interesting facts about Marilyn Manson

August 10, 2009 | In: Music facts

Marilyn Manson was originally a music journalist before he got into music.

His name is a combination of the names of actress Marilyn Monroe and murderer Charles Manson.The original name of his rock group was Marilyn Manson and The Spooky Kids.

His real name is Brian Hugh Warner.

Marilyn Manson has claimed to have smoked human bones for the sake of a new experience on an interview.

Dita Von Teese, who is singer Marilyn Manson’s girlfriend, appeared in one of Green Day’s videos.

His 1996 album Antichrist Superstar came fifth in Classic Rock Magazine’s list of the 30 greatest concept albums of all time.

Is best friends with actress and singer Mandy Moore and has referred to her as his love child.

Probably the most controversial character in music history, Marilyn Manson puts price on the music he makes, and not only on the lyrics. This is why he was nominated for the Grammy Awards 6 times, and won one. Moreover, one of his albums prowdly stands between the world’s 30 most prolific albums off all time. But how did it all start?!

Interesting fact about Marilyn Manson is that he was the only child of Barbra and Hugh, a descendant from a german-polish family.

In his early ears, Manson was a religious boy, keeping track of all the Episcopal’s Church gatherings, even though his father was a catholic.

From the first to the 10th grade, he attended the Heritage Christian School. After that, his views over the world changed radically, and he transferred to Glenoak College in Ohio, to study philosophy.

In college he started to write music articles for a local magazine. His work provided him meetings with big rockstars, like Trent Reznor from Nine Inch Naile.These changes, combined with the memory of a sado-masochistic grandfather led to the birth of Marylin Manson and the Spooky Kids.

If you find him to be a freak based on what you read of him, not from him, then I would suggest reading his autobiography.
