The Members:

Marilyn Manson

Marilyn Manson

Names come from:

-Marilyn Monroe (Actress)
-Charles Manson (60's killer cult leader)

Real name: Brian Warner

Instruments (Mechanical Animals): Vocals

D.O.B.: January 5th, 1969 in Canton, Ohio.

All of the band members chose names to get the glamour of a super model and they chose the serial killers because of America's fascination with them. On another interesting point, "Marilyn" has 7 letters which is the number of God and Manson has 6 letters: the Devil's number.

-Marilyn's father is a furniture salesman and his mother is a nurse.
-Manson attended Heritage Christian School until he reached the tenth grade.
-In the fifth grade little Brian Warner was sent to the principle's office for brining an AC/DC record to music appreciation class. This is where Manson learned which buttons to push to get a reaction.
-Manson's first concert that he attended was the KISS Dynasty Tour in 1979.
-One of Manson's teacher's recalls him as a "teacher's delight" and respected others and kept to himself, he was never disrespectful.
-It was in his teens that Manson began changing his appearance due to the fact that he was becoming self-conscious of himself.
-Supposedly Manson had his earlobes shortened by plastic surgery.
-Manson was tall and skinny, therefore he was often beat-up by the older, bigger kids.

Marilyn Manson is a person who is trying to make a difference in our society, a positive one. The only people who think that Marilyn Manson is just some Devil worshipping freak who kills chickens and removes his ribs are the ones who are afraid to accept the fact that they can relate to Marilyn and that they can see some of their evil in Manson.

Twiggy Ramirez

Twiggy Ramirez

Names come from:

-Twiggy ('60's model)
-Richard Ramirez (satanic serial killer, a.k.a. The Night Stalker - a drifting drug abuser who has been found guilty of 13 murders and 30 felonies ranging from robbery to sexual assault, sometimes including children)

Real name: Jeordie White

Instruments (Mechanical Animals): All guitars & bass.

"I want to continue to try and break the barrier between male and female..." With his drab dresses and dreadlocks hair along with the motley makeup, Twiggy is probably the strongest physical statement in the band. Twiggy grew up with his aunt and does not know who his father is or where he was born. The reason for this is that his mother used to dance in a cage onstage for Mountain, Leslie West's band and for the Kinks. His father might be either guitar legend West, or the Kinks' Ray Davies.

Twiggy was constantly around music when growing up, his aunt was a groupie and was friends with the Ramones. She also used to date one of the Bee Gees.
