Marilyn Manson Drummer To Play On Despite Broken Bone

As his band’s Saturday night show at New York’s Hammerstein Ballroom drew to a close, Marilyn Manson ripped a page out of the rock concert handbook and trashed his stage set.

However, he also trashed his drummer in the process.

Manson drummer Ginger Fish (born Kenny Frank Wilson) suffered a broken collarbone after falling from his drum riser during Manson’s destructive finale, according to a spokesperson for the band’s label, Interscope Records.

Manson and Fish were locked in a tug-of-war over part of the drum kit when Fish lost his balance and fell to the floor. He laid there for several minutes before crew members realized the drummer’s fall was not an act.

The band’s manager escorted Fish to a hospital, where he was treated and released, according to the Interscope spokesperson.

Interscope said Manson and company will not miss any dates of their Guns, God and Government tour due to the injury, and said Fish will be perched on the
drum stool with his arm in a sling when the tour plays the State Theatre in Detroit on Tuesday.
