Marilyn Manson Likens His New Guitar God To A Naked Woman

Everyone believed Marilyn Manson when he announced three months ago that he'd be throwing in the proverbial rock and roll towel to focus all his creative attention on film. Manson, the consummate rock star, was fibbing in a sense

he won't be remembered in 20 years at all. i think his best work is behind him. he may be getting more creative with his music, but not in a good way. i'm so over manson.

i love marilyn manson.. but nothing after mechanical animals has ever excited me so i guess that says something. i think he'll be remembered, but maybe just as a footnote.

 

ps i did not read that article because i'm a big lame

Sorta lame how he says or does something that would (very predictably and understandably to any moron) draw attetnion, then get pissed off when that attention actually comes.

too bad he didn't stick around in the trent reznor school of music a little while longer... he might've learned something.

Pretty much what everyone else has said. He was good back in the day, but now hes rolling downhill.

i think that people MAY remember him in 20yrs...lets say when their kids are going through their record collections and pull out a manson cd. he won't be remembered like alice cooper or kiss are, because lets face it, they were/are bloody cool. lol.

 

my option would be in the middle, so that means i can not vote.

I think he will be remembered 20 years from now, its just hard to see it as him being remembered like Kiss and Alice Cooper because A) No one likes and respects newcomer bands as much as predecessors and B) It hasnt been even 10 years since hes gone away so we havent had a chance to really miss him yet.

Mechanical Animals was his best album in my opinion. Im really interested to see what else he can do outside of a musical realm.

just as an aside, danny lohner and wes borland have recently done a remix of "irresponsible hate anthem" that i think sounds 10x better than the original. ya'll should check it out. its the "venus head trap mix".

yeah, but he's in the sucky band by choice; he must have some sort of inclination to sucky music. or maybe my logic is just twisted...

I love Manson but i have trouble holding faith in him as a person, because Pogo's the only original member, and with a turnover rate like that, it makes you wonder what he's actually like as a person. I don't how true they are, but John 5 said some pretty nasty things since his departure..

 

I love the trilogy, but everything other than that has been kind of boring in my opinion, with the exception of GOAG's b-side, "Believe."

I used to kidna like Manson (Grade 8, so '97) I lost interest, but stll had respect for him. Then I went to New Music West in 2001, he was the keynote speaker that year. He basically admitted to dressing up to make more money. Something along the lines of not being a musician, but an entertainer. I lost all respect, he's a 'douche vader' for sure.

I respect the man, especially Mechanical Animals and Holywood. But I don't know what he was trying to prove with The Golden Age Of Grotesque.

he was confirming that watered-down rock music can, in fact, be written with rap lyrics.

 

i mean.. i've got an F and a C and i've got a K too.... all that's missing is a bitch like U? tell me that's not a rap song in disguise.

i think he was trying to come off as clever, using rap to make fun of the people involved in it... not that it worked though... he was tryign to be ironic but irony died in the 90s.

yeah, perhaps he's the new axl rose. "marilyn manson and the revolving doors"

i dunno. this isn't the first time he's done something rap-ish. i mean, look at the tainted love video... and he basically raps in the new shit. i think he's got a case of rap envy and we're going to see some link park numetal rap stylings on his next album.
