who apparently asked him to join his post-Misfits and Samhain band Danzig.
Most of us know Dave Grohl as the drummer or singer and guitarist for many well-known bands such as Nirvana, Foo Fighers, Queens of the Stone Age, Probot and Them Crooked Vultures. Not only that but apparently he was asked to join Glenn Danzig’s post-Misfits and Samhain band Danzig. Here’s what happened: a special issue of Kerrang! magazine from 1994 said that Dave was asked but turned down the offer to join Danzig as replacement for Chuck Biscuits, who would eventually join Social Distortion. Coincidentally, Chuck’s replacement Joey Castillo would eventually join Queens of the Stone Age, which once featured Dave on drums.
Would you imagine seeing Mr. Grohl in a band about satanism and stuff like that and there would never be Foo Fighters? Yeah, that would be odd, but it’s good that he and Glenn had a nice friendship back in the day.Add Danzig to My Radar
