Where did you hear this? Don't know why but sounds hilarious
Way back in RAW magazine - tea trays at dawn:
After seeing Danzig's response about the
Def Leppard/Danzig brawl, Joe Elliot had a few comments of his own. In
a recent RAW interview, he had these things to say: first, Joe claims
that he did not give the story to RAW to begin with. None of the
comments were true and the story came from an over-imaginative reporter.
Secondly, in regard to the publicity stunt charge, he stated that they
were the headliners at a festival in Germany with over 50,000 people in
attendance. Danzig was way down on the billing. So if anybody needed
publicity, it would be Danzig and not Def Leppard.
And finally, Elliot had these last statements: "Yes an altercation
did occur in Germany because Glenn Danzig is a rude little fuck." He
further explained, "We weren't in his way, as he claimed. He was carrying
his dinner and walked straight into us. He said, 'Get the fuck out of my
way!'" Joe then said they asked him to repeat it because they couldn't
believe what they had heard. He also claims they didn't even know who
"I actually thought he was a stagehand. I certainly didn't recognize him
because he was so short!" He then added, "And, yes, he got his ass kicked
twice, once by me, once by Vivian." He went on to say that Danzig was not as
brave as he claimed, referring to another incident where Glenn apparently
called Vivian Campbell's wife a non-complimentary name. And Joe also denied
that Danzig tried in any way to settle the matter. "Obviously, he must have
small man's syndrome."
