Danzig on Danzig: Why He Hates Interviews, the Press, and You
By Jena Ardell
Fans of Danzig have learned difficult lessons in the past, like never film Danzig onstage and never punch Danzig in the face, but the best lessons are learned when Danzig talks about his beliefs. As much as Danzig is presumed to spread negativity, he also provides useful insight. We think Danzig sounds pretty enlightening in this quote he gave to jammagazine.com:
"You see, most people don't want the burden of knowledge. As the old saying goes, with knowledge comes responsibility. And that responsibility includes being held accountable for your actions. When you don't have to think about everything, you lead a simple life. You go off to work, then you come home, kiss your wife, eat dinner, watch TV, fall asleep, wake up in the morning and start your daily routine all over again. A lot of people really like that simplicity in their lives... For other people, they need to constantly quench their thirst for knowledge. They need to search out the truth, find the light to learn what life is really all about. There are searchers and there are those just happy to exist. I prefer the former."
