Watch Classic Misfits Lineup Perform First Show Since 1983 With Ex-Slayer Drummer Dave Lombardo At Denver Riot Fest

Below you can watch the classic Misfits lineup of singer Glenn Danzig (61), bassist Jerry Only (57) and guitarist Doyle Wolfgang Von Frankenstein (51) perform the track “Bullet”, during their first show together since 1983 at the “Denver Riot Fest” past Sunday, September 4th, 2016. They were joined by ex-Slayer drummer Dave Lombardo and Joan Jett guitarist Acey Slade.

Said Danzig at one point during the show addressing the crowd: “About 40 years ago, Jerry and I got onstage in New York and we shocked the whole fucking punk scene who didn’t know what the fuck to make of us. We didn’t look like anybody. We didn’t sound like anybody. We were angry, pissed-off and we dressed all in fucking black and we were always getting into fights and shitloads of fucking trouble every night. That’s pretty much what punk was back then, getting fucked up and fucking people up. At least in New York City, it was.”

Pit Stories: The Venue Isn’t Quite What Was Expected

Ready for some more Pit Stories chronicling the ups and downs of life in a metal band? Today we have a tale from Norwegian hard rock band The Carburetors (featuring former Chrome Division member Eddie Guz) about the expectation of playing a huge venue only to realize as you arrive it’s a single room bar with no space for your equipment!

On the first Carburetors tour out of Norway back in 2001, we tour Spain and we did two shows in Madrid. The first night we played a small club called the honky-tonk. As we arrived on the club the first thing that hit us was that the drum kit was a junior edition (in other words very small). The guitar amps I think was called Smervod and god knows where they where from…

Anyway the gig went well pretty cool crowded. The next day we where going to play the Rock Palace in Madrid. I remember picturing it as this great big venue…. when we arrived it struck me that the club was a tiny bar but I still had my hope up so I asked the promoter “alright cool is the stage in the next room?” He answer me harsh “NO THERE IS ONLY ONE ROOM…”

Ok, I still had my spirit up and asked are we gonna put up a stage along side the wall? His answer was short: “NO YOU STAND ON THE FLOOR IN THE CORNER BOTH GLUECIFER AND TURBONEGRO HAVE DONE THE SAME.” He he. We did the show but Kai Kidd set the roof on fire when fire-breathing during the show, Chris broke two sets of drums and Eddie blew out both of his monitors but it was a cool gig.

For those readers who are in a band, let us know your best story of arriving at a venue and discovering things weren’t quite as you expected in the comments below!

The Carburetors’ new album “Laughing In The Face Of Death” is out now via SPV/Steamhammer. Check out a video below taken off the album and featuring Shagrath from Dimmu Borgir.
