Marilyn Manson. The man, the myth, the legend; Often imitated, never duplicated. Of all controversial celebrities, Marilyn Manson has had not only probably the most myths circulated about him but also the must outrageous. At 46 years old Manson has lived through the time when people were too sensitive to his music and themes and are now numb to it and has always been true to himself while others create stories about him. At this point the legend is much bigger than the man and it is about time someone cleared up exactly what he has done and most importantly what he has not.
His name is actually Brian Hugh Warner. He formed his stage name using two well known American cultural icons, Marilyn Monroe and Charles Manson.http://www.stereogum.com/tag/marilyn-manson/ Source: Stereogum
