Danzig, Skeletons, Purple and White Swirl with Black Splatter Vinyl, Nuclear Blast, 2022
Danzig Skeletons in a limited edition of 750 purple and white swirl with black splatter colored vinyl.
With the exception of ZZ Top’s 1986 single “Rough Boy”, all of the songs covered on Skeletons date to between 1962 and 1974, when Glenn was between the ages of six and eighteen. The album’s title refers to “‘skeletons in your closet’, it’s like pulling out old songs”, he said. “These are my skeletons. You may or may not know that I dig these songs. You could say that some of this music is the actual basis and skeleton of what I listened to growing up — ultimately informing the kind of music I like. It’s the foundation. If you took Elvis and [Black] Sabbath out of my life, I probably wouldn’t be the Glenn Danzig you know! I’m glad both sides are represented on this record.”
