In an interview with Electricbasement.com, guitarist JOHN5 (David Lee Roth, Two) dismissed the idea that his departure from MARYLIN MANSON was frought with friction, "What actually happened was, at the end of the tour, we were just on different roads. It was completely amicable. He just wanted to write with other members of the band, and I wanted to do other things."
Asked if Manson's public comments to the contrary were for publicity John 5 responds, "I don't know, but everything's fine."
John 5 also sheds light on the difference between working with ROB HALFORD (in Two), DAVID LEE ROTH (DLR Band) and Manson, "Rob was a true, true professional. He was so good at his craft. He was such a pleasure. Working with him was fantastic because he's such a great guy. I don't think I ever saw him mad.
"David Lee Roth is the true rock star. He was running the show: 'This is how we're going to do it, boys,' like the old Van Halen. I had a blast with David Lee Roth. As for Manson, everyone always asks me if Manson is real. He definitely is real and a true artist.
"[Manson's] a great songwriter, producer, a great individual. That's why I stayed with Manson. He was so real. He was not a joke. But all three are very different individuals."
