Glenn Danzig is smiling as he tells you this, but you know he's serious. The occasion is a career-spanning interview in Los Angeles with this maverick of punk rock and heavy metal, this vampire Elvis with the Mr. Universe build. That recording set the stage for much that followed, introducing the career-defining single "Mother," and leading all the way to last year's Black Laden Crown, his first album of original material since 2010 and, shockingly, one of his best. It said "Glenn Danzig. It didn't cost me much to record. The artwork might've been more than the recording of it and it ended up going to No. 1 on Billboard's classical chart, which surprised me and I ended up selling tons of them.
The latter greatly informed Danzig’s first group, seminal horror punks the Misfits, which struggled for years in the musical underground, known only to dedicated fans, before enjoying a belated renaissance when they were championed by celebrity fans Cliff Burton and James Hetfield of Metallica
Danzig is seeking however much money he is owed from the sales of the merchandising deals, plus interest. And in true Danzig fashion, there is a wonderful dig at Jerry Only (aka Jerry Caiafa) in Section 9 of the document: After forming the band, Danzig replaced the original bass player with Caiafa, whose primary qualification was that he had recently received a bass guitar for Christmas. You can almost hear Danzig telling his lawyer, Put that in there, the part about me only letting him in because he got a bass for Christmas

Danzig, ‘Danzig’ (1988). By the time he formed his eponymous band in 1987, Glenn Danzig was already an underground hero, having spent the prior decade grinding it out with horror-punks the Misfits and gothic hard rockers Samhain. But Danzig’s self-titled debut was the album that signified the frontman’s arrival as a full-on metal icon, with its stark cow-skull cover art, greaser-gang-style band photo and bone-dry production by Rick Rubin, which accented the swaggering wallop of drummer Chuck Biscuits and squealing riffs of guitarist John Christ. For all intents and purposes, it was just a demo for us to try and get a record deal. After spending much of the Eighties as a regional Texas glam band, Pantera redefined themselves as a thrashy, proto-groove-metal outfit with 1990’s Cowboys from Hell.
