Band Photo: Marilyn Manson (?)

Formed: 1989
From: Tampa Bay, FL, United States
Last Known Status: Active

Background

Forming in 1989, the original Marilyn Manson line-up consisted of part-time journalist Manson (b. Brian Warner, 5 January 1969, Canton, Ohio, USA; vocals/tape loops), Daisy Berkowitz (guitar), Olivia Newton-Bundy (bass) and Zsa Zsa Speck (keyboards), later joined by Sara Lee Lucas (drums) - all the band members assuming forenames of female icons and surnames of famous murderers. Bundy and Speck were replaced at the end of 1989 by Gidget Gein and Madonna Wayne Gacy (b. Steve Bier), respectively.

The best description I think I have ever seen of Manson comes from RollingStone Magazine. It goes like this:

"Imagine Alice Cooper times 10. Picture KISS on an acid and whiskey bender. Marry the gross-out hilarity of G.G. Allin with the ubiquity of Howard Stern. Combine the "search and destroy" frenzy of Iggy Pop with the godless zeal of Ozzy Osbourne. Take two cups of the devil and throw in a pinch of P.T. Barnum, and you still can't fathom all that is...Marilyn Manson."

To me this describes the whole aura and prescence of Manson. The band has caused controversy with almost everything they have done. Manson has been sued, arrested, and banned in certain cities from playing live. They were accused of providing the thoughts that were brought out during the 'Columbine School Shootings' with one of their song's lyrics.

To fans, Manson is a God. His live shows are as heavy and exciting as any other metal tour around. During live performances Manson has been known to piss on the crowd, kill chickens, engage in sexual acts, tear the Bible, stab himself, and the list goes on.

Black Light Burns Mainman Gives Album Update

Black Light Burns mainman/Marilyn Manson and ex-Limp Bizkit guitarist Wes Borland has posted the following message online regarding the bands new album:

"The new Black Light Burns record is about 90% finished. Nick (Annis) and I are doing some final guitar tracks tomorrow and then we'll polish the mixes. As far as my opinion is concerned, we just topped "Cruel Moody." I'm so excited for you guys to hear this... we might have to put some songs up soon. We're currently booking shows for January-February 2009 in the U.S. with Combichrist. A few more possible engagements have presented themselves before next year, but we'll have to wait and see how things turn out. I can't wait to come over to Europe and Japan. So much is happening. Excited."
