Sunday Book Review: Walking Through Hell With Marilyn Manson
Sunday Book Review is a recurring feature devoted to bridging the gap between music fans and music books. We aim to give you a taste of new and classic books that dive deep into the psyches of musicians.
From the day he first strutted out on stage, Brian Warner aka Marilyn Manson has been controversy flypaper. He has riled up the Christian Right and inspired rumors so outrageous that they flaunt the boundaries of physical possibility. (For the record, he did not have his lower rib removed so he could perform fellatio on himself, though he did have plastic surgery to fix his abnormally droopy earlobes - the vanity!) If you are at all intrigued by one of Christianity’s most unapologetic enemies and one of rock’s most thoughtful hedonists, then read a dozen lessons we’ve ripped from the beating heart of his autobiography, The Long Hard Road Out of Hell.Click to start the list
