Marilyn Manson stunned the crowd at the Kerrang! Awards in London last night telling them after accepting Best Album, for Holy Wood, “If a high school shooting gives you best album then bring it on!”
Manson’s reference was to the deaths of several students at Columbine High School in Denver, Colorado two years ago.
Dylan Klebold and Eric Harris both claimed they were influenced by Manson’s music.
Staind lead singer Aaron Lewis defended Manson’s comments to Worldpop telling them “I think his comments were aimed at the media hype surrounding the event rather than the killings.”
