In honor of The Lost Tracks of Danzig being released, I decided I’d go and take pictures of Glenn Danzig’s house. Mostly the only pictures online of the house are not-so-great images of creepy goth kids standing in front. Anyway, I walk over and first off I see that Danzig’s black-as-night Jaguar XK8 is in the driveway, meaning he’s actually living there again, and then I notice that he’s seriously had the hedges trimmed, and worse yet: THE BRICKS ARE GONE.
Those bricks have been on Danzig’s front lawn since the Northridge earthquake! I remember reading about them in Spin in ’96!
So I ended up not taking any pictures, but I did bang around online and I found a few images of the bricks. They will be missed. It was reassuring thing to know that no matter how crappy your day, you always could head to Los Feliz and see Danzig’s big ol’ stupid pile of bricks. But alack, no more!
Shine on, you crazy diamond.
