THE FIRST TIME WITH... SERIES 9 - 2. MARILYN MANSON (320kbs-m4a/136mb/59mins)
BBC Radio 6 Music broadcast: 31st January 2018
Marilyn Manson shares his musical milestones with Matt Everitt in a programme first broadcast in 2015.
He recalls early passions (KISS, the Beatles' White Album and Xanadu by Olivia Newton John), how he rebelled against his strict religious education by stealing, selling then re-stealing his schoolmates' albums, and creating the character Marilyn Manson for a fake article while a teenage music journalist.
He also looks back on his career, from shock punk oddball to the rock superstar, who sold 7 million copies of his second album in 1996. Never shy of confronting his reputation, Manson also details his arrest and his experiences as a hate figure for the US media.
