As the world continues to react to the death of cult leader and mass murderer Charles Manson, rock artists are responding to the news in myriad ways. For shock-rocker Marilyn Manson, it was through sharing a previously recorded cover version of Manson’s 1970 song, “Sick City,” on social media.
That was a move not at all appreciated by KISS frontman Paul Stanley, who slammed Manson for posting the cover upon the cult leader’s death.
“[It’s] pathetic when somebody [whose] career never really took off is desperate enough to try for publicity by connecting himself to the news of a murdering scumbag’s death,” Stanley raged on Twitter.
Marilyn Manson has yet to respond to Stanley’s comments, but don’t be surprised if this beef explodes into a war of words between the two. Grab your popcorn and stay tuned!
