In a surprising turn of events, I just received a press release from Marilyn Manson's record label that confirms the reunification of Marilyn Manson and guitarist Twiggy Ramirez, who left MM in 2002.
"The duo that started it all, are back together to finish where they left off.
The two who co-wrote Antichrist Superstar, Mechanical Animals, and Holy Wood will be sharing the stage once again.
Joining Manson and Twiggy onstage for the U.S. leg of the Rape of the World Tour will be Chris Vrenna, Rob Holliday, and Ginger Fish. Tim Skold has amicably split with Manson, but future collaborations aren’t being ruled out between the two."
It's too bad the St. Louis February 10 show at the Pageant is so very sold out. Here's a video for "Rock is Dead," my favorite Twiggy-penned tune.
