Merilina Manson is 50 years old
American rock singer, songwriter, actor, poet, artist and former music journalist Marilyn Manson celebrates the 50th anniversary. “Газета.Ru” talks about the path to becoming the most famous shock rocker of the planet.
Childhood American rocker Marilyn Manson, whose real name is Brian Hugh Warner, was perfectly calm: he was born in a religious family, wrote poetry, went to Church school and then became a music columnist. After two years of work, Brian decided to radically change direction — and in 1989 he became a hero of journalistic materials.
Together with guitarist Scott Putesky Brian Warner created his rock band and became Marilyn Manson.
The alias of the musician consists of fragments of two of the most discussed in the 60-ies of the names of the deceased in 1962, actress Marilyn Monroe and serial killer Charles Manson.
At first the band was called Marilyn Manson and The Spooky Kids, Manson himself was a vocalist, and Scott Putesky, who took the pseudonym Daisy Berkowitz, played guitar and programmed drum machine. The first lineup of the band also included a bassist Olivia Newton-Bundy and keyboardist For the Cake. Soon Newton Bundy and Speck were replaced by bassist Gidget Gein and keyboardist Madonna Wayne Gacy.
Marilyn Manson and The Spooky Kids, started performing the warming-up before concerts by popular musicians — so they said the leader of the American industrial-rock band Nine Inch Nails ‘ Trent Reznor, who became a friend and mentor of the young team.
The first logo of the group, like the alias of its singer, was created on the basis of fragments of the names Marilyn Monroe and Charles Manson: the upstairs part of the face of a popular actress and sex symbol of 50-ies with a playful look, and below — eyes of a maniac. In the center of their names combined writing “Marylin Manson” “dripping” font, which is commonly used in horror films.
The group is rapidly developing not only his position in the music market, but an advertising campaign: almost immediately, a series of Souvenirs with spooky symbols of the team, which is liked by the audience. It is assumed that communication in journalistic circles helped Manson to always be at the hearing.

On their live performances the band used everything they could to reinforce the impression of the audience: the band members used the creepy clown makeup, were thrown into the crowd of peanut butter, carried on a scene or crucified prisoners in the cells of girls that used nudity, used an open flame and bald goat head.
