Marilyn Manson - Media links, articles

Here be places other than fansites (usually) where I found articles, interviews, music clips, record reviews, a book review and even my original inspiration.

Book Review -The Long Hard Road Out of Hell

From February 1998
Whilst it's clear that this guy is not a fan of Manson's work or opinions, I still found his article worth reading. It's not so much a book review as one person's perspective on what Manson represents based on passages in his biography.

The Media Made Me Do It

It's thanks to channel 4, a UK Television company, and NME (New Musical Express), a leading UK music paper, that you're right here right now. Their documentary, 'The Devil Made Me Do It', was the spark that caused Marilyn to light my fire. Because just when you think nothing new can ever interest you again, you are lifted back into a world of meaning.
