Ex-Marilyn Manson keyboardist Madonna Wayne Gacy (real name Stephen Gregory Bier Jr.) doesn't exactly have the best relationship with his ex-bandmate Marilyn Manson. In 2016, Gacy had some unkind words, saying "I can’t wait to do: the electric Boogaloo, the Texas two step, the waltz, and an Irish jig on his grave," and now in 2017 he's wishing an equal amount of harm on Manson.
As you may know, Manson was injured after a stage prop fell on him during a show in New York over the weekend, which has forced Manson to cancel nine of his upcoming shows. Instead of wishing him well, Gacy says "this is why old wasted people shouldn't fumble around in the dark" and that he "hopes he suffers." Tell us how you really feel!
"I guess he was close enough for my black magic to work.
"This is why old wasted people shouldn't fumble around in the dark.
"If he had broken his ankle [onstage like he was saying the night before the accident], he wouldn't be walking around like this, that is probably just more of his hyperbole.
"I recall the same excuse being used to cancel a Los Angeles show when all it was was a slightly sprained ankle.
"And anyways, if you're going to climb the scaffolding, shouldn't you be doing that during 'My Monkey'?
"Well, if it weren't for the guns, the truss would have actually hit him pretty hard.
"Well, he is pretty famous for turning his wasted mistakes into serendipitous publicity events.
"The converse is also true: he often turns publicity events into wasted mistakes.
"The guns (I assume) were carved out of foam, which is really typical like Ozzy's demons. And the truss maybe is aluminum. When you're shipping things around the country you want them to be as light as possible and need as few crew hands as possible to move and set up.
"I'm only 16 miles away [from the venue]. And as the crow flies (or the voodoo works) it's even shorter than that…
"I forgive him, but I hope he suffers."
Gacy was Manson's keyboardist from 1989 to 2007, at which point Gacy sued him for unpaid partnership proceeds. Manson countered for breach of contract, and the lawsuit was settled outside court.
