Meh, real band would just do acoustic set

It was probably just gravitational pull...

Skeleton Man: Manson's pretty brilliant and despite a few douchey moments here and there over the years he's by all accounts a very cool dude. Hope he's not too seriously hurt.

Lumber Jack Off: /saw Manson a couple times in the 90's - he was a force to be reckoned with.


Saw them twice opening for NIN on the downward spiral tour. He was pretty much on top of his game at that point and it was still mostly comical. At the Atlanta show, you could hear people making fun of them between songs.

Met him backstage at another show around that time and he was just creepy. Not show business persona creepy, genuinely creepy. My younger brother and his girlfriend were in high school at the time and were at the show, too. At the end of the show they snuck backstage with my passes (my fault for letting the kids hold on to them). I ended up flagging down one of the Jim Rose guys who was wandering around outside, and he took me promptly back there when I told him there were a couple of 15-year olds hanging out with Manson. When I approached them, he was holding a giant chalice filled with Skittles and trying to get the girl to eat them from the palm of his other hand. And then, of course, they threw us all out.

FTFA:The 48-year-old rock (sic) star...

Yeah, no. Music of some kind, maybe. Not rock. Marilyn is for the weedy little asthmatic kids that would have liked Kiss if not for all the Kiss fans beating the crap out of them after school every day.

So he's no longer one of the beautiful people?

We should all pray for him.

It's what he would, uh,  want.

Just because you don't like it does not disqualify it from being rock. It's rock. It's not ball-scratchin' Freedom Rock rock, but it's rock. Kiss? Also rock. Can't stand them, but rock.

^ This.

Rolling Stone is now saying he's cancelled concert dates thru Oct. 14. No one seems to know if he's left the hospital or the nature of his injuries.

He dated Rose McGowan in the 90s. That's the only thing I respect about him.

He'll be in surgery this week. It's not life threatening. This isn't another reference to an urban legend.
 
2017-10-01 07:10:06 PM  
So his show was actually entertaining for a change?

They were supposed to be regular sized guns but he too mixed which of " and ' represents inches and which represents feet.

I have it on good authority that "Love Gun" is some kind of double entendre. True story.

doglover: Daddy's Big Pink Man-Squirrel: Kiss fans beating the crap out of

Have you met a Kiss fan?


The majority of the Kiss fans I knew were varsity meatheads (a recently released Zeppelin album was a close second place, especially on the football team). All their taste was between their legs.

Most every Zeppelkiss* song from those years brings back memories of various quickies with various dickies, most of them either in a white pickup, a ghastly root-beer-with-flames el camino, or a parked school bus. There's a lot to be said for the days when girls didn't put out. At least as long as you're big enough to not get beat up.

The past ain't what it used to be.

* I was into proto-punk and King Crimson. Other people's music was at best background noise.

So you were big enough to Fark, but too big to beat up? Weird.

I'm old enough to think I have the right to disagree with that assessment, and dumb enough to think other people give a shjit. Kiss is a myopic, priapic embarrassment to any male over the age of fifteen, but so is Insane Clown Pussy, and now he's the farking President.

Marilyn Manson's entire oeuvre is a dumbed-down pastiche of pop cliches presented as pseudonihilistic grand guignol with more technology and less clarity of intent. Not saying he's not entertaining - I'm sure he is, but so is Dolly Parton, and I'll not be going out of my way to see either of them, as it were. And I don't think actually listening to his music or seeing him perform will change my mind. Now if you'll excuse me, I see a cloud that doesn't know my opinion of Rush.

They suck.

I'm pretty sure they were afraid of where their fists might end up.

And that, I do believe, is the nastiest comment I have ever left anywhere.

Someone should have told Mr. Manson not to play with guns.
 
2017-10-01 09:51:32 PM  

fastfxr: I saw a crappy video clip of it and you can tell it's a HEAVY prop. My guess is that he got farked up pretty good.


In the crappy video clip I saw, a stage-right roadie lifted his side over his head with one arm. The crew had it back up in position before the guy sleeping at the soundboard faded down the backing track with all the instruments on it.

My wife toured with them in the mid 90's, said Manson and the guys were always doing coke that they stashed in some super rare black ken doll.  She said Brian was nice, but not apparently enough to be alone with.

I try to give his new stuff a listen through at least once when it comes out.  The guy has some awesomely awful cheesy edge-lord stuff, like

They'll cut our wrists like cheap coupons and say that death was on sale today

Now, can any of you read/listen to that and not just be in total awe of it?

No, you can't.
