What's up with Marilyn Manson popping up in stories lately? Namely the one last week where Limp Bizkit's Wes Borland said he was concerned about Manson's internal organs, and now we've got a much grosser one that involves Slipknot frontman Corey Taylor, a cup of vomit, and a dancing Marilyn Manson in only his underwear.
Here's what Corey Taylor thinks, according to his interview with Rolling Stone. All of the following occurred during the 2001 Ozzfest Tour.
“I was pretty lit, pretty much for that whole tour. I do remember throwing up in a cup and drinking it in front of Manson and he kind of freaked out. He didn’t really know how to take it. And then he ran into our dressing room in tighty-whitey underwear and kind of danced for us and kind of ran back out, and we were like, ‘What the fuck just happened?'”
"We don't really try to fuck with each other, and when we do, it gets really weird," he continues with a laugh. "At the same time, there's a positive competition there that we both respond to. When we play with him, we watch him tear it down every night, and that just makes us want to tear it down every night, too. So there's a mutual respect that goes along with that positive competition that will make for great shows no matter where we are. To me, that's the best respect that you can show a fellow artist, especially someone you really enjoy what they do."
While you won't see Taylor head banging much on stage, or drinking his own vomit, you can catch Manson and Slipknot on tour together for the remainder of June, all throughout July, and then more dates in August.
