Tight black T-shirt. Straight black hair. Talons for fingernails. Pale, corpselike skin. Skull tattoo on pumped left bicep. Glenn Danzig relishes his image as hard rock's dark lord, even in the serene confines of Anarkali, his favorite Indian restaurant in Hollywood. Yet when the former Glenn Anzalone speaks, he sounds like the street-corner Jersey kid he once was. "This is a cool place, nice low lights," he says. "Maybe I'm mellowing in my old age." Danzig has never courted the mainstream, despite a major hit with the live version of his oedipal projectile "Mother" in 1993. But his impact is undeniable: My Chemical Romance and AFI might not exist if it weren't for his three ghoulish bands: punk pioneers the Misfits, the goth-metal Samhain, and the eponymous Danzig.
