Before Marilyn Manson

As you might have guessed, this guy wasn't born Marilyn Manson. His real name is Brian Hugh Warner and he grew up in Canton, Ohio. Although there is little reported about Brian Warner's life before he became Marilyn Manson, he seems to have been pretty normal. At least we know he had normal fears, because Brian Warner basically admitted he would have been scared of his Marilyn Manson persona when he was younger, stating, "I've grown up to become the things that hurt and scared me."

Brian Warner Becomes Marilyn Manson

By the time Brian Warner was 18 he had developed creative passions for writing and music. Brian was also very intrigued by the freedom of speech/censorship debate. Brian moved to Florida and worked as a part-time music journalist and began to write poems and stories. It was while he was living in Florida that Brian met up with Scott Mitchell, a guitarist. Mitchell became the first member of Brian's band, Marilyn Manson and the Spooky Kids. The point of the band, for Brian Warner, was to push the limits of American censorship laws.

Marilyn Manson and the Spooky Kids

Brian Warner chose the name Marilyn Manson based on actress Marilyn Monroe and murderer Charles Manson. Of his new name, Brian Warner says, "I picked that as the fakest stage name of all to say that this is what show business is, fake." The Spooky Kids (Marilyn's band) decided to follow Manson's lead and they all chose famous female first names paired with serial killer last names. The band's original line-up included guitarist Daisy Berkowitz, bassist Olivia Newton-Bundy, the drummer Sara Lee Lucas and the keyboardist Zsa Zsa Speck. They've become one of the most controversial bands in history.

Marilyn Manson and The Matrix

Marilyn Manson is not well liked by some people, and has been protested just about everywhere he plays. Despite having an over-the-top public image and some controversial lyrics and stage shows, Marilyn has managed to make a name for himself as a serious artist. He's contributed songs to blockbuster movies like The Matrix Reloaded, Bowling for Columbine, From Hell and Resident Evil. Marilyn Manson has also appeared on the big screen in movies like Party Monster and Bowling for Columbine.
