Denver has all the luck….
By Barbi Martinez
They said it would never happen: a Misfits reunion. Or at least one involving both classic-er ‘fits vocalist Glenn Danzig and bassist Jerry Only. The latter was awarded, via a lawsuit in the ’90s, the right to use the name, and it would be an understatement to say that there has been considerable friction between the two. It’s been over 30 years since they played together.
Never say never: they did indeed reunite, if only for a day, to play the Denver Riot Fest this past weekend. We’ll have a wrapup of the festival here at Blurt soon, courtesy our man in the Mile High City, Tim Hinely. Meanwhile, here are some video clips that have already surfaced of the Misfits’ performance; hopefully some higher quality ones will turn up soon. (By the way: listen to some of the “comments” made during the first clip below.)
