Jason Silverstein of the New York Daily News reports:

Singer Glenn Danzig butted heads, literally, with a fan at a Montreal show.

According to TMZ, the singer reportedly ordered his security to assault the fan — and then beat the man personally — because he refused to stop taking pictures at a the show Sunday night (October 18th).

According to TMZ, the singer allegedly ordered his security to assault the fan — and then beat the man personally — because he refused to stop taking pictures at the show Sunday night (October 18th).

This is reportedly second time in four months that Danzig has assaulted a fan for photographing him.

The alleged victim, Neil Dalton, wrote in a now deleted Facebook post that he spent $100 and traveled to Montreal to see the show, only to get an unexpected fright when Danzig spotted him snapping photos. Danzig reportedly stopped his show to call out Dalton for violating his famous no-photo policy — then had security remove the fan and beat him, Dalton said.

Security allowed Dalton back into the show, only to drag him out once again, and this time Danzig joined in the attack, Dalton said.

The furious fan uploaded a photo that might make Danzig himself uneasy, showing his bloodied and battered face. a href=”″ target=”_blank”>Click here to see the photo.

Montreal police confirmed it filed a report and is investigating but released no further details. Danzig’s rep did not return requests from the Daily News for a comment.

In July, a fan filmed himself confronting Danzig after a show for stealing a phone from the crowd. Danzig abruptly put him in a headlock and pulled him into a bus — a beating another fan caught on camera.

On the upside, his beatings are a nice change of pace from the infamous video of a fellow rocker knocking him out cold in a backstage brawl.

The New Jersey native, whose real name is Glenn Anzalone, is now touring North America, and photos apparently aren’t his only gripe — he swears he’s ready to stop touring altogether.

“I think this is going to be it,” he told Loudwire after his Wednesday (October 21st) show in New York City.

“I’ll do some shows here or there, but I don’t think I’m going to tour anymore.”

In other Danzig news, the singer will be releasing a covers album called, Skeletons, on November 27th. Danzig will be covering songs by artists such as Black Sabbath, Aerosmith, Elvis Presley, ZZ Top, as well as others. To read all about this impending release, please go here.

    Saw Ghost on Oct 21 in Portland, great show, and they were letting anyone who wanted to photograph, as long as you didn’t block somebody else’s view. They understand with the young generation of hard rock/heavy metal fans that the IPhones, the digital downloads, the whole tech thing is here to stay, and you might as well run with it. Sell-out crowd of 1410. Many fans knew words to songs.

    I respectfully submit that Ghost should go on TMS radar. They’re fresh, but very classically inspired. BTW, Ghost will be musical guest on Late Night with Stephen Colbert on Oct. 30.

      100% agree. Meliora is probably the best, and strongest album this year. I’ve been playing it constantly since I picked it up.

      It’s weird to see them kind of ignored here on Eddie’s site. Classic metal/hard rock riffs, progressive, and melodic, and evil at the same time. One of my favorite new bands of the last 5 years, easily. I get that it’s more about the “classic” rock/metal, but some of these older bands are just as interesting anymore, especially since they all play it safe and play and write the same exact songs over and over again.

    Danzig suffers from a classic case of little mans disease/Napoleon complex. Wonder how tough the little muppet would be without security to soften people up for his 5 foot 2 inch ass?
