    He was Artie high on Talking Dead. He made no sense at all, but I think it made a boring show a little bit interesting.

    I wanna say that Howard is responsible for Manson. At least I always heard he got his start because Howard (likely Fred) started playing their cover of "Sweet Dreams" on the show and the song/band exploded as a result. Then Trent Reznor got involved and produced "Anti-Christ Superstar" and that made Manson the new big thing for all the wannabe goth kids/wannabe metalheads of the mid-late-90s.

    A couple years ago I went on a Manson kick and listened to all his stuff. As expected, "Anti-Christ.." was (in my opinion) the best thing he did. Probably because it's essentially a NIN record. His last couple albums are truly awful.

    Why is he still around? I don't know. It's weird that the guy is in his 40s and still writing songs about being a teenager who's mad at his parents. Maybe his earlier albums still sell?

    He had his moment, but it's hard to keep making music when you're drug-addled - even worse when you're marginally talented to begin with. I met him once in Vegas, he was pretty cool. It was in 97 and we talked about the construction in Vegas at the time, he was able to hold a reasonably intelligent conversation about architecture.

    I've been a Manson fan since Holywood (2000) The music took a dive when the bassist left, but he's back and the last album wasn't horrible. Manson live the last few years is beyond horrible though. His stage show was like art:

    Now he enters the stage in his streets clothes and mumbles into the mic.

    This is a valid question, I'm watching right now and it seems like he and Jack are intentionally trying to be dicks.

    You dick! Now I'm going to have bad dreams tonight. :jj:

    He put out a few good tunes in the day, but that was about 10 or more years ago. Looks like a sad old queen now.

    i saw them open for danzig in spring '95, before howard discovered them with "sweet dreams". in front of my cousin and me was this huge biker with a giant danzig skull on his jacket. during a song, marilyn starts pounding himself in the butt with the mic. the biker turns around to us and says "who the fuck is this faggot?".

    He was on That Metal Show recently (you can watch it on vh1.com). Florentine and Eddie Trunk kissed his ass though, he was drunk out of his mind on absinthe during the interview and even got Eddie to drink some. I'm not really a big fan, personally.

    As long as there are fat 14 year old girls in the midwest he will have an audience.
