I was recently told I had a Glenn Danzig vibe in a photo. Knowing his height compared to my own I’m sorely disappointed

He looks taller than Big G

I wouldn't have guessed Danzig as tall as 5ft 6 and 3/4's!

I have to lol at the Danzig fan boys from years past and dont get me wrong Im a fan I just know that he is 5'3 to 5'4 range guy that is always wearing shoes with big soles. And he doesnt weigh anywhere near 180 lbs thats stupid I don't care how muscular he is.

You don't know what you're talking about. You probably weigh 146 pounds soaking wet. He was was huge when he HAD muscle. Click Here He's easily in his 190's today. He hasn't carried any muscle for many years. His waistline has expanded a lot since in the last 20 years. Click Here And "fan boys"? What are you, 14 years old?

He could have been wolverine lol
Elaina said on 22/Apr/18
Saw him ten or so years ago, he was in high heel boots and was not much taller than me, I am 5"3' he did have really big arms though and looked like he worked out, not so much now but he is close to 70 I think so he must have been middle-aged when I saw him-so good for him.
misfit said on 22/Feb/18
Since google has him at 5’3, Can you downgrade him to 5’3 or 5’3.5? It just makes sense to me. He was billed at 5’3 online almost forever. I don’t think he can be 5’4.
Powerhouse said on 8/Sep/17
Just wanted to post that I was definitely incorrect in my 5'5.75-5'6 guess for Danzig, I have seen picture evidence that assures me 5'4 is the tallest he can be. This listing was and is correct.
H8U said on 8/Jul/17
Im guessing when he was really big snd muscular, he may have been 180-185.
Frank R said on 12/Mar/17
On numerous websites, Glenn Danzig's height is listed as 5'3". I've also met several people who claim that he's 5'3" at the tallest. If Danzig was 5'3" at his peak, then he's probably shorter now.
TapeWormMeasure said on 19/Jun/16
Wow that's a real shocker. I always thought he was at least 5'8-5'9
DebK said on 24/May/16
My niece is 5'7". She met him once and hugged him. She says she was surprised at how small he actually is. He was much shorter than her and very thin, almost frail.
mudhoney said on 13/Sep/15
it's funny just because i'm tall 6'4 people assume i can play basket ball and i cant. i think when short men lift weights they look shorter carrying the weight. they look cooler thin and cut up like iggy pop i think prince may be smaller than glenn prince wheres heel shoes
Powerhouse said on 14/Aug/15
Yeah if he is 5'4 he would look very short, I haven't seen any picture or video evidence that would lead me to believe he is anything less than 5'6.
Fray said on 6/Aug/15
This needs an upgrade. Yes, he is shorter than average, but he is not 5'4". Without shoes he hits 5'6".
As for weight, he DID hit over 180. He was a big-framed guy. Maybe because of his width people may think he's shorter.
shaunfiveten said on 17/Aug/14
5'6" WITH his gianormous rockstar boots on, 5ft 4in flat.
Ex-Masshole said on 15/Aug/14
5'6" to 5'6.5" not 5'4" good friend was trader of rare memorabilia with I met him a few times at his NJ home. Genius who ruined himself with a California style ego high on his own press hype.
Tsadi said on 27/Jun/14
Glenn Danzig has the same proportions as does Rey Mysterio in most pictures, and that's not even at his most muscular, and is maybe a few inches taller.
Bernardo said on 14/Mar/14
He might just be 5'6, considering he uses thick boots most of the time. So yeah it's pretty accurate
thick one said on 3/Sep/13
im 5,4 and weigh 180 with a 3o inch waist and 17 inch biceps i have met him we are almost exactly the same size i think my shoulders are wider though
Powerhouse said on 22/Jul/13
There is no way he is 5'4. He is about 5'5.75 or 5'6
JohnBoy said on 2/Jun/13
are you serious? He most definitely was a "big framed guy"... just look at him!
misfitgirl said on 26/Mar/13
Met him backstage he was about my height ..I'm 5 ' 7 but I was wearing chucks and he had on boots.he was very nice to me and my daughters and he has been great every time I have seen him. Cant imagine him ever weighing over 200lbs he is not a big framed guy...has the most adorable smile though...
De said on 4/Feb/13
Stood next to him at a toys r us in Paramus NJ while we were looking at Godzilla toys. Im 5` 10" and he was quite shorter than me. Also, he was wearing platform boots and I had sneakers. My guess...5` 4" 170 lbs.
Bobo said on 22/Nov/12
I'd put him at 5 ft 5 bare foot and 5 ft 7 with the big boots.
Drew said on 10/Oct/12
I saw a concert of him in June 2011 and he really sucked, people threw bottles to him and he argued with the public. After a while he left the stage because of that. Anyway, i did not think he was that short...

Danzig was never close to 200lbs, let alone 215-220 as some people are saying. If you are 5'3" or 5'4" then even if you're a super big/buff body builder, you still aren't close to 200lbs.

If you're LEAN muslce, Bozo. He got thick muscles AND he carried a lot of fat as well and got up to 210-220 in the 80's or 90's at one point.

hes about 1 cm taller than me lol :)
it's a little hard being a shortie (especially if you're a guy..) but i don't care over here not many people care about that because theres alot of short people..
spike said on 24/May/11
I met Danzig a few times working clubs. When he's in "character" he's about 5'8", because he wears huge boots. I talked to him at soundcheck when he had his tennis shoes on and he's 5' 3" at best. His fans think of him as a huge warrior, but in real life he's only a very short little Ewok. lol
Danimal said on 22/Apr/11
5'4"-5'5" guy... In his misfits days he was very thin. He began lifting weights in the mid 80's in Samhain. By 1988 he was buffed and by 1990 he was cut. He maintained a very lean and muscular build (due to jujitsu) until the mid/late 90's (probably weighed 190-195 pounds)... After that he gained A LOT of weight.. I'd say he went up to maybe 245 pounds at his heaviest (2007)... Looks to have leaned down since to 215 pounds these days...
Clay said on 27/Mar/11
Obviously by ''buffed'' I didn't mean jacked up and ripped like a bodybuilder, hahaha. Of course he was a little tubby as well - but he got up to 220.
sprint84 said on 8/Feb/11
Clay says on 9/Dec/10
He was actually a buffed 215-220 ibs at his highest. Maybe more.

Ridiculous. Here's a 5'5" bodybuilder who competes at 200 and walks around under 220.

Click Here

The heaviest an in-shape Danzig could ever have been is maybe 170-175 lbs. Fat Danzig could be pushing 200, though.

If you think Danzig was 120 pounds Brad, it must have been in his misfits days.
Stephanie said on 3/Nov/10
I got a chance to give him a hug on Oct 30th in Houston for the Blackest of the Black Tour...OMG he's so hot! I'm 5'3 so he was perfect. He was a little taller than me which was perfect cause if we ever got together it wouldn't be awkward.. Lol! I'm his biggest fan and it was awesome cause his bodyguards didn't allow anyone else to get close to him but he reached out to hug me when I asked politely. It was the most righteous moment of my life! m/ :)

I always thought danzig was like 6'5" from the videos, but on his myspace he listed 5'5". I always thought he was tough because he looked ripped. but at that height with such a compact frame, how hard is it really to get ripped with that kind of leverage. that punch that took him down on youtube looked really weak. For such a tough guy mentally he should just give up the shtick.
I mean, 5'5" who is he fooling. Evil ain't so tough when you're small.
Look at Satan... he's just a worm. give it up glen, walk with the Almighty... not the defeated one. it has you on the wrong path....i used to be a fan until i saw the pretense. whatta joke."

You think there's a real satan! (Wipes a tear...) Assigning Physical sizes to IDEAS!!! And I thought someone like you'd have to be enlightened enough to look beyond appearance...You gave up on a person you admired because of their physical features!...And now you're talking about what's tough...MAN... Thanks for the laugh.

Evil will always be tough, and Glenn Danzig will always be a giant.
Skullywag said on 18/Apr/09
If he says he's 5'5"...really means he's around 5'2" - 5'3"...
Saw him at Ozzfest supporting Blackacidevil. I knew he was short, but was genuinly shocked to see HOW SHORT he really was. He had a box he would stand on to sing at diff points in the show, and was always "hunkering down" and swaying his arms....he looked like a little chimp. I never laughed so hard in my life, I ended up spraying beer when he first came out. Was truley hilarious. I never really got his "Ooooo look at me, I'm soooo evil" shtick.

I've been reading all this stuff, how does anyone figure that he hates women? I don't get that. Lyrics are just that...lyrics. People shouldn't assume anything from that.

That is so funny. Reading all these comments and there is an advertisment for Bugarris Shoes "up to 4" taller". Try to rock those baby. You'll be doin the Pee Wee Herman for sure. TEQUILA - All jokes aside I have found through countless hours of experimentation and discovery that shorter guys seem to be more well endowed. I'm just sayin'......
K. Anzalone said on 12/Mar/09
scheizertkopf- this guys comments are right on. I'm Glenn oldest nephew and love the fact that so called fans are ragging on his height. What's his height have to do with the music he's written for himself as well as many other well accomplished musicians. Newer bands cover his songs, magazines call him the godfather of punk for the eastcoast. Get real people. Glenn is short 5'4"-5'5" and for the record has never juiced. I also get big and ripped fairly quick when serious about working out. His nose was worked on due to being broken so many times from punk show back in the 80's causing a sever septum issue. If anyone has questions or want true facts hit me up. Oh and about that fat ass that knocked him down. Anyone else think that confortation was a bit set up. If you've ever been @ any of my uncles shows you'll know that cameras and vid are not allow and if a band member ever did have one you never see any on the net unless its in a preset location for fans or out by the tour bus. Just thought it was weird that the confortation was only filmed and the knock down but nothing after. whatever!
Randy said on 18/Feb/09
I've known people who have a Napoleon complex and it sounds like Danzig has an advanced case. Sadly,if you're cool most people are cool right back.No need to cop a 'tude just because you're short. I suspect it came from excessive harassment growing up in NJ. Let it go,Glenn. btw, Angus Young is also way down there, about 5'3". He's 10ft tall in my eyes.
Carlie said on 2/Feb/09
I met him in Georgia on this latest blackest of the black 2008....He came out after we all met everyone else....I'm almost 5'4 but he was still A LOT bigger than me....We made photos and hung out... WOO!

Josh - You can see Danzig being beaten up by a bouncer on YouTube. Just type in 'Danzig knocked out'. The beating from Viv Campbell was, sadly for us, not filmed. :)

First of all kid, it's NOT a bouncer. It is a LEAD SINGER of a band who Danzig was gracious enough to have on tour with him. Get your facts straight.
Danimal said on 12/Nov/08
Just saw Danzig on the Blackest of the Black tour here in Montreal. WOW, for 52 years old that man is in seriously good shape and his pipes are better than they've been since 1995.
scheizertkopf said on 12/Nov/08
to say danzig is a wimp or a girl is ridiculous - the man has punched more peoples heads than most of us could hope to in 10 lifetimes - i suggest the uninformed armchair pugilists investigate some old samhain videos and watch some crowd control techniques by a born thug genius at work in his prime - or have a look at this video of him from youtube doing some bruce lee **** (admittedly his kicks arent exactly textbook) from early danzig days

Click Here

we should be thankful for mr danzig he has made a lot of good music and influenced a lot of good bands - if you don't like his music don't listen to it - if you wanna see people getting knocked down by fat useless nobodies watch an episode of cops

Danzig's always gettin knocked out by bigger security guards it seems.

I'm sure Danzig is LESS than 5'4", believe it or not. I saw him getting punched by a bouncer once, in a club (Misfits days), and he left the building with a black eye. That eye was about level with my chest, and I'm just 5'11"!
Anon2008 said on 30/Apr/08
Yeah Rollins can easily be 190-195 pounds with muscle. I am muscular and am 190 pounds and 5-9.5 tall. Not only has to do with the height though, also the frame. I have a large frame.

Danzig owns. He always has...who cares?

Jon Doe, you're right about people saying how tall they are. I'm 5'8" and I know guys my height who give the range answer "i'm 5-9 5-10ish" to which I say really cause you're the same height as me adn I'm only 5-8 and they say "you must be taller." weird. height doesn't matter really, and I don't know why people think that short people have to compensate by being in the best shape. i stay in good shape and if i was taller i would do the same thing, it's health. if you live your live to impress people you'll never be happy.
kano said on 23/Jan/08
Just to prove my previous statement:

Prof. Jigoro Kano - The founder of Judo. 12th dan (post mortem). Height: 5`4.
Mitsuyo Maeda - expert judoka (practitioner of judo), considered the founder of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. Height: 5`4.
Valentin Yordanov (Bulgaria)- former freestyle wrestler, 15 gold medals: 7 times World Champion, 7 times Champion of Europe, 1 time Olympic Games Champion. Considered one of the most accomplished freestyle wrestlers of the 20th century. Height 5.2

P.S. It`s personality that matters. I couldn`t care less if Danzig was 6 feet. His voice is one of the best in rock, so his height is not important.
glenn said on 11/Jan/08
gee he isnt wearing big boots.
kano said on 10/Jan/08
Jon Doe: "Yeah sure working out is a way of compensating being short but doesn't it sorta make sense since the entite stigma with being small is (small =weak and big = strong)? "
False. Shorter stature is much more valuable in combat sports which require not only strength but also balance such as judo and free-style wrestling. With longer legs you can easy get out of balance.

I've met Glenn several times, and rest assured, he's 5'3".
I stand 6'3", and he refused to take a photo with me if I was standing next to him.
For comparison, Jerry Only is about 6'1", give or take an inch or so.
Doyle's about the same.
Bobby Steele is about 5'6".
Jon Doe said on 20/Nov/07
Some people don't even know their own hieght,there's a 5'5 guy who said he was 5'7,and i know a 5'7 guy who think's he's "almost 6 feet" lol,and he thinks i'm 5'1 or 5'2 lol,i'm 5'4.And there's a girl who said she was
5'9 but she's actually just 5'7.I heard a 5'3 guy say he was 5'4 and he's definetly an inche shorter than I am.I can't help but laugh at their exaggerations though because there's people that are the exact same height as eachother and are way off with their preceptions.

Well, actually, I'd say that his Napoleonic Complex is cause of the beating at school. He was short, with a kinda big nose and weird (he liked comics and stuff...). Kids are cruel.

Yeah Danzig is 5'8 Ana, with 3.5 inches worth of lift in his footwear.
glenn said on 28/Sep/07
i guess im 6ft.
Ana said on 27/Sep/07
I'm a female fan of Danzig's. I'm 5'10 without heels. He's definitely 5'8. We took a picture together than was in Metal Edge (around 98). He was more muscular in the 90's and even in 2002. He has a barrel chest and appeared even more muscular in photos. His arms were huge, triceps like slabs of beef, LOL!

Now he is older, he's lost some muscle mass. Give Glenn credit, for 53 he looks better than the average 53 yr old.

Every hardcore fitness magazines always have articles on him and his body.

He's a great musician, no doubt about it. He's on tour next month and I'll be there.
Rummerman said on 1/Sep/07
Hey, Danzig also got popped on the nose by a pastor. He was rude to the guy's wife, and the minister punched him onto his tour bus. The dude was, like, 6ft tall, mind you. And, as Kat says, that's almost a foot in difference. Danzig - rock's greatest wimp.
Kat said on 4/Aug/07
I've seen Danzig several times in 2002 during concerts and met him also backstage.. I knew that he's short but I was surprised how short he really is..he wore extra-high heavy boots but still he was ..tiny..well I'm pretty sure his height is not more than 160cm..another strange thing was that he was not massy at all! one could see that he's doin some workout but there were no real muscles and everything..BUT on pictures of that time he looked like a real beef...must be a camera effect..really weird :)
Middle-sized Cat said on 31/Jul/07
D.Ray Morton - Yep, apparently it's true. Collen himself is quite 'compact' (nice way of saying he's not very tall), but he took on Danzig and won. One imagines Danzig's set later must've lacked a certain amount of convincing aggression as a result! Leppard's probably rocked harder.
D. Ray Morton said on 27/Jul/07

And just because he's short no matter what he does or gets angry at he has a "Neapolean Complex" and what he's really getting angry at his the fact that he's short lol, and taller people don't have bad days when they're snocking their heads off of the doorways while they're getting inside of buildings or getting crouched up inside of seats on buses,airplaines,and train rides ect.Yeah sure working out is a way of compensating being short but doesn't it sorta make sense since the entite stigma with being small is (small =weak and big = strong)?
Middle-sized cat said on 17/Jun/07
Don't know about his nose pre-'93, but it definitely looked bent after Viv Campbell swung one on him! And they say that he's been unable to sing at all since the incident with that fat singer's fist.

Whatever. The man's a fool with a Napoleon fix.
Danimal said on 15/Jun/07
The man had nose surgery when he got involved with Rick Rubin in 1987. He was skinny, weak and had a large nose when in the Misfits. Enter Danzig, he was VERY built, tough and an overall more controlled appearance, however, I have seen interviews where he told the female reporter that if she asked him if he was the devil he would have clobbed her in the head and that it may not hurt at first, but after a few hits she would feel it and he also has gone on to say that he would love to amass an army and kill the whole world. Him and Henry Rollins had A LOT in common in the 1980's.
jay said on 15/Jun/07
In Misfits group photos, you can tell hes a good 4-5 inches shorter than the other members. Doesn't matter, Danzig is an incredibly talented musician, and plus he's built as hell. And I got to say, he was pretty attractive back in Misfit years. Misogynistic? I don't think so. Lot's of Misfits and Danzig songs were written after B horror movies... not through open hatred of women. Anyways, what does this have to do with his height?
Middle-sized cat said on 13/Jun/07
Er, songs about dismembering 13-year-old girls are probably WORSE than misogynistic. And hitting girls is punishable by good violence. That guy was asking for a beating. Being short is no excuse, either. Look at gentlemanly Ronnie Corbett!
demon said on 9/Jun/07
"Why does anyone have to write misogynistic lyrics?"...he doesn't, name one song he's written that is misogynistic.
Middle-sized cat said on 14/May/07
Very eloquently put, Anon. Danzig's height, or lack of same, has led to a classic form of the Napoleon Complex. Why does anyone have to write misogynistic lyrics? They're not big, not interesting, and not intelligent. He hates women, and has violent fantasies - so far, so sad. But he seems to take his hatred too far, and hence gets beaten up by men regularly. He then gets depressed, and disappears. Er, notice a pattern, Danzig? No? Too stupid and arrogant? Just pitiful.

He seems short, but if he was cool no one would care. I think his lack of height definitely gave him a complex from the beginning. I don't think he would be as angry, stupid, or sad if he was of normal height. All the over-emphisis on dominant masculinity and contrived sexuality seems to compensate for something. Every time he's brought to my attention (which is often) I just think, "Aw, he just needs a hug." All these punk/metal guys that try so hard to be scary must be so frightened themselves.

Well. As a guy I am only 5`7 and got no problems with the chicks. I experienced that women SAY they like tall guys, but it goes out the window once you convince them with self confidence, personality. What women hates is men with low self esteem and it ruins pretty much everything.

I know a guy at freaking 5`5 and he got no problems with women. and why? he does not bother being short. Being short does not need to bring up a conflict unless you make it one;)

You're successful with girls because you have good manners. (I don't often give compliments, but that was one!)

Glen D. is short.Im about 6'2 (with shoes) and from where I stood he looked to be at least 6" shorter.......
Glenn said on 9/Jan/07
Cause Im kinda short myself.but Im lucky with the girls.but I overhear girls complaining to one another about short guys.Im bad at guessing weight.
Jane said on 8/Jan/07
How do you know? ;) I'm a girl and I do like short guys. I don't like having to look up plus there are other benefits of a shorter stature that I won't get into on this forum here.

I'll go ahead and guess his weight but I'm not really good at that. I'll say maybe 165?
Glenn said on 6/Jan/07
Not many girls like short guys.
Jane said on 5/Jan/07
I like it that he's short though. He looks damned good, too. Maybe it's just because I'm short but I like short guys and I liked not having to look way up to look him in the eyes. I'm not really going to guess an exact height here but as I said, he only seemed about 4 inches taller than me (max).
Glenn said on 30/Dec/06
Yes,its shocking.
Jane said on 29/Dec/06
I've met Glenn. I am 5'00''. It shocked me as to how short he really is. He was wearing boots and he only seemed to be maybe 3-4 inches taller than me. We were practically eye level with each other.
Glenn said on 12/Dec/06
I also read a smaller figure than 5-7.and your right,105 at that height is sickly.
Anonymous said on 11/Dec/06
Well Randy has claimed 5'7 many times. Really smaller than 5'7? Well I guess that makes sense since he claimed to be 105 pounds and 105 pounds at 5'7 would be much skinnier than Randy was.
Middle-sized Cat said on 1/Nov/06
Quick update. Danny Marianinho (spelling?), the guy who beat Danzig up in that video, is 5'10".
Glenn said on 16/Oct/06
Thanks Dr.Ray.
Danimal said on 16/Oct/06
He's become a jerk because his music went South ;).
D. Ray Morton said on 15/Oct/06
"Very wrong.Aldridge is 5-7,5-8."

Yeah, about 5'8". Nice guy.
Glenn said on 15/Oct/06
Yes.once only strangely.other members many times.Joe has become a real jerk I heard.
Danimal said on 14/Oct/06
Glenn, have you met Joe?
Glenn said on 14/Oct/06
Joe Elliot is at least 6-1.
Glenn said on 14/Oct/06
Very wrong.Aldridge is 5-7,5-8.Randy 5-5 or me.look at the Tribute vinyl or cd photos.why does everyone get fooled by huge heels? yes,Sarzo 5-8.Cavazo 5-8.Dubrow 6-4 if you ask all my friends.a little smaller I think.Banali 5-8.Brad Gillis 5-8.Dana Strum 5-10.thats the Randy family tree.
Anonymous said on 13/Oct/06
Here's the pic of 5'10 Ozzy and 5'7 Randy Rhoads with Rudy Sarzo and Tommy Aldridge. Click Here

I'd say 5'8 for Sarzo and 5'11 for Aldridge
Danimal said on 5/Oct/06
Joe Elliot is a big guy, who I'm sure could take care of himself.
Anonymous said on 5/Oct/06
For what it's worth Joe Elliot said that Danzig got his ass kicked twice...once by Vivian and once by Joe. So somebody's lying either Elliot or Danzig.
Anonymous said on 5/Oct/06
Rudy Sarzo is about 5'7-5'8. There is a picture with 5'10 Ozzy and 5'7 Randy Rhoads and Sarzo is atleast 2 inchs shorter than Ozzy and about an inch bigger than Rhoads. Also Sarzo has said he's 5'7.
Middle-sized Cat said on 5/Oct/06
Hi Glenn. Great, I love cats too. Great characters! And thanks for the forum on Danzig's behaviour.

Viv Campbell's height is very hard to judge. He worked next to Dio (5'3"), then Lou Gramm (5'6"), then Adrian Vandenberg (6'5", I think!). I had him pegged at 5'10", around same as Rudy Sarzo in '87-era Whitesnake. Really, 5'6"?
Danimal said on 4/Oct/06
It's possible that Rollins is gay. It wouldn't surprise me. He seems uncomfortable around a lot of people, like he has something to hide and out of his own mouth, he hasn't had a gf since the 80's, which speaks for itself ;)..
He's not one of my favs btw, but his Black Flag (especially Damaged) and his pre-The End of Silence solo stuff is unmatched in terms of sheer agression, anger and power. His screams from '86-'91 makes Zach De La Rocka's and Maynard's, look like little girls.
Glenn said on 4/Oct/06
Cat-anyone with the name Cat in their handle is alright by me.I love Cats and Im a big old Cat spoke from the heart and I totally respect that.feel free to voice your opinions and tell me when Im wrong or out of line. oh,Anonymous, Vivian didnt kick his ass,just kicked him.Glenn didnt do anything.but if did,wouldve killed him.
Anonymous said on 4/Oct/06
I'm shocked that Vivian apparently beat up Danzig. I would have expected Danzig to win.I also thought Vivian was 5'8 rather than 5'6. I read he was 5'8 but 5'6 seems right to because he doesn't seem that much taller than 5'4 Ronnie James Dio.
Middle-sized Cat said on 4/Oct/06
Glenn, thanks for taking note. Am impressed.
Glenn said on 4/Oct/06
Rollins comes across, or at least did to me as too macho.which is gay to me,and shockingly,out of his own mouth,wondered why he was a gay icon figure.amazing.I saw him gay too.maybe its my disrespect I think he is one of your faves.I loved Black Flag.not his solo you think I should give The End Of Silence another chance? I heard when it came out.think I sold it along with my Weight vinyl.stupid of me.I RARELY sell my music.some cats I know do it weekly.I did it 3,4 times in 23 years.too macho or too feminem is gay to have to have a little of both.a balance.too many tough guys turned out to be gay I was shocked to learn,from my past.
Danimal said on 3/Oct/06
Danzig gained weight far before that 2004 event. He actually is very LEAN and Muscular again today and his voice is back. Go to Youtube and put in Hank III with Danzig. I'm still blown away. He's misunderstood, as is Henry Rollins.
Glenn said on 3/Oct/06
Cat-why would you be banned from the site? your opinions are welcomed since you were seems you know more than me on the whole Danzig thing and thanks for informing me.I still wouldnt want to fight with me and Danimal taking him on together.apparently,I might be wrong on this guy.I still think he treats fans great.but I guess he has some serious faults.
Middle-sized Cat said on 3/Oct/06
Ok, with respect to you people - you seem very decent - I have to take issue here (and not related to height, directly). The stance is simple: I believe that men should never hit women or kids. Now Danzig, like it or not, has a reputation for hitting women (and young fans) at gigs. Is this reputation justified? I'm afraid it is, judging by the guy's lyrics (who else writes about killing 13-year-old girls?) and attitude. The Viv Campbell incident, which was widely reported in the metal press, happened when Danzig swore at Campbell's wife backstage ("Get the f... outta my way!") when she happened to be unaware he was trying to pass. Campbell either punched him, sending his food flying, or kicked his backside, sending him reeling into his dropped soup-bowl, on which he struck his nose. Fair play to Campbell, surely? Danzig claimed he was afraid to hit back "in case he sued (me)". Now, Def Leppard members are rich, and have no need to sue anyone. (And Campbell made money with Dio and Whitesnake, presumably.) The same pattern emerged when Danzig was beaten up by the Northside Kings guy. Seen the clip? Danzig shoves the guy first. THAT is assault, and is on film, so the guy could've sued him without beating him up. Why did Danzig claim the assailant had used a metal blade, and then, when the vid emerged, try the 'fear of court' tack again? Desperation. The NSK guy later stated Danzig had been rude to his guitarist's wife earlier. Danzig seems to hate women.

Of course, it must be highly, highly depressing for Danzig. He put on weight, cancelled tours, stopped recording, and spent lots of energy denying he'd been punched. When the whole internet public has seen you being beaten up with one punch, it's not surprising that depression should kick in. But he gets no sympathy; he shouldn't have hit women and kids. You can ban me from the site - I understand that - but I have to be true to essential principles.

[Editor Rob: I don't mind occasional stuff drifting a bit off topic, but sometimes it just descends into arguments if I let stuff through]
Danimal said on 3/Oct/06
Neither would I!
Glenn said on 2/Oct/06
Better yet,who on this site or anywhere would take him on? not me.
Glenn said on 2/Oct/06
Exactly D.
Danimal said on 1/Oct/06
Yes, he has studied Jeet Kun Do and is back in the shape of his life today, having shed a lot of weight since the beginning of 2005 and his pipes are back to their peak (1987-1993.)
Glenn said on 23/Sep/06
Somethings fishy with all this.for starters,Campbell is 5-6 and skinny.the other taped fight,there was a rumor going around he took the hit to avoid being sued.if I recall,he was signing for a fan correct? before the fight? the man has been one of the greatest I ever witnessed when handling fans.and taught by the same expert who taught Bruce Lee.
Middle-sized Cat said on 23/Sep/06
Nah. Danzig was also famously beaten up by Viv Campbell of Def Leppard (ex-Dio and Whitesnake). Campbell hit him for being rude to his wife. Not surprising, really! Danzig refuses to accept that he's lost all these fights. Even the filmed ones! His nose is a different shape now from before the punchings.
Mr. E said on 23/Sep/06
I've read that Danzig is 5'4", but after he kicks your ass and is looking down at you...he's still 5'4"
Viper652 said on 22/Sep/06
Ive always thought Danzig would be doing the beatdowns.
Middle-sized Cat said on 20/Sep/06
That video of him being beaten up by Danny NSK is still very popular. It IS very comical. Heard Danzig had been beaten up again, this time by a Baptist Minister.
Zig Zag Wanderer said on 23/Aug/06
I've met Danzig, more than once. I'm 6'1", and wearing boots with soles that look to be about 3", he comes up to my nose.
Danimal said on 7/Aug/06
Take into account Glenn that Ronnie is in his mid-60's. When he was in Elf, Rainbow and Sabbath, he may have been 5'4" or at the very least 5'3".
D. Ray Morton said on 7/Aug/06
I have a Metal Edge that says he's 5'9".

215 at 5'9" would still be pretty big. (215 at 5'3" or 5'4" is enormous.)

King Diamond lives in Arizona?? That seems like a weird combination.
Glenn said on 7/Aug/06
Yeah,I know.Lodi I think.yeah Metal Edge magazine had him down at 5-9.Dio might even by 5-1.cause I know plenty of 5-4 girls I took to meet him,they in sneakers still beat him in heels.
Danimal said on 7/Aug/06
Glenn, Danzig is a Jersey guy. I think he lives out in Cali today. He really once claimed that he was 5'9"??? HAHA. That dude was buffed at 215 pounds, but 5'9" I THINK NOT.

Ronnie James Dio is only 5'4" and he's in his mid 60's and still the best at what he does.
Viper652 said on 5/Aug/06
Could be Arizona
Glenn said on 5/Aug/06
Arizona has a handful of metal guys.Halford,Cooper,King Diamond.maybe Danzig?
Viper652 said on 4/Aug/06
Danzig does look 5-4 at the absolute minimum. Back in the day when I was younger I thought he was some huge monster well over 6-0!! I heard once that he had some house out in the Desert in New mexico or California? I still think this bloke is scary.
Glenn said on 4/Aug/06
Danzig also claimed 5-9 for years danimal in metal mags.
Danimal said on 3/Aug/06
Just because Wolverine is 5'3", it doesn't mean so is Danzig. Danzing claims 5'5" and his former guitarist from his Danzig 1-4 days claims he's 5'5". If he's 5'3", he's at the end of it, like 5'3.75".
Glenn said on 3/Aug/06
jackman is 6-3ish.
Marc said on 2/Aug/06
Wolverine, the character from X-men is supposed to be 5'3". Glen Danzig was originally supposed to play the part due to his short stature, rather than Hugh Jackman (who is 6'2"). I'd say he is 5'3", seeing as he usually wears boots.
Danimal said on 26/Jul/06
Nah, he rested his Larynx before, between albums and tours and his voice only sounded worse everytime. This is MUCH different. Too drastic a change. I think he is minimum 5'4" and maybe even 5'5". 5'3" just seems too short.
D. Ray Morton said on 25/Jul/06
Danimal - Yeah, it's a helluva change! Maybe he just rested his larynx? But my bet is surgery.

"Ge Rouge" should be interesting.

Btw, IMDb has him at 5'3"!
Danimal said on 24/Jul/06
D. Rayton, isn't that amazing? From 2005 to 2006 the man's voice has completely changed. It's as if he went back in time to 1987-1992 (his peak). He also shed a sh@#@#t load of weight this past year. I guess if his movie is successful, he wants to look good when back in the public's eye.
Glenn said on 23/Jul/06
He is wearing heels in this you can imagine.5-4.nothing more,nothing less.thats now famous 5-9 Gilby Clarke to the right.
D. Ray Morton said on 23/Jul/06
Wow. He must have Bruce Dickinson's throat surgeon.
Danimal said on 16/Jul/06
His voice is back!!!! Check it these live clips from 2006 singing with Hank III like he's never done before!! I still can't believe it. Did he have surgery on his vocal chords Glenn?

Danimal said on 15/Jul/06
Check him out last year in concert. The man ballooned up to 230+ at least.
Danimal said on 15/Jul/06
Compare him next to the 5'7"-5'8" Kirk Hammet: Click Here
Danimal said on 15/Jul/06
Click Here

Check out right after he finishes performing Mother and John Stewart shakes his hand. They're roughly the same height. That's what I call minimum 3" shoes.

In his misfits days ('77-'83) he was VERY skinny. He had stick arms, short hair and a big nose and appeared short all the time (before he wore heals). I have interviews with him in Detroit in the early 80's and he was small in every way. Fast forward to his Danzig days. The guy was juiced up as Glenn said and wearing MINIMUM 3" boots, with long hair and a nose job. Don't believe me? Well, check out his website ( and check out those misfits pics and compare them to his later years.

For weight, I would have given him 130-135 in his Misfits days 185-190 in his Samhain days and 205 in the late eighties up until '96 and 215-220 after that. I read an article on him and Henry Rollins from 2001-2002 where it mentioned Heavy metal weightlifters and it stated that Rollins was 190-195 and Danzig was 215.

As for height, I give him 5'4", MAX 5'5".
Glenn said on 13/May/06
I saw him open up for SLAYER at that infamous FELT FORUM concert in 1988,and he was wide he was juicing around 1987,maybe 1986.
D. Ray Morton said on 11/May/06
He's not very cut these days (according to recent pics I've seen), that's for sure.

Glenn, thanks. I just checked out an early 80s Misfits video and Danzig was tiny! The guy's arms were pipe cleaners. Did he start juicing in the early 90s or something?
Chad said on 11/May/06
Well, I'm about 5'4" myself and I workout like a madman too! Wouldn't you if you were my height? He could very well weigh 225. It's not impossible. I weigh about 175 and I have people telling me that I'm pretty big for my height. But I can certainly pack on another 30 or 40 lbs of muscle easy. Muscle weighs more than fat so it's possible. I've seen a lot of bodybuilders around my height that are much larger than me that way in the 200s.
Glenn said on 7/May/06
Oh,you did say height aside,Dr.Ray.didnt see that at first sorry.
Glenn said on 7/May/06
What do you mean big? in muscle? even in that department I wasnt impressed.I wouldnt want to fight him either way.I was at that show.
D. Ray Morton said on 7/May/06
Glenn, height aside, was Danzig really all that big in person?

Never met him or any of his band members, but did get to see the original lineup in '89 at...the Ritz, I think? White Zombie (with Rob, of course) opened. Amazing show.
Glenn said on 6/May/06
Great albums.he claimed he didnt want to get sued.
Glenn said on 5/May/06
No offence,but thats a dumb think the man walks around without heels?
Nelson Heights said on 5/May/06
Danzig has a glass jaw.He went down like a tree when that dude from North side kings cracked him!.Danzig shoved him like a big girl then got ko'd.Ha ha.

However the albums Danzig 1-4 where awesome!.Also id say he is in the range of 5'4-5'6.
Boxing Fighter said on 4/May/06
I simply don`t understand. By Gleen`s photo he does look like 5ft6. Why are you saying that he is 5ft4, or even shorter?
Kane said on 2/Apr/06
As someone who has met both ( and despite other stories) were nice guys they really are not huge. I'm 5'10 200 and was bigger than both.
Both are in great shape and look good for thier size and I can only hope when i'm thier age to look as well. Ethier way, they are great artist and this is really funny as in no one talks about the size or weight of roy orbison or cash or anyone (maybe elvis) but alas listen to the music and forget everything else.
P.S Mike Ness. small too.
Anonymous said on 21/Mar/06
John Christ (former guitarist for Danzig) informed me Glenn Danzig was 5'4" with 2" heels on. Take it for whatever it is worth.
Glenn said on 18/Feb/06
in metal edege magazine he was listed as 5-9! he could be 5-3.

Danimal you are correct.he is 5-4.thats 5-9 gilby clarke of gun&roses in the shot as well.
Danimal said on 12/Feb/06
Dominic, what are you talking about? Touchy about what subject? He is 5'4", MAX 5'5". He wears very thick healed boots/shoes, which are at least 3". He's short, but definitely huge.
Dominic said on 11/Feb/06
Come on he has to be 5'6. Just look at him next to Glenn. Don't put him at 5'4 just because your 'touchy' about the subject.
Glenn said on 4/Feb/06
yes rollins is 5-9.
Danimal said on 3/Feb/06
Henry Rollins stated on a Howard Stern interview that he is 190-195 pounds. Stern thought he was well over 200 pounds.

He was one thick dude in the 90's. He has lost a lot of muscle and size since the late 90's.

Danzig is DEFINITELY 200+ pounds. Not all muscle anymore either.
D. Ray Morton said on 3/Feb/06
I know this isn't a weight forum, but...

"I know Henry Rollins is between 190-195 pounds"

Are you sure about that? Rollins is definitely around 5'8.5" or 5'9". I saw him a number of times in New York back in the day. First time was in a San Loco take out place near NYU - standing in line, right in front of me - and I was shocked at how short he was. Anyway...195 lbs. is a lot for even a 5-9er. Is he really that big?

And Danzig at 225? Not likely. That'd be packing near-Schwarzeneggerian size onto a 5'4" or 5'5" frame.
D. Ray Morton said on 2/Feb/06
Danzig looks around 5'6" here. Was he wearing boots?
Danimal said on 28/Jan/06
It was a cheap shot btw. In a real fight, where Glenn would have seen it coming, I'm sure he could have taken care of himself.
James said on 26/Jan/06
Either way, that dude from northside kings knocked his head off with one punch. He's probably 4'6 now after that decapitation.
Danimal said on 20/Jan/06
Not only is he short, but his temper is as well. ;) You have to respect the man for his musical accomplishments though. Almost 30 years going strong! Mother!!!!!
Danimal said on 20/Jan/06
He wishes he was 6 feet tall. Actually, I wish I was 6 feet tall. Well, at least I'm not 5'4"-5'5". Being 5'9 1/3" suits me just fine ;).
Glenn said on 19/Jan/06
I wouldnt mess with him too.I heard he knows bruce lee's teachers.
Viper652 said on 19/Jan/06
I thought this guy was a huge 6 foot plus monster back in the day. Hes still a scary dude who I wouldnt want to mess with.
Glenn said on 18/Jan/06
yes,5-4,5-3 is correct.he can look 5-6 to 5-8 in big heels.
snitchin said on 18/Jan/06
look how short danzig really is compared 2 this other guy...he might be way shorter than 5'6*-http%3A//
Mr. Awesome said on 18/Jan/06
i was always under the impression that he was 5'5''. it's the most common listing that i've seen for him. either way, the guy is a beast regardless...he obviously works out like a madman to make up for his height or something...and he's obviously a very talented of the most legendary rock singers of all time
