Nobody is blaming school shootings on rock provocateur Marilyn Manson anymore these days. That doesn’t mean the "antichrist indie star" hasn’t experienced a creative resurrection. Manson’s latest album Born Villain, released last year on Cooking Vinyl Records, received praise as his best effort in years and the single “No Reflection” netted him a Grammy Nomination for Best Hard Rock/Metal Performance. Accolades aside, with Twiggy in tow, the rocker is hitting the road, returning to Anaheim for the first time in more than three years as his current tour winds down. There may be a smattering of protesters outside, but they’ll easily be outnumbered by a multigenerational legion of goths and other assorted Mansonites looking for anthems of alienation from their dark lord.
