I have a very bare understanding of the musical group Danzig.
In fact, I only knew they did the tune "Mother," which was one of those over-the-top hardcore rock tunes back a few years . . .
However, it appears that this incident in Arizona is making it around quite a few blocks of the internet.
Apparently, Danzig was to play with North Side Kings at a show in Tube City, AZ, on July 3rd.
Here is the link from Blistering.com (which took it from Blabbermouth.net):
For some reason, Danzig decided to go before many of the bands that showed up to play.
No one really has this information on a quick search with any kind of detail about the whys and the hows, but one thing I know without a doubt . . .
When you are the biggest group to play at a concert, you go after everyone else has played. The last spot is reserved for the biggest act.
This is common knowlege, and it applies to any genre of music in any concert. The member of the North Side Kings confronted the guy from Danzig about this. And then, this happened.
Already, the North Side Kings website has been shut down due to the massive traffic beyond the bandwith capability.
I was lucky enough to find a full video somewhere, but I'm left as an outsider with little true understanding.
I do realize from web research that Danzig played in the home state of North Side Kings . . . I also think that after Danzig was to leave early, they were going to take their equipment with them, thus making the rest of the show an anti-climax. North Side Kings were upset because they had made a 6 hour trip to play, only to have Danzig steal all the thunder by leaving early.
This could generate major interest in North Side Kings, but in light of the months-ago altercation between Jack White and Jason Stollsteimer (White Stripes vs. Von Bondies), what are the boundaries of acceptable publicity-boost?
If I ever see Britney Spears sell more albums because of a sudden slap-fight with Christina Aguilera, I'm not sure what to think.
This video reminds me more of early years of school, but for many, it's straight out of high school.
