Brian Warner, (better known as Marilyn Manson) took two of the names of his biggest influences (Marilyn Monroe and Charles Manson) to make his stage name decades ago. Now after all this time, a letter that the latter half of his name penned to him while incarcerated for life due to conspiracy to commit murder has shown up online.
The letter was discovered by a Charles Manson fan site back in 2012. Only now it’s up for everyone to see. The hand written letter doesn’t make a whole lot of sense.
Transcript of the letter:
“To Marilyn Manson –
It’s taken me a long time to get there from where I could touch M. Manson. Now I got a card to play – you may look into my non-profit, ATWA, and give Manson what you think he’s got coming for Air, Trees, Water, and you. Or I will pay Manson what you think Manson got coming – the music has make Manson into Abraxas Devil, and I’m SURE you would want some of what I got from what I got. It’s a far out balance. Beyond good and bad, right, wrong. What you don’t do is what I will do – what you did a sing-along, and let it roll and said how you saved me a lot of steps – I don’t need, it’s not a need or a want. Couped – coup. Ghost dancers slay together and you’re just in my grave Sunstroker Corona-coronas-coronae – you seen me from under with it all standing on me. That’s 2 dump trucks – doing the same as CMF 000007”
Marilyn Manson has yet to respond to the letter. I kind of don’t blame him for that. How would you respond to this, exactly?
