Marilyn Manson Roughs Up Spin Editor


After his concert at the Hammerstein Ballroom in New York, Marilyn Manson has a backstage run-in with Spin magazine editor Craig Marks, who claims that Manson assaults and threatens to kill him.

According to Marks, Manson, upset over not getting the cover of the latest issue of Spin, invited him backstage, then into his dressing room, where two of Manson's bodyguards grab him by the throat and pin him to a wall as Manson tells him, "I can kill you, your family and everyone you know." Manson is tweaked because he didn't get the cover of the latest issue of Spin. In a $24 million lawsuit Marks files, he claims that after Manson's bodyguards let him go, the rocker said, "That's what you get when you disrespect me." Manson refers to the incident as a "conversation," posting on his website: "I told him that I didn't care what he prints or weather or not I'm on the cover. I simply no longer wanted to work with him or his magazine that obviously has a lack of respect for musicians and their fans." The case is later settled, and free from legal consequences, Manson admits that he avoided arrest by hiding out in Trump Tower.
