Who could ever forget Poison, Ratt, Warrent or any of
the rest of the "hair and glitter" bands of the 80's

Actually, Marilyn Manson would'nt be so ridiculous if he was'nt such
a sponge. I know that originality in Rock n Roll is hard to come 
these days, if not downright impossible. Everybody rips off everybody
in one way or another, but geez, most bands have the ability to mask
their influences with a tinge of their own originality.

I gotta hand it to Manson, if yer gonna steal, steal from the
best. Third rate androgony straight from Bowie's Ziggy Stardust days,
the macabre theatrics of Alice Cooper, the satanic day-glo & whiteface
of King Diamond, the anti-establishment, better than thou, up yours  attitude of Johnny Rotten, and the same old anti-religious ramblings
of who knows how many fat assed pompous rockers. 

Manson knows what sells, so in that respect he should get
all the credit in the world.

Its amazing how everything gets retreaded, and how each generation
claims it as their own and to be original.

"15 minute of fame" is what Warhol said, and he was'nt lying.
