Danzig Allegedly Punches Photographer at Montreal Show

Glenn Danzig might not like photographers.

Multiple accounts suggest that Danzig repeatedly warned fans to stop taking photographs, saying that he was “not going into your house to video you.” Later, one person said, the two did have direct contact.

“Right after the show ended, Glenn came running out and engaged Neil and threw a kick to Neil’s ribs, and connected,” the source wrote. “He also swung a couple punches that missed before security got Glenn on his bus. Glenn kept calling Neil a motherfucker.”
