Date of Birth : Jan 5th 1969

American musician and artist known for his outrageous stage persona and image as the lead singer of the eponymous band. His stage name was formed from the names Marilyn Monroe and Charles Manson, showing what he considered the ultimate and most disturbing dualism of American culture.

Marilyn Manson started out in photojournalism before he got into music. At 18 he moved to Florida and began to write stories and poems which he tried to get published. After being turned down by various magazines, he met up with Scott Mitchell (Daisy Berkowitz). Together they formed a band originally called “The Spooky Kids” which has since gone on to mega-goth fame.

Manson’s first work as a producer was with the band Jack Off Jill. Not only did he help name the band and produce most of the band’s early recordings but also played guitar on the song “My Cat” and had the band open most of his South Florida shows. Manson later wrote the liner notes to the band’s album Humid Teenage Mediocrity, a collection of early Jack Off Jill recordings.

Manson has appeared as a guest performer with several artists including rap artist DMX’s album Flesh of My Flesh, Blood of My Blood and on Godhead’s 2000 Years of Human Error album — the only album released on Manson’s vanity label Posthuman.
