DJ Danny Tenaglia announces he is "resigning" from music in shock FaceBook message

Stop the Music

New York house DJ Danny Tenaglia has dramatically announced he is pressing pause on his career. The 51-year-old club legend and Grammy-nominated producer — who had residencies in the 1990s at New York’s biggest megaclubs Twilo, Tunnel and the Roxy — said he is “resigning” and left a farewell message on his Facebook page Tuesday that shocked the electronic-music world. “I have seen the mountaintop as a DJ and I just need to STOP and smell the roses of my life and simply try to Grow Up and BE who I really am,” he wrote. Tenaglia also claims that he can’t afford his New York loft. “I know many people think I am wealthy, but I am not! I have lived well and have very nice things to show for my earnings, but I cannot stop working!!” Tenaglia wrote. He said the final straw came after he flew back from Miami and lost his “murse,” containing his passport and keys, at the airport. He’s hanging up his headphones at a time when electronic DJ Tiësto took home $20 million last year, and deadmau5, Swedish House Mafia and Avicii are earning $1 million a gig. Sources tell us, “He’s been DJing for 30 years, has traveled the world and is burned out.” Tenaglia says his “last” gig will be at Pacha New York April 28, and many house music luminaries will be there to support.
