What is Going on Between Marilyn Manson and Rob Zombie? [POLL]
The Twins of Evil Tour with Rob Zombie and Marilyn Manson just got underway less than a couple of weeks ago and there is enough drama and words to fill an entire tour.
According to Loudwire, both Marilyn Manson and Rob Zombie have been hurling insults at each other via social media and on stage during their respective sets. During a recent show in Michigan, Manson told the crowd that he was going to go “kick his ass,” referring to Zombie, in between sets and apologized for not being able to play more songs.
Rob Zombie responded on stage later that night while performing a version of Alice Cooper’s classic “School’s Out” making comments in between the verses and chorus such as “Suck it Marilyn Manson,” and “F Marilyn Manson,” just to name a few.
Zombie also took to his Facebook page with the following statement earlier today (Sat 10/13):
As stupid as this all is, I feel I must clear things up a little better. First off, I want to thank all the fans who came out in the freezing cold in Detroit last night. It was a total blast as always.
Unfortunately things turned ugly backstage. Why? I don’t know, but for some reason our touring partner decided to end his set by blaming me for something that I had nothing to do with and screamin
g he was going to “kick Rob Zombie’s ass as soon as he got off stage”.
Go figure. I was backstage hanging, watching the show thinking “hey this is gonna be a great night”, when suddenly he starts screaming threats. So strange. I don’t get it. Christ, I’ve known some of his crew for 20 (expletive) years and some of his crew used work for me. It’s all good. No one would (expletive) with someone’s show. It is ridiculous.
Well, of course I felt the need to respond to the ” kick my ass remark”. Who wouldn’t? Although I wish I had kept it backstage and kept the fans out of it. It is all 4rd grade fight after school nonsense of which I have never dealt with on tour before. Co-headlining tours always go smooth because everything is cut 50/50 and I mean everything. No one (expletive) with anyone’s show. It is even (expletive) Steven.
I’ve done it co-headlining tours many times before and have had no troubles. Not with Pantera, Slayer, Alice Cooper, Korn, Megadeth or anyone ever. So I didn’t expect any troubles on this. It seemed like a great idea at the time.
But (expletive) happens. Anyway, sorry to the fans who had to dealt with the embarrassing stupidity of it all. We are all there for the same reasons to give you the best show ever… that’s it.
Since we can’t settle the squabble ourselves, let’s settle it Slaughterhouse style, by voting. Vote for whose side YOU are on and we’ll play something from the winner during the 11 o’clock hour next weekend right here on the Saturday Night Slaughterhouse. Vote early and often and the winner of this heavy metal brawl will be revealed during next week’s show.
