Glen gets head butted by Norman Mailer

Post by PFOLGORE » Tue Jun 25, 2019 2:31 am

Apparently Glen Buxton with members of Shrapnel were visiting Norman Mailer. Norman took a vocal and instant disliking toward Glen. Later Glen made a comment on a portrait of Mailer’s wife saying that he would f### her. Mailer then grabbed Glen by the ears and gave him a headbutt that dropped him. He was then thrown out of Mailer’s house.

That wasn't Glen it was Dick Wagner who was hiding behind a curtain!

My question is who was "Shrapnel" and how did they get an invite to Mailer's house?

I think it was a bar band Glen was in.

I'd love to know how they got invited to Mailer's house. Perhaps he head butted Glen to send a message to his brother-in-law.

Reading about it from another source apparently Mailer’s teenage kids had a interest in the band Shrapnel and they were invited to a party at the house along with Glen.

An American punk band from the late 70’s who I think used to wear military uniforms onstage. Glen guested with them at some point.

I assumed it was about G. Sobel and apparently my eyes assumed as well while I read the OP.

Boy, was I ever confused there for a second :D :D

New Jersey Punk band & I think Glen may have liked their attitude & the Uniforms!
If it wasn't for the web they would be less than a footnote. They did have a few releases (mostly singles), although a few of the band members did move on to more well known bands.
