There’s no need to write an introduction for this man. I guess no matter if you like his music or not, you know who he is. Or at least you should! What is clear, though, is that Manson has his days of greatness behind him. I have never been a big fan, but I have never been a no-fan either. To me, Manson’s musical back catalogue is somewhat a quality roller coaster where he has reached some really high tops, but also has a real low lowest level, so to speak. Born Brian Hugh Warner, Manson and his band took a Beauty And the Beast kind of image and used stage names from both good and evil, combining the names of loony mass murders and gorgeous actresses and alter egos like Marilyn Manson, Twiggy Ramirez, Ginger Fish, Daisy Berkowitz and Madonna Wayne Gacy were born. Genius, if you ask me. And controversial, of course, but that was the whole idea. Visually, the idea was to take the image of bands such as Alice Cooper, W.A.S.P., Kiss and Mötley Crüe and take it way, way, way further.
