Manson Family Values

Marilyn Manson saved himself from a life of decadence, and now he thinks he can save rock 'n' roll

It's a persuasive theory, even though it probably has little to do with the attention-grabbing desires that fueled Manson when he was Brian Warner back in Fort Lauderdale. In any event, the inevitable question is where Manson can go from here, now that he has already gobbled down as much decadence as any stomach could hold. How does Marilyn Manson grow old? When confronted with the same dilemma, Alice Cooper donned golf pants and became a respectable pillar of Paradise Valley. Manson can't see himself making that move.

"I imagine myself being a bitter old man who sits on his back porch shooting birds," he says. "That's how my grandfather was. I don't see myself making any tearful recovery from the way I am now. I think for [Cooper], and people like him, it's more about giving up drugs and alcohol, because it was a problem, and replacing it with Christianity, which is much more of a problem.

"I don't see myself finding the Christian idea of God anytime soon. I think I've found my own version in different things, particularly in music. And I'm too violent for golf."

The Marilyn Manson/Hole show scheduled for Thursday, March 18, at Veterans' Memorial Coliseum, has been canceled.
